This edition features a healthy alternative to Asian cuisine. One of my favorite foods, before my weight loss journey, was Chinese. With weight loss you have to learn to adapt and find alternate options to the old favorites.
So this week I introduce you to:
Lee’s Sweet-n-Sour Pork
This recipe requires 2 bags each of frozen riced cauliflower and chopped broccoli.
In a large pan or wok, spray olive oil spray and then add both bags of riced cauliflower and chopped broccoli, over medium to high heat. I use the small Kroger bags because it is easier to measure out my servings. With this recipe, I used a pork tenderloin that I cooked a couple weeks ago that was vacuum sealed and placed in the freezer.
I let the cauliflower and broccoli simmer until it was no longer frozen. I added 8 tbsp each La Choy gluten free sweet n sour sauce and island mango marinade.
I folded the marinade and sweet n sour sauce into the broccoli and cauliflower until it was completely covered and then let simmer for another 10-15 minutes.
I chopped 6 ounces of tenderloin for each serving, then added that to 1.5 cups of the broccoli and cauliflower.
This makes for a great healthy alternative to what you would typically buy at a restaurant. The neat thing is you can add just about any meat to this dish from chicken to lean beef. The possibilities are endless.
As always, I use MyFitnessPal to create my recipes and get my nutritional information.
In closing, I want to update you on the progress of my book. I am currently in the editing stage. As soon as that is through, I am going to shop for publishing. When I get to that point I am going to present everyone with a chance to participate in a way to pre-buy a copy of the book. I’ll have more details on that the closer we get to that point.
With this being the season of giving and Christmas, remember to do all you can to make a difference and add value to the life of someone this season.
