High Protein Pork Recipe

Pork is a really affordable cut of meat and if you buy it from your local butcher it will be way tastier than the meat you get in the supermarket with a lower carbon footprint.

Boosting your protein intake and eating more vegetables are great ways to keep yourself feeling fuller for linger which is by far the simplest weight loss ‘hack’ I can give to you.

If you’re looking to eat more because you want to gain muscle or fuel a lot of activity then you can  and an extra wrap or two to increase the carbohydrates to provide more instant energy or add some grated cheese to boost the fat content. Both will increase the overall calories.

Remember, when we eat more to boost performance, protein targets can actually be slightly lower than for fat loss.
