Welcome to the ongoing saga of my family and our attempts to eat right, exercise, lose weight and still enjoy life, while also managing the care and treatment of injuries, chronic conditions, and cancer follow-up. Convinced that a healthy lifestyle and reasonable fitness level is attainable by even the most committed of workaholics, couch potatoes, and those with health issues, join us as we explore food and wellness choices, try to put new habits in place, and hold each other accountable along the way. Healthy food can taste delicious and wellness practices need not be burdensome. At least, that is our hope, especially as we share resources with others who are working to be well.

Pork with White Wine

My daughter is such the food adventurer, but she tends to favor dishes with a bit more fat and calories than I can tolerate while trying to lose weight.  Thankfully, at my suggestion, she has been experimenting with some healthier fare, the latest on Monday:  pork tenderloin in mushroom sauce.  Miss Katherine served this with summer slaw and steamed asparagus, accompanied by a wonderfully smooth white wine from South Africa --- Diemersdal Unwooded Chardonnay 2011:
[This is] a concentrated wine with fresh fruit aromas.  The nose is elegant, with the richness of the fruit enhanced by apple and sweet melon aromas.  Nuance of limes on the palate combine to offer you a delicious, flavourful wine with a creamy taste and lingering aftertaste.
I highly recommend both the pork tenderloin and the wine.  Each has a distinct flavor that is at once tangy and velvety.  Very tasty.
