Clean Eating Spinach and Pulled Pork

My quest for eating clean and tasty food has gone answered with these two easy dishes! We ate them together, although the pulled pork was more Southern and the spinach was more Asian. Anyways... they were great AND I would make these two recipes again (although probably not together next time!).

My family and I just returned from vacation so I'm catching up on the Blog! We have family in town to celebrate our son, Palmer's 1st Birthday, so I look forward to sharing our party theme with you later this week!

Clean Spinach with Sesame and Garlic


- 1 lb. spinach
- 3 tbsp. sesame oil
- 1 tbsp. minced garlic
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tbsp. soy sauce
- salt to taste
- 1 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds

1. Place one tbsp. of sesame oil to a frying pan on medium heat. Add the sesame seeds and allow to toast for a few minutes, set aside.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and allow spinach to cook down until wilted. Serve immediately!
