Summer is here, and if you’re working on that coveted beach body, then Pork can be your secret weapon for achieving your health goals, while still indulging in delicious, mouth-watering meals.
A nutrient-rich protein
Apart from its versatility in the kitchen, good quality Pork like that from LYNCA MEATS, also offers a wide range of nutrients essential for your summer body. It’s a fantastic source of protein, which helps in muscle repair and growth, keeping you strong and fit. Brent Fairlie, CEO of LYNCA MEATS elaborates: “Pork is also rich in vitamins like B6, B12, and niacin, which support your metabolism and overall wellbeing. Iron, zinc, and selenium are other nutrients found in Pork that play crucial roles in keeping you energised and healthy throughout the summer.” He points out the myriad ways you can enjoy Pork, while staying on track with your health and fitness regimen.
Lean and mean: Pork fillet
Let’s kick things off with the leanest cut in the Pork family – the PORK FILLET. If you’re keeping a close eye on your calorie intake, this tender cut is your best friend. It’s a powerhouse of protein and essential nutrients, making it an ideal choice for those summer body gains. Grill it, roast it, or slice it thinly for stir-fries, and you’ll have a delicious, protein-packed dish that will leave you satisfied, without the guilt.

The grill master’s paradise
Summer and braaiing are a match made in heaven. Pork is the star of the braai – it is affordable, super tasty, and it knows how to shine. “Marinate some PORK CHOPS or TENDERLOIN in your favourite sauce, fire up the braai, and watch the magic happen. The Smokey, charred flavours that infuse the Pork create a mouth-watering experience you won’t soon forget,” says Brent. Super tasty, full of protein, and surprisingly lean – Pork provides a fantastic way to keep your summer body goals in check.
Roast Pork: a crowd-pleaser
Imagine this – a beautiful Sunday roast with succulent Pork at the centre of it all. PORK ROASTS are not only impressive for gatherings, but they also offer a leaner alternative to beef or lamb. Brent says it is really easy to prepare: “Season your PORK ROAST with herbs and spices, pop it in the oven, and let the aromatic goodness fill your kitchen. You can have a hearty show-stopping meal that takes no time to prepare, and is really wholesome and nutritious.”

Low and slow Pork
For those days when you have time to spare, nothing beats the allure of SLOW-COOKED PORK. Whether it’s pulled Pork, carnitas, or a classic stew, the slow-cooking method turns Pork into a melt-in-your-mouth delight. And guess what? Slow-cooked Pork is incredibly versatile, making it perfect for sandwiches, tacos, or even a hearty summer salad. Plus, it’s an excellent way to make the most of your crockpot, while you relax and soak up the sun. Brent notes: “The best cut of pork for pulling is PORK SHOULDER – it contains the ideal amount of fat, resulting in delicate, melt-in-your-mouth meat, but you must cook it slowly to allow the protein to break down correctly.”
