Here we are week 3 of the hCG diet! Only 3 more to go! Ugh, that seems like a LOOOONG time! I think I can, I think I can! :) Really, it is starting to get a little boring...

I wanted to share a yummy recipe with you, I adapted it from the recipe found HERE. I made this last night and paired it with a small filet mignon. It was fantastic! So yummy, so hearty, and SO HEALTHY! Even if you are not on the hCG diet, you should try this. You will not be disappointed! It was quick and easy too. Note: Saffron is super expensive but makes the recipe so just use a pinch! You'll thank me :)
