Paula Young is a firm believer that living well and eating healthy foods go hand in hand. Here is her grocery list for the recipes below, and a video demonstrating how to make your own homemade noodles.

Marinated Pork Loin

Beautifully glazed with a mouth-watering marinade, this Marinated Pork Loin is relatively low in fat but still juicy, flavorful and so tender.

Homemade Noodles

The addition of whole-wheat flour to these buttery Homemade Noodles pumps up the nutrition and fiber of this special side dish. I even make extra batches during the holidays to give as gifts with homemade marinara sauce.

Roasted Veggies

Round out any meal with the natural sweetness of these quick and easy Roasted Veggies. Whole grape tomatoes, onions, peppers, green beans, halved Brussels sprouts and whole cloves of garlic with their papery skins removed also make delicious additions. Toss with chopped fresh herbs and drizzle with balsamic vinegar or shake on grated Parmesan cheese.
