Eat– for Good Health

While regular exercise places our bodies at a younger age, it is really the amount we eat that gets us to our ideal weight.  Don’t eat the same thing every day.  That is downright dreary!  Doesn’t the Sherried Pork Tenderoin below look delicious, served with colorful Cole Slaw?  It is company worthy, and is just 190 calories per serving.  Find the recipe under the photo, courtesy of Oxmoor House.

Sherried Pineapple Pork Tenderloin
Ingredients for 4 servings:
  • 1/2  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 1  (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • Cooking spray
  • 1  (6-ounce) can pineapple juice
  • 2  tablespoons  sugar
  • 2  tablespoons  dry sherry
  • 1  tablespoon  low-sodium soy sauce


1. Sprinkle pepper evenly over pork.

2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray; add pork. Cook pork 3 to 4 minutes or until browned, turning occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 10 minutes. Turn pork over; cook 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160° (slightly pink).

3. Place pork on a cutting board; let stand 3 minutes. Cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

4. While pork stands, combine pineapple juice and remaining 3 ingredients; add to pan drippings. Bring to a boil; boil 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 1/4 cup. Spoon sauce over pork slices.

  2. Becky, add anything you happen to have– garbanzos and mango add flavor. Cabbage comes in purple, if you like the confetti look. Here is the basic recipe:

    1/2 cabbage, grated
    1/2 lg. carrot, grated
    1 c. light mayonnaise
    2 pkgs. Sweet & Low
    1 c. 2% fat free milk

    Grate cabbage and carrot in a bowl; set aside. Mix together mayonnaise and Sweet & Low. Gradually add and stir in the 2% milk. Beat by hand until creamy. Pour creamy dressing over cabbage and carrot. Cover with clear wrap and refrigerate.
