Proper pork preparation is key!

Overcooked pork may contain carcinogenic substances. Avoid pieces of pork that appear overly blackened or charred.

On the flip side, undercooked pork can harbor parasites. The USDA recommends your pork have an internal temperature of at least 145 degrees with a 3-minute rest time.

Signs of a potential sensitivity

  • Bloating
  • Cramps and Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Mild fever
  • Hives
  • Sneezing or Runny Nose

Endless options:

Pork can be as simple or as fancy as you want!

In a rush - You can pop a pork chop in your air fryer and it is ready to eat in less than 10 minutes.

Dress it up - Try baking a pork tenderloin with some rosemary and a few cloves of garlic! This is the leanest cut of pork and is great for meal prep leftovers.

Easy leftovers - Leftovers can be served with a salad or tossed in steamed veggies and liquid aminos for a quick stir fry!

It's best to avoid sliced deli ham because of its high sodium and preservatives.
