Grilled Pork Wraps~Chef Valentine

Since my health issues, I have been having trouble with my weight.

Weight Watchers has been my life-saver.

I have gained a few pounds, but the program is helping me

stay in a safe zone, while I take meds that are saving my life.

Last Sunday, I made


It is a wonderful recipe from my new

Weight Watchers Cookbook.

Larry picked out the recipe and it was superb.

6 Smart points per serving


261 calories per serving.

The flavor is amazing, we cannot wait to make it again.



3 Tablespoons lime juice

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

3/4 teaspoon salt

 3/4 pound pork tenderloin trimmed and cut into 1/2 thick slices

2 cups packaged cole slaw

1/2 cup diced pineapple

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

1 green onion sliced

4 large wheat tortillas


Combine 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1 teaspoon oil, oregano, garlic powder, cumin and 1/2 teaspoon salt in zip loc bag.

Stir to mix well. Add pork and close bag, turn about 5 times to coat well.

Put into fridge.

Let marinate, over-night or 2 hours.

Combine coleslaw mix, pineapple, cilantro, scallion, remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice and remaining 1 tablespoon oil

and salt in bowl. Mix well, set aside.

Spray pan with Pan and place on medium heat.

Place pork in pan and brush with remaining marinade.

Cook pork about 5 min each side depending on size.

Let rest for 3 min.

Divide pork evenly between tortillas

top with 1/2 cup slaw.


I put my slaw on first…

I cannot tell you how wonderful this taste profile is.

 261 calories per wrap!

and 6 Smart points!

Pork Wraps is on next weeks menu, with a green salad.


I am missing weigh-in today….have an appointment,

but this afternoon,  I hope to get a 3 mile walk in.

Healthy, healthy, healthy.

Till next time.


San Antonio, Weight Watchers and Buddha


My Larry came home from San Antonio.

I must say, I was happy to see him come in the door

and other news,

I was up two pounds at my Weight Watcher meeting yesterday.

To be honest, the past two weeks have been strange


I am relieved that I had not gained 5 pounds.

Celeste, the Weight Watcher group leader is awesome.

She is honest and funny.

She can turn a negative into a positive in one second


I feel the support I need from the group.

Who needs Oprah when we have Celeste?


even though I am on 3 meds that make me GAIN weight,

{and it is driving me crazy to say the least}

 I have my Fit Bit on  and I am focused.

Enablers back off, I am on a mission of health,

not to mention that I have promised myself

a new wardrobe of sundresses for this summer if I succeed.

This is a wonderful post, just before Valentines day, right?



There are THREE days till Valentine’s Day.
