Here at Tancred you will find all the ranges of food to maintain a healthy diet, and because life would be pretty dull if you couldn’t indulge once in a while, the occasional treat

Meat plays a valuable role in our diet, for example as a source of iron and zinc.

AND Pork gets the thumbs up! It’s an excellent source of protein and essential amino acids. Contrary to popular belief, pork can be incredibly lean – as low as 4% fat. And with its high protein, vitamin and mineral content, it can play a key part in a healthy balanced diet.

Protein is vital for healthy growth and healing, as well as keeping your bones strong, and a pork steak provides about half of your Guideline Daily Amount (about 45g).

Pork combines perfectly with staple foods such as rice, pasta, noodles, bread and potatoes. And don’t forget a big serving of fresh salad or vegetables on the side. To help with your 5-a-day pork also goes really well with fruit – for example sweet and sour pork.                    http://www.lovepork.co.uk/pork-healthy-eating/healthy-eating-faqs/#sthash.6Ub6VJMU.dpuf
