Low-cholesterol cooking is as easy as it is healthy for your heart. There's no need to skimp in the flavor department, just stick to tried-and-true low-fat methods! Our suggestions? Try steaming vegetables with lots of flavorful garlic, citrus favorites and fresh herbs, or grilling proteins so the fat drips away (grill pans work WONDERS!).
Lastly, keep your eyes open for new ways to make nutritious meals pop – if you can’t think of anything right now, these lean honey-glazed pork skewers are a Food Republic classic. Featuring sweet chunks of pineapple and juicy grape tomatoes (with no added fat at all!), your tastebuds (and your heart!) will thank you!
1. Soak 8 wooden skewers in water for at least 10 minutes.
2. Cook the rice according to the package directions. Just before serving, fold in the cilantro.
3. Meanwhile, heat broiler. Thread the pork, pineapple, onion, and tomatoes onto the skewers. Season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
4. Place the skewers on a foil-lined baking sheet and broil, turning once and brushing occasionally with the honey, until browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
5. Serve with the rice.
