3D Diet Overview w/recipe

Diet book review badge

3D Diet, Discipline, & Discipleship
This is an older book, but I really enjoy the philosophy behind it.  I think a faith-based weight loss program is wonderful, and I'll be sharing few others with you as well.  Information from the inside flaps:

This powerful, life-changing story of the woman who developed America's first faith-based diet program has everything you need to start your own 12-week 3D program.

  The author guides and encourages you to embrace the three essential components of a healthy life:
  • Diet - adopt a balanced food plan and exercise program
  • Discipline - form healthy habits that will set you free to be the person you were meant to be
  • Discipleship - nurture your inner life and commit wholeheartedly to what you believe in
  You'll find everything you need to begin, including a complete food plan, new exercise information, recipe, and member testimonials to spur you on.  So begin your exciting journey today!

About the Author:  The originator of the first Christ-centered group diet program, Diet, Discipline and Discipleship, Carol Showalter has been a spokeswoman for the program for more than 30 years.  Carol and her husband, William, live in Massachusetts and have four grown children and five grandchildren.  (from 2002)

(a bit unfocused - sorry.  We had this for dinner after a late night Girl Scout meeting and I snapped a quick picture with my camera, on my Christmas dishes.)

1 pound extra-lean ground beef
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
6 sandwich buns

In large skillet, combine ground beef, onion, and green pepper; saute over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until beef is thoroughly cooked.  Drain well.

  Add remaining ingredients, except for buns; mix well.  Cover and simmer 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently.  Serve on buns

Serves 6
Exchanges - 1 1/2 starch, 1 vegetable, 2 medium-fat meat

This was a simple and tasty dish; nothing fancy but very satisfying and good for you.  I'd make it again any time.  Fun part, as I was looking into this book online, I found that there's a new and improved version, all updated in 2010.  Your Whole Life: The 3D Plan for Eating Right, Living Well, and Loving God definitely seems worth checking out.  There's even an online community and support system over at 3D Your Whole Life.
