    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.

    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.
