I’ve decided to get myself back on track after having fallen off track since December. I’m doing a very strict Dr. monitored diet for the next three weeks. I hope to drop 15lbs but expect 10lbs.
The diet is challenging not because I normally eat poorly or over indulge; it’s challenging because I can’t have wine!

All kidding aside, it boils down to about 800 calories a day made up of virtually no processed carbs or sugars: 100g of protein 2x a day, 230g of vegetables 2x a day and a zillion gallons of water!

Tonight we made a 400g lean roast loin of pork. Place pork in a Dutch oven with a quick spritz of Pam, and about 1/4 cup of LS chicken stock in a hot oven 350F for 20 minutes.
For the sauce, sauté 1/2 cup thinly sliced onions with a squirt of Pam and a dash of LS chickened stock, when translucent, add 1/2 cup thinly sliced mushrooms and 1-2 cloves of finely minced garlic, a 1/2 tsp thyme and 1tbsp Dijon mustard. Sauté until everything wilts and the mustard is evenly distributed. Add a 1/4 cup lemon juice and heat until warm. When the pork is cooked remove from heat and allow to rest. Make a nice bed of greens with arugula and spinach; slice the pork thinly and distribute 100g onto each plate with greens. Garnish with the warm mushroom and onion mixture, drizzling some of the liquid over all of the greens. Mmmmmm! It was deelish! Hope you enjoy.
