How To Make Parmesan Pork Chops {F&FF Week 3}

Let’s be honest, sometimes you need a meal and you have no time for nonsense even if you are in Week #3 of a  Fit & Fab Fall Challenge.  I’m not gonna lie, knowing how to make Parmesan pork chops could be a lifesaver since this week has been a little tough as Superman brought some funky germs home from work and Princess caught whatever he had.   I even felt pretty puny myself for a couple days but our symptoms were minimal due to our home remedies and supplements.

Nonetheless, I have kept meals very simple and quick this week so I could take care of the sick and get extra rest myself.  When Superman stopped at the store to fill a request for the sick one, he randomly picked up a pack of pork chops, saying they were on sale and he kinda wanted some.  😉   I rarely buy pork so I didn’t mind at all.

























I wanted a clean eating recipe that was different and light.  As you probably know, you must be careful with pork chops or they can turn dry and overcooked quickly.  I was in the mood for yumminess that remained healthy.  

Then it hit me…  Parmesan and Garlic.  Mmmmmm

Super-quick, light, and super-easy.  My kind of meal.


We have a winner folks and a new favorite around here.

I roasted some broccoli, pulled out some pre-cooked whole grain rice and called it a meal.  I love it all comes together so easily, it makes me love my life even more.
