I was really excited to make this Garlic Rosemary Pork Loin with Creamed Spinach from Atkins new lifestyle book “Atkins: Eat Right, Not Less.”  I have been thrilled with every recipe from the book and this one was no exception.

Before I get to the recipe, I want to share with you why I love the new Atkins book so much! It’s not just recipes…It dives deeper into living the low-carb and low-sugar lifestyle that is right for you.

atkins eat right, not less

The first chapter is called “The Hidden Sugar Effect” – featuring foods that you think are healthy that actually turn into sugar when digested.  You don’t see the sugars, but your body does.  I actually mentioned this in my recipe for One Pan Chicken and Veggies.  I love this chapter in the book because it really brings to light how much sugar is hiding in foods we are told are “healthy.”

Something I thought was very interesting is that a chocolate bar has less effect on your blood sugar level compared to 1/4 cup of raisins and a cupcake and a baked potato have the same blood sugar-raising effect as 6.3 teaspoons of sugar!

Not only does the book give a full explanation of how Atkins works (without being boring walls of text), it really gets down to basics for people who are really new to a low carb lifestyle. There are tips, such as how to read a food label, how to shop, prepping for the week – and it provides two weeks of meal plans.

Another part of the book I like is that Atkins has a choice of three lifestyle options: Atkins 20, Atkins 40, or Atkins 100.  Each approach is broken down into who it is right for and provides easy-to-follow steps.

Let’s get to that recipe!

The Garlic Rosemary Pork Loin with Creamed Spinach is on page 254 of the book. It’s a super easy recipe that I know I will be making over and over again. That first bite of pork loin was like a flavor explosion in my mouth!

Ingredients

Pork Loin

  • 1 pound Boneless pork loin
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh rosemary

Creamed Spinach

  • 16 ounces baby spinach or spinach leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Atkins Flour Mix
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup 1/2 cup Basic Bone Broth (page 161) or unsalted chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon Freshly grated nutmeg
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup Grated parmesan cheese

Instructions

For the pork

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.  Place the pork loin, fatty side down, in a small skillet over medium heat.  Cook 4 to 5 minutes to brown the top and render some of the fat.  
  • Coat a 7-by-11-inch baking dish with olive oil spray.  Place the pork loin into the dish.  Combine the mustard, garlic, and rosemary in a small bowl.  Spread the mixture over the pork.
  • Place the baking dish with the pork loin into the oven and cook until an internal meat thermometer reads 145F. About 45 minutes.
  • Remove the pork loin from the pan, onto a cutting board and let rest while you make the creamed spinach.

Creamed Spinach

  • Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the spinach in batches and stir to wilt, cooking each batch 1 to 2 minutes and transferring the wilted spinach to a bowl as you work.   
  • Melt the butter in the same skillet over medium heat.  When the butter is melted, sprinkle in the Atkins Flour Mix and cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring often.
  • Whisk in the cream, broth, nutmeg, and lemon zest; cook 1 minute more, until the mixture forms a thick sauce.  
  • Stir in the reserved spinach and the parmesan , stirring well until smooth and creamy.
