Healthy Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Pull up a seat and lets EAT! My mouth waters while looking at this image of my “Healthy Stuffed Pork Tenderloin!” Do you happen to love Thanksgiving and all of its yumminess? Well, my “Healthy Stuffed Pork Tenderloin” reminded me of Thanksgiving just minus all the guilt! It’s such an easy yet flavorful recipe to make with just a few tasty ingredients and BAM you have a flavor explosion in your mouth. The pork tenderloin itself is juicy and tender and the flavors of the sage with the butternut squash plus the fruits make a beautiful aroma and sweet taste with every bite.

I had a craving for something hearty yet healthy so I decided stuffed pork tenderloin was in order. I ran to whole foods and had the butcher cut my pork tenderloin for me and give me some extra butcher twine from the back (they are usually cool about doing both if you just ask :). I came home, turned on the tunes, popped a bottle of pinot grigio and I was ready to get down and dirty in the kitchen. I diced and cooked my veggies, herbs, and fruits. Then I spread everything inside the pork tenderloin and wrapped it up nice and tight. I gave her a little sear on both sides and finished off in the oven and TA-DA! It was time to EAT! And just like that you have a “Healthy Stuffed Pork Tenderloin” screaming EAT ME!
