LOW-CAL FESTIVE FARE: 'Pork Chops with Pomegranate Glaze'

This pork chops with pomegranate glaze recipe from Special K is just one more example that "Healthy - Low Calorie" food can be phenomenal!

So many people tell me that they'd do a better job of watching their weight and controlling their daily caloric intake, if 'Low Calorie - Healthy Eating' wasn't just "for the birds!"

Of course by telling me this, what they've unintentionally really told me is that 'Low Calorie - Healthy Eating' must be pretty darn good because birds get after their fare with a tenacity that makes me wanna eat bowls of bird seed!

This recipe for example, is just one offering that makes you WANT to Run Down a 'Low Calorie - Healthy Meal!"

Give it a try. Just remember to choose very lean pork chops. When you do, pork is quite healthy and low in calories too. Remember the slogan "Pork...The Other White Meat?" Well now you can see that it's true.

Until Next Time, 

Be creative and you too can eat "Just Like A Bird!"
