Time to Re-Think Pork?

Doesn’t that pork chop look yummy?

Personally, I’m a big fan of pork tenderloin, because there’s so much you can do with it.

One of my favorite ways to cook it is roasted in the oven with apples, potatoes, carrots and onions. Recently I made an awesome pork roast with a lovely Mexican flare using a can of petite cut tomatoes with green chilis, sliced onions, garlic, cumin and chili powders.

I’d love to share my pork recipies here with readers, but after reading a piece in Business Week, I’m not too sure about eating pork again. Ever

We all know we’ve got some serious issues with our food system and meat packaging, particularly pork has been a long time concern on many levels including environmental impact.

So, before you eat that next pork chop, you may want to consider this story: The Truth About Pork and How America Feeds Itself.

And after you read the piece, please call Congress and urge them to pass more legislation on food safety, along with raising the minimum wage.
