Is Pork a part of your New Year's Resolutions?

As a pig farmer, we eat a lot of pork around our house and I'm often asked many questions regarding pork.  One question I seem to get a lot is about the nutritional content of pork.  "Pork.  The Other White Meat." really did a lot to get people thinking about pork in their diets.

Although pork really isn't a white meat, a recent analysis by the United States Department of Agriculture found that pork tenderloin contains the same amount of fat and slightly less calories than the same serving of skinless chicken breast.

Thanks to Pork.  Be Inspired for the graphic

That to me is exciting news because pork can be an integral part of the New Year's resolutions that so many of us made.  And as a pig farmer having people eat pork is what it is all about.  So be sure to check out the pork section the next time you are at the grocery store and see how you can incorporate some yummy, nutritious pork into your meal plans.

P.S.  Pork tenderloin is the innermost part of the pork loin and pork chops come from the pork loin.
