How Kansas Consumers Can Get Coupons Off Pork
If you live in Kansas and you like pork and coupons, I recommend signing up for the Kansas Pork Associations newsletter. Since signing up, I have not been inundated with pork spam but do receive occasional emails with coupons off specific cuts of Kansas pork. You do not see a lot of coupons off fresh meat so I recommend taking advantage of these offers. (http://www.kspork.org/coupons#.UKUGsMXAeQJ).
Growing up on a farm, I am partial to pork. My Dad called hogs "mortgage makers" because you could take a hog from birth to butcher weight in about 6 months. In contrast, it takes beef cattle about two years to mature.
Here's another reason to like pork: it's diet food. Pork is high in protein and low in carbs. Pork has about 140 calories in every 4 ounces, compared to beefs 200 calories. Pork has 4.5 grams of fat, compared to beefs approximately 11 grams.
Also, pork is usually a little less expensive than beef. Adding pork dishes to your menu can help reduce your grocery bill.
I hope to post some great, inexpensive pork recipes soon! In the mean time, head over to the Kansas Pork Associations website and check out some of their great recipes at www.kspork.org.
