Asian Inspired Pork Chops

Although I added on the low calorie section to my recipes page, I have yet to really add to it. Sticking with the 21 Day Fix and working with numerous people has made it nearly impossible for me to think about food and not make it Fixed Approved. It's sort of like when I first became a Zumba instructor. After doing Zumba for so long it was hard for me not to listen to a song and not start choreographing it for a Zumba class in my head, lol. 

But anyways, to try and make this short, I guess what I am getting at is I promise this weekend I will add on at least 1 low calorie recipe :) I am on the fence about which one I will be making but I know either way everyone will love it.

Anyways, I was kind of disappointed that I didn't get to put up a recipe with pictures the other day. The Chicken Marsala I added at the end of my blog is great and I absolutely love it but I didn't have any pictures so I figured I would make it up to everyone and post another recipe tonight. 

Today at work I thought I had seen someone carrying in my favorite Chinese take out so all day at work I was thinking about sweet and sour chicken. I had already taken out pork the night before and knew I had to cook it regardless so I figured why not make an Asian-esq inspired pork chop for dinner. So this is how I came up with my recipe for tonight, and I have got to say O-M-G I think I am going to have to make some more soon, and that's huge coming from me. Usually I hate pork but I thought these were exceptionally tasty and best part of all is they were super easy to make!
