I’m BACK in the saddle again…

19 Apr

Good evening everyone. I’ve unfortunately had a rough couple of months, but I believe my mindset is back on track. You know how you just get in a funk and can’t be bothered to try eating healthy (or anything for that matter?) Well, I had a successful day yesterday and today was even better. I’ve got to say, I really enjoy Burger King’s chicken, cranberry and apple salad. While it is rather expensive for fast food (I’m used to the dollar menu) it is definitely worth the price. It will cost you 13 points but it is very large and very filling. So if you find yourself out and about and hungry, you might want to try it as a healthy alternative to the usual fast food burger/fries. I also tried a delicious recipe for Pineapple Pork Chops. In the kitchen, I almost always use some sort of olive oil, garlic, and Italian seasoning, no matter what kind of meat I’m using. So I wanted to try something different. I’m almost ALWAYS skeptical about trying new recipes because they’re almost ALWAYS a let down. I was extremely impressed with these chops. The only issue I had with the recipe is that I did not have fresh ginger or red pepper flakes. I substituted 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger and used black pepper to taste. All in all, I will DEFINITELY make this again. Find the recipe here. http://www.cozi.com/live-simply/recipes/pineapple-pork-chops or under “Food” on my Pinterest. Have a great week!
