Are you a cheater? I’m not referring to cheating on a test or significant other. This is referring to diet and the reason you are not losing weight. Do you check in to your weekly or monthly weight loss session with the perfect food diary. Honestly, if you are consuming exactly what you have recorded then you should lose weight. Perhaps you snuck a few cookies or a piece of pizza when you swear to all that you’ve been on a strict diet. And let’s not forget those few beers or glasses of wine at the end of the day that you may have guzzled but refuse to acknowledge, even to yourself! These are just some of the ways we can tell ourselves and others that we are on a more straight and narrow path with our health goals than we actually are! Though in this case, the person we are really cheating is ourselves!
It’s that time year and autumn is officially here. Apples are in full season by the bushels and they are a great addition to any pork dish. And, I love using the crockpot. It takes less than 5 minutes to prep and your meal is ready when you get home from work or when you are finished with your daily chores. I have to admit this recipe I threw together was absolutely delish!!!

- 4 Boneless loin pork chops
