I received my Lap-band on 5/19/2008. I created this recipe especialy for people who have had bariatric surgery, particularly Lap-band, but it is healthy for anyone to eat.
This is very quick-to-fix. It makes a large and very filling entrée for lunch or supper. If you have had bariatric surgery, cut it in half and save the other half for the next day or a snack later the same day (if your family doesn't gobble it up first)!
Remember to take small bites and chew each bite at least 25 times before swallowing!Submitted by HEALTHYLIVN4ME
Wonderful for WLS patients or anyone trying to get a little more protein in their diets, or trying to cut the fat but still have a little desert!
This recipe is so easy to make!
Because I have a Lap-Band, I used the SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend in this recipe but if you want or need to avoid all sugar, you may replace it with 3 Tablespoons of the SPLENDA® that measures like sugar (not the packets) and you will need to find a sugar-free ketchup. The nutritional information will need to be changed accordingly.
It is important to begin with very fresh and very lean boneless pork chops. I found a large Family- Pack of 6 chops that weighed 2.30 pounds. When I removed every last bit of fat, I ended up with exactly 2 pounds of lean meat.
Other similar recipes call for the sauce to be cooked and thickened before pouring over the chops but I found that the sauce thickens very nicely on its own without pre-cooking it, thus saving a step and time!
Just a side note: The first time I made this, I forgot the ketchup and it was still delicious.Submitted by HEALTHYLIVN4ME
This is a quick microwave recipe that makes a yummy snack! It could also be pureed but may need a tablespoon or two of hot water added.
While eveyone else is having a high-fat, high-sugar dessert at Thanksgiving, make this yummy alternative in a jiffy for yourself! But, watchout! Everyone else may want one, too!Submitted by HEALTHYLIVN4ME
This delicious alternative to classic pulled pork will be a hit any way you serve it! Serve with Nabisco® Reduced-Calorie Triscuit® Crackers or 1/2 of a small whole-wheat hamburger bun, if tolerated. Nutrition information is not included for these serving options.
If you are in the early post-surgery stages, this can be pureed, also.Submitted by HEALTHYLIVN4ME
Prepare this recipe as written if you are more than 6 months post-op and have received permission to eat the nuts and raisins. Otherwise, prepare without the pine nuts and raisins and save about 31 calories per serving. May also be pureed for early post-op Lap-Banders without the pine nuts and raisins.Submitted by HEALTHYLIVN4ME
