Steam packets

So I have been trying very hard to lose weight, but so far it is not working. I would very much like to get back to the weight I was at our wedding. Clearly the deployment has been rough on my body, but I am trying to change that. I have been working out in the gym everyday and been trying to eat healthy. I have just started making foil packets to steam on the grill, hopefully these will be a healthier choice than what i have been eating, and will help me start losing the weight. They are very delicious, and I thought that I should share with you guys how to make them! You just pick a meat (lean because the fat will drip off and stay in the packet and the rest of your food will cook in it, so stay away from anything fatty) a veggie and a starch. My favorite so far has been chicken, asparagus and potatoes. Then, you season your food however you want it, but remember that the flavors will mingle so pick a seasoning that would be okay on all the things in the packet. Then you place them all together in a long piece of foil folded them in half and pinch the sides together, if you have rice or are worried about there being enough moisture to steam it, add a 1/4 cup of water or broth into the packet then seal it up. Throw it on the grill on high for 10-20 mins until the packet is fully puffed up, then cut it open and enjoy! (steam will come out when you cut it, so be careful!)
