FOOD AS MEDICINE
Pasture-raised pork is an excellent source of B vitamins and is high in anti-inflammatory, heart healthy and cancer-fighting omega 3 fatty acids as well as CLAs. Pork is also an excellent source of the amino acid tryptophan, which we usually associate with our Thanksgiving turkey, which the body uses as a precursor to serotonin. When choosing meats like prosciutto look for uncured with no added nitrates or nitrites (ingredients should be just pork and salt!) form a pasture-raised source. These are a great garnish for soups or salads or a keto-friendly addition to your cheese plate!
3 oz thinly sliced uncured pasture raised prosciutto
Preheat the oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Tear each slice of prosciutto into 2 inch pieces. Spread evenly on the baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 10-15 minutes until crunchy. Remove from oven and transfer to paper towels to cool.
