Pork and blue cheese salad

Am I the first person ever to put a pork chop on a salad?

It seems kinda strange at first, but was amazing paired with blue cheese and honey sriracha vinaigrette!

Let’s back up before the salad and start with a full day of eats.

I guess breakfast started out with pork chops, too!

Kyle whipped up this whole egg and egg white scramble from some leftover breakfast potatoes from the weekend. The potatoes also had some chopped up pork chop in it. The eggs were topped with a bit of shredded mozzarella and served with some avocado on the side!

Cantaloupe showed up as a morning snack again.

Along with some blueberry protein muffins and homemade cinnamon peanut butter!

Lunch was the delicious pork and blue cheese salad!

My original intention was a BLT salad for this honey sriracha vinaigrette. But, I was too lazy to make bacon. And I mean, pork and bacon come from the same animal…so I figured it kinda worked. And I was right, because it did.

For this salad, I only used one tablespoon of honey sriracha vinaigrette, which is half a serving. It really is enough dressing for me. Find the recipe for the salad dressing here.

I think the BLT salad will happen again eventually, too!

Afternoon snacks were lots of these… another recipe that I’m not disclosing until the healthy dessert month in September rolls around!

Dinner was an amazing sandwich made from some fresh everything french bread, herb roasted turkey from Costco, mild cheddar cheese, lettuce and avocado.

The bigger the sandwich, the better!
