Rainbow Steak Kabobs--HCG

After this past weekend of camping with the family, I've come up with some new ideas or "series" to post recipes for. My parents are doing the "HCG" diet, so there was quite a few restrictions. Both of my parents are having tremendous results from this diet, but my Dad had to complain about the "boring" diet. My mom can eat the same thing for every meal and not get tired of it, and my dad will get tired of a dish if served more than once a week (haha) so this diet is pretty hard of him. My mom isn't much of a cook either (sorry, mom) so experimenting and spices and such just go out the window.

I, on the other hand, love to cook and getting more into the experimental phases. So I've decided to put together some recipes my parents could cook to change up the boring mundane meals into something to look forward to.

I looked up some "rules" for the diet to make sure I don't use the "big no nos" and such. HOWEVER, my portions are probably not right. I don't have a food scale, so I'm eyeing it. If you are on this diet, make sure you use the right amount for whichever phase you're in.

To start us out, and to get outside on the grill while its still pretty...

1 very lean steak, cut into cubes [P2-100 grams per person]
Colorful bell peppers--1 red, 1 orange, 1 yellow, cut into bite-sized chunks
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp lemon pepper
a few lemon slices [P2- only allowed 1 lemon a day]

~Toss steak cubes with salt and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling. Then toss with lemon pepper.
~Toss the bell pepper pieces with a few slices of lemons (or few drops of fresh lemon juice).
~Alternate between bell pepper and steak on skewers. Cook on a grill over medium heat for 8 minutes, turning often to let sides of bell pepper char evenly.
~Enjoy with a piece of Melba toast or Grissino breadstick.
For the others in your family (that are NOT on the diet), I suggest serving mashed potatoes on the side.

["P2" = Phase 2, "P3" = Phase 3]

I toyed with the 17 day diet earlier this summer and had a list of ingredients only. This recipe would have fit, but i sure did miss sauces and marinades
