Wednesday’s Helping: Making this adobo healthy

Go all out with healthy selections

We chose to add spinach leaves since they carry and absorb the adobo flavors so well.  What else do we suggest?  Chopped summer or yellow squash adds some semisweet contrast to the pungent soy paste.  Just make sure to cut the squash into bite-sized pieces.  We also recommend chopped carrots, sliced zucchini, or even diced bell peppers.  Lighten up the calorie count by selecting leaner cuts of pork, such as pork loin or pork tenderloin.  Of course, substituting the pork in this dish for chicken parts or chicken breast is also a healthier choice.
