Ready for something new?? I found another easy and unique recipe from the Kraft Foods website- such a great resource!

I had never used hoisin sauce before, and was a little nervous about the sugar content. I keep it very light and also added a Splenda packet to get sweetness without as much sugar. I also love green onions, so I double the portion called for!

I often use my Spiral and Slice tool from the Pampered Chef® for thinly sliced carrots. You may have a mandolin for easy slicing or a rough chop is fine for this recipe! I find smaller pieces of veggies make the recipe cook more quickly as pork cooks pretty quickly itself and overcooking makes for dry meat! This also helps you to focus on small bites and to use the veggie as a compliment to the high protein meat source.

Take small bites, pause in between each bite and pay attention to natural fullness cues. This portion size differs for every person, every surgery and every stage. Allows follow the nutrition guidance from your team! For most of my patients, I encourage them to listen to natural stopping cues instead of focusing on the portion size.
