Hello everyone, slowly we are getting our bfc groove back. I tried a delicious new recipe from pinterest in my crock pot.This morning I also started re-reading the original bfc and bfc ft...very helpful. I was surprised that there were a lot of things that I had forgot. I'm really committed to doing this thing and getting back on track. This week at work I have been very disciplined and I haven't gotten into the crackers and other carby things that get me off was especially hard to stay out of the goldfish crackers today. I have learned that being good in these things that seem small is what counts for me. Have a wonderful rest of your week :)

Thai-Style Pork Stew
  • 2 pounds boned pork loin, cut into 4 pieces
  • 2 cups (1 x 1/4-inch) julienne-cut red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce    
  • 2 tablespoons rice or white wine vinegar 
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter 
  • 6 cups hot cooked basmati rice
  • 1/2 cup diagonally cut green onions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dry-roasted peanuts
How I adapted it...I was inspired by Jorge's "Sumptuous Pork Stir-Fry" in the original BFC pg. 229. For a sweet and sour sauce I used one part balsamic vinegar, one part low sodium soy sauce, two packets of stevia, and one tsp. ginger instead of teriyaki sauce. And instead of rice I used quinoa, and added broccoli. 


  1. mmm... that looks and sounds tasty! I think I work at the same type place: lots of carbs temptations around all the time. So I feel your are doing great. We can do it :-) and making tasty food like that is great way.

  2. Looks really good. One tip I have for you so you don't mindless eat stuff is to measure out your portions. Never eat out of a package. That will help.
    Have a great day :-)

  3. That looks delicious! I'll have to try that teriyaki substitute that you came up with!

  4. that sounds yummy, and way better than what I did with our pork loin this week. I'll have to try this out on the second half which is in my freezer. Yummy! Always looking for good easy crockpot meals. Have a great weekend!
