French Onion Pork Chops

Here’s a really creative way to enjoy the flavors of French onion soup without the guilt! I’ve been brainstorming ways to reimagine my favorite eats into healthy main dishes and started “Pinteresting” “French onion soup dinner”. I was inspired by this genius recipe on kudoskitchenbyrenee.com and was so happy with the result. If you have some extra time to caramelize onions, you must try this! It takes awhile to really get that brown color and sweet flavor representative of the famous soup, but it’s worth it. Other than that, it just takes a few ingredients and steps. You will be so satisfied with the combination of flavors in this dish, so yummy!!!

Warm Chicken Parmesan Salad

Just got home from a wonderful trip to Ireland and London with an amazing group of friends, and settling back into the daily routine. Though it’s hard to come back to reality, I am looking forward to jumping back on the healthy eating and exercise train. We ate (and drank) like Kings over there and luckily I maintained my weight, only because we walked about 8 miles a day haha. That won’t happen everyday at home, so I need to definitely get back into whippin’ up healthy recipes. Here’s a deliciously simple and light recipe I came across while watching Giada at Home! I tweaked it a bit to lighten even more.
