Low carb dinner

Three lamb chops with my very favourite vegetable of all time - Scarlet Runner Beans.

According to Wikipedia, people in America don't eat these beans, although they do grow them for their brilliant red flowers. What a waste! They are delicious; boiled for maybe 5 minutes, drained, and a small knob of butter melted on them. I could actually eat nothing but runner beans when they are in season, but that wouldn't be very nutritionally balanced.

They are also very yummy with cheese sauce, but that is extremely fattening. I've managed to lose 4kg since mid January by assiduously counting the calories in everything I put in my mouth, and don't want to jeopardise my progress.
