Recipes: Healthy Pork for Your Fork

Time to pork out!

Yep, you heard me right.

Pork is one of those foods that people on diets hate with passion. Why eat pork when chicken and turkey—well-known “healthy” meats—are available?

I want you to know that there IS a healthy way to eat pork. If you cut it lean and serve it with nutritious sides, you’ll be doing your body more good than harm.

Today’s recipe is pork chops. You’re gonna love our take on this classic meal—it’s complete with apples, onions, cinnamon, and even almonds!
