Another easy grain-free dinner…. Baked Apple Pork Chops.
I gave my husband the recipe and he whipped up these beautiful baked pork chops in no time at all. They were amazing honey! Gotta love sharing the kitchen occasionally.
Pork fat has been given a terribly bad name in the last few decades but it is incredibly high in Vitamin D which is vital for children to GROW.
Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorous – which is vital for bone growth. It has been shown to help develop a child’s facial structure and even widen a child’s palate to give them a beautiful smile and straight teeth.
Vitamin D is also reported to be a fantastic regulator of the immune system – keeping away colds, flus and infections and is even implicated to help reduce asthma and arthritis symptoms.
The best pork to buy is free range, organic pork that is grass fed.
