I’ve let myself go as far as my low-sodium/anti-stroke/lowering-blood-pressure diet. I’ve been traveling a lot lately (well, for concerts–I know I keep bringing up having seen The Replacements, because I’m STILL just overwhelmed at how utterly great that show was, and most recently, I went back to the Twin Cities, so I could see Fleetwood Mac, which also was an amazing show), and in just about 10 days, I have ANOTHER trip coming up (no concert this time though!). So needless to say, with the stress of coming and going, plus keeping up the blog, AND my real FT job, eating well has kind of gone out the window. I have started doing yoga to help combat the stress, as well as tone my flab and help the BP, but I need to get my diet back on track. And since we got a bit of a cold snap over the past few days, I thought these Apple Dressing Pork Chops were a perfect healthy but tasty meal.
(If you’re interested, for the green beans, I just sauteed them in about a tablespoon of olive oil, seasoned them with salt and pepper, added a splash of lemon juice and tossed in some lemon zest. Jay and the bambino loved them, as did I!)
They were a hit! And easy enough that they’ll show up as a week-night meal.
And I’ll take this opportunity to remind you that I have a Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker giveaway going on…You have until this Friday to enter if you haven’t already!
