Ok, I know this is going to sound paradoxical, but here goes: I’m on a mission to eat healthy, but also eat the most delicious food I can find. 

Tony, are you crazy? Nope. Even the venerated Mark Twain has been credited to say this about food, “The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.”

No disrespect, Markie Mark, but I’m going to disagree. Why can’t we cook healthy food that’s absolutely delicious? I say we can!

My life has been a steady quest to find some of the best foods with the healthiest ingredients so you won’t have to give up deliciousness in exchange for healthy.

Today I share my recipe for Low Carb Greek-style Flank Steak with Tangy Yogurt Sauce. Lemon, garlic, and oregano bring out the flavors of this bold and flavorful Mediterranean dish. 

You can substitute out chicken or eggplant for a non-beef or vegetarian version of this dish.
