Default Awesome dinner!

I am new to IP (1.5 weeks in). I hate vegatables but have been doing this diet thing long enough to know it can't be a diet it has to be a lifestyle change - hence - the IP diet. Fiigured it would force me to like veggies. Anyway, tonight I fixed 2 recipes I found on the IP forum and they were both DELICIOUS. I made a Pork Loin Stir-fry and Kale Chips.

Here are the recipes (hope the original posters don't mind):

KALE CHIPS[
Cover cookie sheet with foil and spray with Pam; drizzle with olive oil & season. 275 for 25 minutes.


Pork Loin Stirfry
Ingredients
5 oz pork loin, cut in thin strips or small cubes
1 small green pepper sliced thin
2 or 3 large mushrooms sliced thin
~1c broccoli florets
~4c cauliflower
olive oil
sesame oil
rice vinegar
zero carb soy sauce
1/3 c water
zero msg seasoning of your choice
IP salt and fresh cracked pepper

Shred the cauliflower to a rice-like consistency. I used a grater blade in my processor. Cover in a bowl with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 5-6 minutes. This makes it softer. Then put it in a wok over high heat with just a dash of olive and sesame oils, soy sauce, and seasoning (I use Mrs. Dash). Stir often and fry until some of it starts browning. Set aside on a serving plate and cover.

Get the wok really hot again. Add about 1tb of olive oil and 1tsp sesame oil. Wait just a few seconds and add the pork. Once it's browned well on all sides and add the vinegar, soy sauce, and water to deglaze the pan. Stir it up and add the peppers, mushrooms, and broccoli. Season to taste with s&p and seasoning. Keep stir frying until the pork is done. Careful not to over cook the veggies. They should just get bright green. Serve on top of the cauliflower.
