I’m just going to be honest – my weight has been up and down over the years and I can’t blame it all on giving birth twice.
You see, I love food and I love cooking. What I forget sometimes is that food doesn’t have to be high in fat or calories to taste delicious.
When I saw the boneless pork chops on sale this week I was reminded of one of my favorite recipes from my ‘Healthy Foods’ files.
There’s so much flavor you won’t even miss the fat or extra calories.
