Looking at the picture above, you would never know this started from a Weight Watchers recipe. Yes, you CAN eat healthy and deliciously while on the plan. I’m a week and a half in and doing well… until they brought in home made brownies and other decadent desserts into the office today for a big celebration. I had planned for it and I made sure not to over due it. This meal is a great dish and something you can make on days where you may have eaten too much at earlier meals and still have a good healthy dinner to end the day with.
As I said, this one started as a Weight Watchers Recipe for Creamy Mustard Pork Chops. I made a couple of adjustments due to what was in the fridge; green onions instead of shallots, fat free sour cream instead of reduced fat and added kale and jarred roasted red peppers that are packed in water. The veggies are freebie foods, YAY!!! The result was a delicious chop that was not only colorful but only 5 points.

OK, you want to diet but hate diet food? This was NOT diet food. I mean, it was a lower cal recipe but it sure didn’t taste that way. I am really loving the crunch of kale and as I told you a few days ago, my hubby is a kale-a-holic to the max so he loved this so much. The pork was tender and full of flavor. And the sauce.. what can I say? Weight Watchers had it nailed.
This does not mean my blog is going to turn into a rehash of Weight Watchers recipes. Oh no. I am dedicated to creating my own meals out of what’s in the pantry but with a few of theirs thrown in as well. However, I cannot help but to “Lorify” the recipes and put my own spin on it. After all, recipes are just a “suggestion” in my opinion.
