Lower Cal Pork Roast:

You will need: Small Pork Roast,  8-10 small red potatoes, small bag of baby carrots, small container of fresh whole mushrooms, 2 apples (one granny smith, one red del), 1.5 cups of liquid (equal parts white wine, apple juice, low sod chicken broth), whole wheat flour (2-3 table spoons), just enough cooking oil to lightly glaze the pan, season to taste(we used fresh ground pepper, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, 3 bay leaves, and one cinnamon stick.)

Lightly Glaze Pan to Med-High
Add Pork Roast and Lightly Brown and season
Remove Meat, deglaze pan
Add in Flour and a little bit of the liquid mixture
Allow mixture to brown adding the rest liquid mixture slowly
Let thicken (You may add corn starch if you like your gravy thicker)

Place The Roast in the Crock Pot, then place all the veggies etc. except the apples, then pour gravy.   Set the Crock-Pot for 8 hours.  About 2-3hours before serving add in the apple slices.
