New Taste Thinking:
Just another super easy, healthy delicious recipes that you can enjoy any night for dinner. The reason for referring to the potatoes and pear as optional is that you can certainly make the skewers without them. My thinking is that as long as you have the oven hot, you may as well roast something to eat as a side dish. Other nice options would include zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, asparagus, Brussels sprouts and so on.
As far as portion size, it depends on how much animal protein you have recently eaten. If you have gone a day or two without eating any, you may have the urge to eat 10 or 12 ounces. As mentioned, The American Heart Association recommends an average of 6 ounces a day. This can be a weekly running average so you may want to keep track.
