Healthy Pork Chop Recipes
Find healthy, delicious pork chop recipes including fried, grilled and breaded pork chops. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Bone-In Pork Chops with Grilled Peaches and Arugula
This easy grilling recipe sears both the pork and the peaches on the grill. When peaches are not in season, you can make this recipe with pears or apples instead…….

Sauteed Pork Chops with Apples
The Sugar and Spice Rub makes extra. So another time, use it to season pork tenderloin or lean burgers before broiling or grilling………..

Healthy Oven-Fried Pork Chops
These whole-wheat panko breadcrumb-coated pork chops get just as crispy as fried chops, but they’re healthier. Oven-frying saves you fat and calories while producing chops that are crispy on the outside, yet juicy inside. Serve with steamed broccoli and baked sweet potato for a satisfying weeknight dinner……….

Apple buying……

When buying apples look for apples that where the skin is firm and smooth, freckled areas are okay. Apples bruise easily, so handle them gently.
