Have you joined us on the Good & Good For You Challenge?  The National Pork Board wants everyone to make some healthy goals and challenges, and then they want to help you meet them.  We are on board in our house and are aiming to make a number of changes to our meals.  The biggest being portion sizes and healthy food choices.

Did you know that on average today’s pork cuts have 16% less fat than 21 years ago?  That’s my random fact I learned this week.  Actually pork is great lean protein choice.

This week Publix has Bone-in pork roasts on sale (through 2/15 in some areas).  There are a number of things you can do with a pork roast that are healthy and delicious.

Here are some of my favorite ideas from the Pork website:

Pork Roast with Sweet Potatoes, Pears and Rosemary
Orange-Glazed Pork Roast
Cajun Pork Roast

Cinnamon Pork Roast
Cranberry-Onion Pork Roast
Garlic-Herb Roast Pork

We had a hard time deciding what to make.  My husband loves anything with cranberries, but I pushed him to try something new.  So we ended up making the Pork with Pears and Sweet Potatoes.  I made one mistake and bought the wrong kind of pears (our Publix didn’t have Bosc pears) if you have to substitute you want a firmer pear so that it doesn’t turn to mush.

I also learned the hard way that bone in roasts take a lot longer to cook.  We ended up having to put the kids in bed and ate dinner around 10 that night…  It was delicious though!
