Genghis Grill's Limited Time Only Ingredients

Genghis Grill offers various "limited time only" ingredients on their menu. This season, they're offering the pulled pork. Although I don't eat pork, there are wonderful combinations available to make it a heart healthy bowl. 

I'm always a fan of loading my bowl with veggies. Try cabbage as your base/starch and load with onions, peppers and an uncommon veggie like bok choy. You could even use tortillas as a carb and fill it with the pulled pork, pico, mango peppers and onions, jalapenos, mushrooms and carrots to give it more of a fiesta feel. There's also the signature bowl option, Sweet N Sour Pork. Season the pork with 1 tsp of salt and pepper. Add in the 3G Mix, pineapples, green onions and choose 1 oz of Sweet and Sour as your sauce. Try 1/2 cup of steamed white or brown rice as your starch. This bowl is 614 calories and has about 30g of protein. 

There are various health benefits to eating lean pork. Pork tenderloin and loin chop cuts have less fat than other cuts of pork. They also give you the flavor that you're looking for, but with less calories from fat. 
If you're looking for variety this season and want a break from your normal protein, try the pulled pork! you won't be disappointed!
