Sorry I’ve been bringing you guys a lot of food porn lately, but I just can’t help it.
Cooking is a bit of a recent obsession of mine and I’ve been trying to make the most delicious foods that I can make that will fit into my macronutrient requirements.
Here is a recipe for my rest day where I should be eating high protein, moderate fat, and low carbs: Honey Mustard Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin
- 2/3 cup honey
- 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon chile powder
- 2 pounds pork tenderloin
- 6 thick strips of apple wood smoked bacon
- Mix the honey, Dijon mustard, and chile powder in a mixing bowl.
- Dump marinade, pork tenderloin, and bacon strips into a ziplock bag. Seal and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
- When ready for cooking, put tenderloin into a roasting pan. Wrap bacon strips around tenderloin (fancy!). Then pour the remaining marinade over the meat.
- Bake in oven at 450F for 25-30 minutes depending on thickness of tenderloin.
- Take out of oven, let stand for 5-10 minutes before carving.
A lot of the honey mustard marinade and bacon fat drips to the bottom of the pan. Because of that only some of the carbs and fats remain. This recipe serves 3 with each serving containing the following macronutrients:
