Pork Shoulder Chops with Green Beans and Avocado Mix : LCHF

If you are looking for a quick, easy, tasty LCHF meal then look no further! Take some juicy chipotle-marinated pork shoulder chops and serve with green beans mixed with avocado and some homemade garlic butter, and there you have your low-carb dinner made. Quick and easy! This recipe suggestion is from Anne Aobadia at Diet Doctor site (link below). To serve four this is what you will need:

Serves Four
8g carb per serving

Pork shoulder chops
2 tablespoons mild chipotle paste
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
4 pork shoulder chops

Garlic butter

4¼ oz. / 120 g butter, at room temperature
1 clove garlic
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon paprika powder

Green beans and avocado

2 tablespoons olive oil
2⁄3 lb / 300 g fresh green beans
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 avocados
6 scallions (spring onion)
fresh cilantro (optional)
pepper to taste

If you have the opportunity, and convenience, of grilling the meat in the oven it takes care of itself. However, you can of course fry the chops in a frying pan or on the grill. Please see cooking instructions at Diet Doctor site

Did you know - Avocados

Avocados are full of healthy fats
Over 75% of the fat content in an avocado is great for your heart! In fact, having more of these healthy unsaturated fats is better for your heart than eating low fat!

They're nutrient dense
Avocados are packed with beneficial nutrients to enhance the nutrient quality of your meals.

Avocado boosts your eye health
Avocados contain 81mg of lutein & zeaxanthin, antioxidants known to support eye health as we age.

They have more potassium than a banana!
Bananas are known for their potassium content, but per 100g, the avocado fruit contains 485mg of potassium, that's 127mg more than bananas!

They're super versatile
Known for guacamole, dips, and other savory dishes, yet avocados are appearing more and more in sweet dishes too. Think chocolate mousse, ganache, smoothies and ice cream!

You can make ice cream with avocado!
A brilliant, dairy-free, vegan alternative to store-bought ice cream varieties, simply blend 1/2 an avocado and a squeeze of lime juice with 2 tbsp of maple syrup and 1 cup of your milk of choice. Pour into ice block molds and freeze.

How lovely! I usually just throw the chops in, with potatoes and peppers, sprinkle with an all-purpose spicey thing, and leave it!

Avocado ice cream, that is something I must give a go.
I bought some frozen ones to use in smoothies, they make them very smooth indeed.
