  1. Not tried anything yet , i need to find recipes for putting carbs proteins etc together to combine my whole meal , i am new and haven’t a clue where to start , and do those books get sent to me or are they on line as you do not have my address

  2. Hi, llpessentialoils. Pork isn’t necessarily more unhealthy than any other meat, rather it depends how the animals were raised – all-natural feed (i.e., organic pastured), minimal stress, and no unnecessary medications.

  3. Hi, sjksomerville. Just choose something similar as a placesaver as you build your menus in the Menu Planner, and make the swap at meal prep time. This particular recipe is quite simple because it only counts for protein – so select pork loin, and use this as the recipe.
