    When you hear the word “pork,” don’t think “fat.” Depending on how you prepare pork, it can be a healthy source of protein that won’t break your budget or put pressure on your belt. A 4-oz. pork chop serves up about 230 calories, which won’t put most people over their calorie budget. It also provides 34 grams of protein — a great way to be sure you’re getting the recommended daily amount of protein for an adult. Baked pork chops are also a good source of B vitamins, and the minerals phosphorus and selenium.

    Serve these pork chops with healthy, nutrient-rich side dishes. Sweet potatoes are a great source for vitamin A and dietary fiber.
