Creamy Spinach Sauce served with Roasted Sweet Potatoes is on of our many healthy pork meals.
Our chef’s have formulated all our healthy pork meals to be low calorie dishes. They prepare this meal with tender pork loin, which is a lean protein. Pork, like poultry, is a white meat and is enriched with lean protein. Many of the same nutrients present in beef are present in pork but with fewer fats and calories.
Our chef’s top this pork with a creamy gluten free spinach and mushroom gravy, then serve it with a side of sweet potatoes. This is a great meal to fuel your body before or after a work out. It is sure to fill you up and keep you going, while keeping your weight managed.
Adding Sweet Potatoes to Your Diet:
Sweet potatoes fall under the starch category. So, are sweet potatoes something you should include in your daily diet? Yes! Sweet potatoes are from the complex carbohydrate category. Of all carbs, complex carbs are best for a healthy diet. Some benefits of complex carbs are that they slow down the absorption of sugars. This assists in removing cholesterol. It also slows down digestion. When digestion is slowed this results in keeping you full longer. Which in turn reduces the amount of food that you eat. Complex carbohydrates are also great to eat before and after high intensity work outs. With all this in mind, sweet potatoes are a great addition to any healthy diet. However, with any carbs, portion control is important if eating them often. A typical serving of sweet potatoes is about a half a cup in our Optimized Lifestyle meals.
