HOLY BONKERS what a week it's been so far!
I started a new health & fitness program alongside my Live Your F*ck YES life community (follow along my Instagram for the behind the scenes!) and it's been SO amazing.
My favorite part of it all?
ALL THE FOOD I GET TO EAT.
So many health and fitness meal plans involve LIMITING your food (ahem diet mentality). Newsflash diet culture? Eating 1200 calories a day is NOT going to get you healthy.
It WILL perpetuate the endless diet-binge cycle you've been on for yeaaaars. So get your booty aligned with a program that encourages ALL THE FOOD (and I can already tell this is going to be the most INCREDIBLE program ever -- my body is FEELING it in the BEST way!)
One of my favorite ways to prep for a new program is keeping my meals during the day SUPER simple and having my favorite go-tos for dinner as a treat!
And this combo is one of my absolute FAVORITES, and it doesn't hurt that it's hella affordable and super simple (although it tastes restaurant quality if I do say so myself!)
Check 'er out and let me know what you think!
MUSTARD APPLE PORK TENDERLOIN WITH BRUSSELS & SWEET POTS
1 large pork tenderloin (about 15 ounces)
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp whole grain mustard
2 tsp fennel seeds (optional)
1 large onion, sliced
2 medium Granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced (about 1/4 inch thick)
1/2 cup of apple cider
1 tsp grapeseed oil
2 cups Brussel sprouts
1 sweet potato
1 tbsp avocado/liquid coconut oil
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. Season pork with a dash of sea salt and pepper. Season quartered brussel sprouts and chopped sweet potatoes with avocado/coconut oil and sea salt and put in oven for 8-10 minutes.
3. Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in large nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and sear until all sides are brown (about 5 minutes).
4. Transfer pork to plate and cool slightly, spreading combined mustard over top and sides of pork (optional: press fennel seeds into mustard). 54. Add a tbsp of grapeseed oil, onion and apples into pan and sauté over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
6. Place pork on top of mixture and transfer skillet to oven until the centre of the pork registers 150 degrees F, about 15-20 minutes. Transfer pork to platter and make a foil tent to prevent moisture from escaping.
7. Meanwhile, pour apple cider over apple-onion mixture in skillet. Stir over high heat for about two minutes, until slightly reduced.
8. Slice pork and spoon apple-onion mixture overtop of pork for a nice finish!
