Lemon-Garlic Pork

Dinner really does not need to be complicated. Don’t we all have more than enough to do already? I paired these lemon-garlic pork chops with the spinach and red pepper sauté that I recently posted and it was a hit with the family!! 

Garlic has so many health benefits, I’m sure you too could think of a few yourself. The health benefits of garlic were realized centuries ago by mankind. It is very effective when eaten raw- either crushed or chopped. As little as one clove of garlic per day may bring a vast improvement in your overall health. 2 to 3 cloves could prevent an attack of the common cold. Some of the health benefits are as follows – boosts digestion, controls diabetes, lowers cholesterol levels, reduced hypertension, eye care, relieves ear aches, etc. You can find more info about its benefits here.
