Pita Crusted Pork Loin

Making the crust out of pita bread instead of standard bread crumbs cuts down on the carbs and is lower glycemic (sugar) index. I use 1 whole wheat pita pocket blended into crumbs, 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. Dip pork pieces into whole wheat flour, then coat with beaten egg whites and finally coat with pita mixture. Cook over med- high heat in about 2 TB olive oil until golden on both sides. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes depending upon thickness of cuts.
Pita Pork- 3 blocks
3 oz pork loin (3 oz protein/ 1/4 block carbs)
1 1/2 cups green beans (1 block carbs)
2 cups mixed green salad (2 blocks carbs/ 3 blocks fat)
