Healthy recipe - Lamb Cutlets with Pea Mash & Mint Sauce

Here's to another year of good health & fitness! Let's kick off another year of fitness success. I was really afraid that after Christmas and NYE I would lose all motivation but luckily thanks to myfitnesspal iPhone app and the support of my friends/family/husband I'm still disciplined. So far I've lost 11.2KG's, so pleased with myself and my achievements. I also can't believe I went to the movies the other day without eating popcorn!!!! Sigh. I love buttery, super fatty popcorn but I had to be strong! Actually it was Wayne (my husband) that was holding me back from buying any hahaha, oh man you don't know how big my love is for popcorn.

Since about November I've been buying the Healthy Food Guide Magazine which I have found really helpful for dinner ideas. I also love the nutritional stats they put on each recipe, it goes hand in hand with myfitnesspal calorie counting.

A few days ago my husband was staying late at work which brings the dilemma of having to cook for myself, so I had to find a very quick recipe to avoid feelings of lazyness and opting out for take out.
The healthy food guide magazine had this easy recipe of Lamb Cutlets with Pea Mash and Mint Sauce. So delicious and so easy!
