Here’s some recipes as part of your arsenal of food options. Start thinking of adding pork to your dinner list at least once per week. Pork tenderloin is affordable and nutrient dense, as well as very easy to cook.

PORK AND QUINOA SALAD
Plenty of volume, nutrition and leanness combined into a delicious dish. The dish as it appears offers the calories listed, but can easily be modified to reflect more or less on any macro. This recipe contains about 3-4 oz of pork but can be modified as can the carb totals by changing the amount of quinoa you add to the salad. Dressing can also increase or decrease the fat content and calories.
