Some misunderstand that fitness fanatics would not eat pork, because pork is high in calories and fat, and low in protein. The fact is, however, that pork can be an ideal food for athletes and people trying to meet their own fitness goals. In this article, Channel 823 will teach you how to select the perfect pork cuts and carve the meat. You can try out our recipe for braised pork fillet with tomato and onion!
Many people lose weight and keep fit by serving themselves boiled chicken breasts for all their meals, which takes all the fun out of eating. It is perfectly understandable that people who aim to lose weight try to avoid portions of meat with higher fat content, such as pork belly and pork neck, or processed foods such as sausages and smoked meats.
Along those lines, here’s a tip: pork fillet (also commonly called pork tenderloin) is a great choice of cut for athletes and fitness enthusiasts. The fillet is located between a pig’s abdomen and back and comprises muscles that are used for posture rather than movement, giving the meat a soft and tender texture. Per 100 grams of fillet, there are about 125 calories and 26.8 grams of protein, but only 1.8 grams of fat. Apart from this, pork fillet is also rich in vitamin B complex, such as nicotinic acid and folic acid, which is good for stress and fatigue relief, and the iron in pork is good for alleviating anaemia. Pork fillet can be cooked in a lot of ways, including cutting it into slices or shredding it for different preparation methods such as blanching, stir frying and baking. The flavour is also very versatile, making it easy to pair with different foods. If you want to control your weight, give it a try!
To make a delicious dish, it is important to know how to select the perfect cut of pork. Channel 823 takes you to Tai Yuen Market in Tai Po to learn from pork stall dealer Ah Fu how to select quality pork. He also recommends the most delicious portions of a pig and offers advice on how to cut it for the tastiest result.
During the holiday season, it seems like there’s one festive party after another. To avoid meal monotony, it's good to mix things up a bit – for example with a sweet and sour appetizer! In addition to the nutritional benefits of pork fillet, tomatoes also contain multiple vitamins and minerals, which are helpful for digestion and improve appetite, with anti-ageing and skin care effects. Onions, on the other hand, help improve intestinal digestion and kill harmful bacteria, as well as boost cell vitality. Both tomatoes and onions are good for metabolism. When it’s time to think up a home-made healthy dish in between your holiday parties, try this recipe!
