From Doctors Orders: 101 Medically Proven Tips for Losing Weight

Get together with friends who like to cook healthy meals and are passionate about maintaining their own healthy weight (or are even in the weight-loss process like you are.) Exchange healthy recipes, eat wonderful food and enjoy a good companionship. At the end of the meal, you don’t even have to tip (thought you might want to off to help clean up.)

Healthy Recipe Suggestion:

Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin and Red Pepper Grits (serves 4)

3 cups low sodium chicken broth
3/4 cup quick cooking grits, uncooked
2 tablespoons butter
1 clove garlic, minced
7 ounces roasted red peppers, drained and diced
1 pound lean pork tenderloin, cut into 4 equal portions
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey

Directions:

Bring broth to a boil. Add grits, butter and garlic, stirring with a whisk. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in red peppers. Cover and set aside.

While grits sit, heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from pan.

Stir in vinegar and honey, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute or until thick, stirring constantly with a whisk. Return pork to pan; turn to coat.

To serve, divide grits into 4 equal portions and place on plates. Add 1 piece of pork and evenly divide the sauce over grits.
