DESCRIPTION:

Beautifully succulent and juicy Pork Fillet Medallions are insane. So so tasty, and they’re completely naked! Served on a bed of sliced Spring Greens brings a lovely contrast, but the pork is brought to life with the rest of this delicious plate. Slightly sweetened by honey, the Apple Sauce acts the perfect compliment to the succulent flavour of Pork. The Baby New Potatoes are buttery with a balance of fluffiness and crunch. Then you have the roasted Fennel – wow, that was a surprise, in a good way. Crispy exterior, and parsnip-like mushiness inside. YUM! 😋.

For a smaller portion, drop to 200g of New Potatoes, 8g of Butter and 200g of Pork. This would save you 273 calories, without compromising on the flavours or nutritional goodness whatsoever.

Cooking Time: 25mins

HEALTH BENEFITS:

  • Quality Pork is high in protein and essential vitamins, minerals, creatine and amino acid good for overall health. Lean pork, when trimmed of visible fat, is nutrient-dense and satisfying. Best to treat pork as a treat as there are more nutritious meats and it’s high in calories.
  • Spring Greens provide you with a useful amount of vitamin C, to support your immune system, and vitamin K, to build bone strength. They contain sulforaphane and indoles that are reported to have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties, which could help protect against heart disease and stroke and other auto immunity issues.
  • Apples are rich in vitamin C, important antioxidants, flavanoids, and dietary fiber. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.
  • Grass-Fed Butter is a great source of healthy-fats that promote optimal health and hormone production. Furthermore, Butter contains only trace amounts of lactose.
  • Raw Honey contains disease-preventing and disease-fighting flavonoids and antioxidants and has been scientifically proven to help with allergies, diabetes, sleep problems, coughs and wound healing. Due to 53% fructose content, limit consumption to avoid spiking insulin.
  • White Potatoes are an excellent source for vitamins C and B6, a good source for fibre and manganese, and have more potassium than bananas. However, Because potatoes maintain one of the highest glycemic index values of any food, they cause blood sugar levels to rapidly rise which in turn cause our blood insulin concentrations to increase. Then of course you get the issues that arise when deep fried in unhealthy oils.
  • Fennel is an excellent source of vitamin C. It is also a very good of dietary fiber, potassium, molybdenum, manganese, copper, phosphorus and folate. In addition, fennel is a good source of calcium, pantothenic acid, magnesium, iron and niacin.
