Comfort food’s on the menu this week and they all are lightened up versions of some classic favorites; keep the sides simple and you’ve got a healthy meal for you and your family. Eating healthy doesn’t mean plain chicken breasts and boring vegetables. You can have healthy versions of richer dishes by being aware how you cook them (baked not fried, steamed not soaked in butter, light or fat free sour cream instead of regular) and they are still flavorful and satisfying.
This looks so delicious and a perfect quick weeknight meal. I think sauteed spinach (with lots of garlic) would be a yummy side and some sliced fruit — might need to add a baked potato for the hubby so its filling enough for him.
Pork Chops with Dijon Herb Sauce, Baked Macaroni & Cheese & a steamed veggie (whatever’s on sale at the grocery store!) To make it even lighter you could do the macaroni as the main dish and omit the pork chops (or visa versa).
Think this with a veggie (roast broccoli or carrots?) and a salad would be perfect.
Big surprise but I’ll probably just pair it with simple veggies and fruit.
