This morning my girlfriends chatted about their clean eating menus for the week and how they’re eliminating sugar. And I thought “that sounds really nice” lol. It does, it does. But I am just not ready yet. What I am capable of doing right now is taking baby steps to cleaner eating.
There was a time when I could care less about the health content of the food I ate. That’s when I was “young and dumb”. I’m grown now and I no longer rely on old school feel good recipes. I’m trying new things and cooking in a lighter way.
I used to fry bacon then use that oil to drown my cabbage in while I boiled all of the nutrients right out of it, thinking that was the flavor it needed. Smh bacon-flavored veggies. Not the way to go.
Tonight hubby lightened up our cabbage and its never tasted better!
- 1 head cabbage shredded
- 1 stalk scallion whole
- 1 carrot shaved
- 1 Tbs pulled pork
- 1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp creole seasoning
- pinch of salt & pepper
- sprinkle granulated chicken bouillon
- Heat oil in medium frying pan. Add pulled pork, scallion, salt and pepper. Saute on medium high heat for two minutes.
- Add cabbage, carrot, onion powder, creole seasoning, and bouillon. Continue to saute for eight minutes, stirring every two minutes.
