Healthy, because

Even smarter

With the combination of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats, this meal is so well rounded and complete for lunch or dinner. It will fill you up and provide you with a lot of nutrients. 

You can also use rice instead of cous cous if you have that more readily available and chicken instead of lamb if you don't eat red meat.
