Fried Pork Chop and Brussel Sprouts
Yes, that’s right, I said fried!
This was today’s lunch. And it was so tasty!
This is a S Meal in the Trim Healthy Mama Plan. For more about the THM plan please see my blog http://saraheveritt.postach.io/post/what-are-you-doing.
I fried this in Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and used the THM Baking Blend with some seasoning for the breading. You can find the Baking Blend on the Trim Healthy Mama online store http://store.trimhealthymama.com. It is a gluten-free, low glycemic baking mix that’s full of fiber! Many of THM recipes call for this little treasure. It’s one of the first specialty ingredients that I purchased. It’s wonderful. You can also make your own. There are recipes on Pinterest. I haven’t gone that route yet!
I mentioned in my previous post about my new found love of brussel sprouts. I found a steamable bag in the freezer section of Aldi for $1.
And 2 large pork chops at Aldi for $3
This made 2 filling meals for $4. Okay, $5.00 when you add the little bit of baking blend and coconut oil and other ingredients I used. But $2.50 for Sunday lunch compared with the at least $11 that I would have spent at a restaurant. It’s just crazy how much I used to spend every day on eating out. But that’s for another post.
