What's for Low-Carb Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner? #2

Well, the old thread was almost at 400 posts, so I figured it was time for #2! DH took his daughter home this weekend, so I mostly just drank wine and ate cheese (perfectly low-carb!) to celebrate the fact that I didn't have to provide a healthy meal for anyone! DH is now working with a friend of his from high school who is a personal trainer and diet coach, so he's on a fairly strict moderate carb regimen, which requires him to eat small servings of carbohydrates at specific times (scheduled around his workouts). It's a bit boring (made more so by the fact that DH is really trying to eat "clean," so he's avoiding condiments and anything else that might help make the meals interesting), but it does seem to be working - he's down 8 lbs in the first week. His goal is to look like Joe Mangiamello by the time I get back from my gig at the end of August, or so he says (lucky me, right???) :)

Anyway, given those parameters, dinner tonight for me will probably be some leftover qeema inside an omelet, or perhaps a grilled flank steak with preserved lemon butter and roasted broccoli. It's hot as hades in NYC right now, though, so I'm guessing the leftovers will win. DH already has some leftover chicken and orzo for his moderate carb meal, so I'll leave him to it!
