One of my big goals for the New Year is to really focus on our food. Lately I have been concerned about the junk that our family has been putting in our mouths. So over the last several months I have really been focusing on cooking with plain ingredients, and not mixes or pre-made anything. Mainly looking to get rid of artificial preservatives that we hear so much about. And we have been loving the results with the delicious recipes. Problem is, is that many of the recipes I make take so much extra time, ingredients, and preparation! I’m ready for something easy.
I was recently asked to try out one of the recipes from the new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® page on Walmart.com, where they have 5 simple recipes shown. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that there are 0% artificial ingredients in I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Yay!
After checking out the recipes, I decided to go with the Orange Sage Pork Chops. 1, because I love pork chops – and 2, because oranges are totally in season right now! And I *LOVE* the results. In fact, writing this post makes me wish I had another pack of pork chops around – so I could have them again tonight! They were so simple, too!
I had oranges and pork chops already, so I just needed some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spread and some fresh sage. I’ve never cooked anything with sage in it, so I wasn’t sure that I would love it, but I’m so glad that I tried, because it was amazing!
I spent a few minutes preparing all of my ingredients. I try to do this as much as possible because mid-meal when I’m trying to prep I usually end up burning something. I’m really, REALLY good at burning stuff. The Chops cooked up super easily and quickly, and then it just took another minute to get the sauce ready.
100% Taste. 0% Artificial Preservatives
