Grilled Zucchini and Eggplant topped with Lamb

This meal is easily made in under 20 minutes, which is why it’s a regular in my house and an absolute favourite of mine.  The fresh herbs, grilled vegetables and feta are a match made in heaven, especially when teamed with a perfectly cooked Lamb loin (which isn’t as hard as you think!).  For this recipe, the BBQ is your best friend.  And ladies, don’t be afraid to get in there and do it yourself (the boys have really talked up how hard it is…). Alternatively, you could simply roast the  vegetables and meat in the oven or use a grill hot-plate.

With all the vegetables you’ll well and truly be left feeling full, while knowing that you’re feeding the body and soul a nourishing meal that high in all the nutrients you need such as fibre and protein.  Happy cooking and don’t forget to tag #bodybossrecipes in your instagram upload to share the love and be featured on the @beyourbodyboss gram.
