CARIBBEAN JERK PORK TENDERLOIN `1

Good morning guys!  I don't know if you remember several months ago that I talked about my friend Heidi, the TOTAL BABE behind Body by Heidi. She is the genius who helped me get my eating back on track.  She has the most delicious recipes, and honestly I never thought clean eating could taste so good.  I do not adhere strictly to this plan anymore {I am looking at you Nutter Butter wafer cookies}, but she really did so much to change my diet for the better!  If you want to check out my entire series on her and her recipes, you can find them all here.

yes, that's really her. 

yes, that's really her. 

Today I am excited to show you guys this delicious Caribbean Jerk Pork Tenderloin.  This recipe is so freaking easy to make and that pineapple salsa is EVERYTHING. I know you ladies all have fun tropical vacations coming up, so it is never too early to start eating clean in preparation for your beach bod!
