I hate to be cliche, but my New Year’s resolution is to fit into my pre-baby jeans once and for all. With that in mind, I cooked up one of my favorite low-cal dinners. I love this because I don’t feel like I am loosing any of flavor while eating a healthy dinner. You can substitute your favorite meat instead of the pork, or you can throw in practically any vegetable and it’ll turn out healthy, savory, and great. Even better, one serving is 375 calories which is not too shabby for a big dinner!  I found this recipe in a Cooking Light cookbook. These cookbooks are seriously the best. I have tried multiple recipes from Cooking Light and have never been disappointed. Nutrition fats are given for each recipe too.
