Mouthwatering Stewed Pork and Okra

Okra sometimes referred to as "lady's finger," comes in green and red. Both varieties taste the same. It's frequently used in Southern American cuisine and is a staple in gumbo. Some people find it unappealing due to its slimy texture. But, with this recipe, you won't even notice that. It actually helps thicken the sauce. Okra is rich in nutrients and has antioxidant properties. So, it's worth trying.

Who doesn't love having a good Caesar salad! However, having Caesar salad in restaurants is never a healthy choice. As, it is always loaded with excess fats and calories. I have prepared an entirely healthy homemade Caesar salad in a tortilla bowl that rivals that of any restaurant.

Toss with the crisp lettuce, drizzle with the guilt-free flavorful dressing and finally top with croutons and cheese for the perfect main course!
