Pork chops and apple sauce are a classic combination, but store-bought sauces are usually super high in sugar, sodium, and other unnatural ingredients. This recipe keeps things Paleo by making the sauce from scratch. These savory pork chops are perfectly complemented by tart green apples and caramelized onions. As a bonus, it’s a one-pan meal so you know clean-up will be a breeze. Clean eating and easy preparation – sounds like a winner to me!
One look at cauliflower, and you might see a big ball of confusion. You wonder how to cut it, how to use it, and if it will even taste good!
Cauliflower is such a diverse cruciferous vegetable that is a great replacement for meat and high-carb foods. In this recipe, you pulse the cauliflower in the food processor until it is broken down into a rice-like texture, and then stir-fry it.
The recipe takes just five minutes to prepare, and only 15 minutes to cook!
This delish dish is filled with flavor, from the savory grilled tilapia to the intense garlic and meaty mushrooms. The dish is low in fat and calories, and doesn’t require a ton of prep or cooking! And while it may seem light, it’s definitely a filling meal. I love to serve this recipe with a green vegetable and side salad.
Not all Mexican food has to be bad for you! I know, I know, it’s great news!
I mean, sure, when you stuff rice, beans, and cheese into a carb-loaded tortilla, you’re not getting a low-calorie, low-carb meal. That’s why you need to rethink the ingredients you put together.
If you wanted the tortilla, you probably don’t need to stuff it with a bunch of high-carb ingredients like rice and beans, right?
If it’s the filling you love, ditch the tortilla and try this easy Mexican salad instead. It features lean ground beef, flavorful spices, and creamy homemade guacamole for a meal that will make your mouth water.
