Food for Thought; Slow Cooked Pork and Apple

So we’ve put on a little bit of weight since Baby Boy arrived.  Well in my case that’s not strictly true as I lost most of my pregnancy weight but im carrying a fair few extra pounds. 

The statement that shocked the husband into action was bumping into an ex-colleague he hasn’t seen since marathon training who told him at first glance he didn’t think it could be him as he looked heavier.

It’s a curse we both succumb too, our weight fluctuates like crazy if we don’t watch what we eat and exercise.  Coupled with bedtime not quite gelling yet I decided to try a healthy recipe in the slow cooker so once the boys were asleep I could literally dish up, eat then go to bed! Slow cooked pork and apple sounded a delicious combination, and while cooking smelt a little like apple strudel!
