Skinny Meals for #SundaySupper

DSCN7940

Of course our #SundaySupper team got together to host a “Skinny Event!” Aren’t you excited!!!!!???? Sue from Sue’s Nutrition Buzz is hosting this fabulous event so lets give her a hand! You know Sunithi, AKA  Sue, I’ve cooked a dish from her before, I just posted it last week, Corn Chowder Mac N Cheese!

Healthifying a dish, is very important to me. It’s part of the reason why this blog was started because I love cooking and I love sharing recipes with people, sharing is half of it but making the recipe Good…..Healthy or even Hearty is the other half to me. I try replacing artificial ingredients with fresh ingredients, I substitute additions that are high in fat with low and in fat and high in fiber additions, I also try and make each of my dishes scream FLAVOR!!

You know that I love my #SundaySupper crew and I’ve made MANY of their dishes, this weeks theme is no different. I am setting a goal to make sure I put at least 5 if not more of these awesome dishes on my MUST TRY list over the next few months because once baby Drew is born this Momma is going strict again!

When choosing a recipe for this week I contemplated making a favorite dish and healthifying it, give you the true meaning behind what this Momma tries to do in the kitchen but I wanted to make something new. Something different. So I reverted back to my favorite site that I first found when I started making healthier dishes in my kitchen. Man did I pick a good one!!

Add browned pork to the crock pot, along with the remaining ingredients.

I wanted to serve this over brown rice, however I was out (hate when that happens) so instead I served it over Stir Fry noodles. JUST AS GOOD!
