Dinner & a Smoothie


I was trying to be clever with the title…get it? Dinner & a smoothie, like movie? Anyway, I have two different recipes to post from this week.  One is a a grilled pork chop recipe with roasted celeriac roots and the other is a strawberry shortcake smoothie!

Grilled Turmeric Pork with Roasted Celeriac Root, Apple and Pecans

Celeriac root is a great healthy alternative to potatoes, and can be cooked in much of the same way. They are much lower in calories and carbohydrates but are a rich source of fiber and fill you up! Turmeric is also boasts a lot of health benefits and is a known anti-inflammatory. Using it as a spice is a great way to incorporate it into your diet and in this particular recipe, gives both the pork chops and celeriac root side dish a peppery note that pairs perfectly with the curry and ginger flavors.
