Eating red meat in moderation is not bad for your health and it won’t stop you from losing weight! I advise eating red meat once a week. Not only is this a good pattern to follow for your health, it’s also good for your pocket book and promotes sustainable farming practices. In this recipe if you are going for the chops (as I did) trim off any visible fat before cooking. This meal was designed as an evening one for weight loss, hence the turnip couscous. Spiralizing and then mixing the turnips gives them a fluffy aspect, just like couscous. Never had turnips before? An ancient root vegetable, present in both ancient Greece and Rome, it’s a rich in vitamin C, as are the roasted tomatoes.
