Sauteed Pork Chops and Kale



I'm not sure if you have noticed, but lately my recipes have become much simpler.  I am trying hard to lose a little weight before my sister's wedding.  So far, by giving up my beloved carbs, I have lost close to 10 pounds.  I love them way too much to give them up for good but  this diet has taught me how to moderate better.  I thought I had moderation under control before but I am definitely learning to be better and more in control (not at the mercy of a freshly baked loaf of French bread.) Also, I have noticed that I feel a lot better.  I had a tendency to get stomach aches after bigger meals and I am thinking it may be related to the food I was eating and not necessarily the amount I was eating.  It turns out this diet is an interesting study into my health and wellness - who would have thunk?  
So without further ado I give you another simple recipe (and yes - more kale.)  A lightly seasoned and sauteed pork chop with some easy to make kale.  Another bonus - it is all made in the same pot - I love a one pot meal (Im a lazy cleaner upper.) And I would like to add simple is both beautiful and delicious!....Enjoy!


recipe from Country Living
Ingredients:
2 large bunches of Kale, chopped
Olive Oil
4 Pork Loin Chops
3  Garlic Cloves, finely chopped
1 Lemon, juiced
 Salt
 Pepper


Directions:

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat enough oil to coat bottom of pan. Season both sides of the pork with salt and pepper. Brown the chops until cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with foil to keep warm.
Add 1 more tablespoon of olive oil to your skillet. Saute garlic until golden, about 1 minute. Add kale and sauté until tender, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
