I really don't like eating salads. There, I said it. I am not one of those woman who love veggies. I mean, I do like veggies, just not as an entire meal. But I force myself to eat it...
|that's me, in my office, not happy|
I have been trying to find ways to eat more veggies... or not eat all veggies but still eat healthy. Anyway, I have been using my slow cooker a ton lately and have been trying to eat more pork. Yes, the other white meat. It's relatively good for you (as compared to red meat at least) and pretty tasty. Even made homemade Cuban sandwiches which were crazy good! But that recipe will have to wait for another time.
Last week I made pulled pork with baked beans and homemade cornbread. Now, I know that you're thinking this isn't healthy. But I was surprised that it was all that bad for you. Walden Farms makes a BBQ sauce that is 0 calories and 0 fat. Yes, it's true. Now, as someone who prides herself on knowing good BBQ, I would never eat this on ribs or actually put it on Pulled Pork after it's cooked. You need sugar and fat to make it tasty. But, I used this sauce just to cook the pork in, so I didn't really care if it was tasty.
So, enough about BBQ sauce. Let's get to the recipe.
1.5 lb pork shoulder, bone in
1 bottle of BBQ sauce (I used 0 cal/0 fat, but use whatever you like!)
1/2 jar of McCormick Grill Pork Rub
1/2 white onion, minced
Salt & Pepper
Make sure the pork is covered with the rub (you can let it marinate/sit in the rub, if you have time) and also covered in sauce. Cook low 8 hrs.

I added some baked beans and cornbread. The cornbread was a splurge. But if you only have a slice or two, it's not that bad. I used Jiffy Cornmeal mix (an entire box) and made a sheet. The beans were Bush's, and while high in carbs, they are also high in protein. Bang for your buck! Below is the approximate* nutrition info.
