Tired of the same old chicken breast as your go-to diet food? Try this pork tenderloin recipe
As a UEFP client, you know that your protein is important. You squat, deadlift, sprint, and do a bunch of other crazy things to your body that causes plenty of damage to those muscles of yours. You can begin to repair your body with protein; so that’s why we’re setting you up with this extremely easy pork tenderloin recipe.
How simple is the recipe? All you really need is a pound or two of pork tenderloin along with several spices. You’ll basically create your own BBQ rub to spread on the pork; feel free to customize the rub if you’d like by adding or removing spices. I will tell you from personal experience that the rub gives the pork a nice kick; in fact, you can use it on ribs, roasts, and briskets as well.
What you do with the pork is up to you. If you’re low carbing you can combine the pork with some BBQ sauce and veggies. You can also stuff it in a low carb pita and make a nice sandwich (low fat mayo, some spinach and tomatoes will make a tasty treat). Feel free to use it in a salad as well. Those who are eating carbs can enjoy the pork with some rice or gluten free pasta.
