The Whole Hog: Buying a Whole Hog [Series]

We recently started offering cooking classes in Cincinnati to patients that are in treatment for obesity, and eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, and binge eating disorder. During the classes, participants pick up basic cooking tips for preparing “clean” luscious tasting dishes, dressing, marinades, desserts and soups.

In our most recent class we had a great discussion about pork. We talked about everything from the health benefits of pork to how to find a reputable source for purchasing the healthiest pork. This series of blog articles will provide you with all the information we covered in class!
