Looking for something lighter than beef but not quite as lean as chicken to whip up for dinner? Maybe you should take a look at the selection of pork options at the deli counter the next time you make a trip to the grocery store. Although it’s known as “the other white meat,” pork is still technically a red meat despite how pale it appears once you’ve cooked it. That isn’t a bad thing, though! For example, pork is an abundant source of the B-vitamin known as thiamin.
According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, thiamin is essential for boosting our energy (also known as metabolism), which means it helps our bodies with the growth, development, and function of cells. The savory meat is also high in zinc, which helps keep our brains and immune system healthy and strong. And, of course, it’s a great choice for anyone looking to pack on some extra protein in their diet.
