Do you know what the hardest recipe is to find online? Chicken Ghallaba. I found one recipe for it after I found other people who were also searching for it online, and they weren’t having any luck either!
Last winter I discovered this dish after eating at a Lebanese restaurant for the first time. I fell in love with this dish but wanted to make it fit the 6-Week Body Makeover plan, which was why I was so fervently searching for it online. 😉
, a spice that I had a hard time finding at first until I realized that I just needed to hop on over to an Indian or Arabic grocery store. You can also find it online or at Cost Plus World Market as a blend. The problem with the blend is that you aren’t going to be following the recipe exactly as it’s written, but if you’re good with that then you’ll do fine – I’m someone that needs to follow the recipe because I’m not a born chef.
You know what the neatest thing is about these meals that I eat? As long as they are plan friendly and I’m using portion control and eating on schedule, you can actually lose weight eating like this. This sure isn’t a diet and I love the food I eat. Besides the fact that it keeps me off of the addictive ingredients like sugar and flour because they aren’t a part of the program.
Enjoy the recipe!
