Sweet Tips on Keeping Your Holiday Eating in Check

Pork Rind TostadasBefore you overindulge by “trying” all the holiday candy and cookies at the office (hey, you need to make sure your coworkers did a good job baking), you may want to prepare by reducing your calorie intake now. Have no fear, before you loosen your belt, we have the solution to you next cookie-fest.

1. Ditch Added Sugar – foods like candy, soda and baked goods that contain lots of added sugars tend to be low in the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. Give up the candy now, so you’ll be able to enjoy the holidays nearly guilt-free.

2. Protein-Rich Pork Rind Breakfast – by eating pork rinds for breakfast, you’ll increase protein intake in the morning, which helps you avoid unhealthy snacking and improve appetite control throughout the day. May we suggest Southern Recipe Original Pork Rinds as the new Breakfast of Champions?

3. Be A Smart Shopper – creating a shopping list and sticking to it is a great way to avoid buying unhealthy foods impulsively and leads to healthier eating as well as weight loss. Better yet, skip the chip impulse and pick up Southern Recipe Salt & Vinegar rinds. Pork rinds have half the fat of chips and more protein (see point #2).

4. Cut Back on Carbs – well, our pork rinds have zero carbs, so that’s an easy one. See what you can make with them on our recipe page!

Give Thanks for These Recipes

Fast approaching is one of the most overindulgent holidays of the year … no, we’re not talking about Pork Rind Appreciation Day (although, we do love winning pork rinds). We’re talkin’ about Thanksgiving Day.

Hey, we’re all for unbuckling the belt after a more-than-generous dinner, but now it’s time to bring your pork rind roots into the meal with a twist on some classics.

Breakfast Pork Rind Casserole – let’s start out with a hardy breakfast. After all, we’ll start with eggs and end with the bird.

Cornbread Pork Rind Stuffing – spice up the traditional stuffing by adding crushed pork rinds into the breading mix at a ratio of 50/50.

Macaroni and Cheese – pork rinds add a bacon flavor without all that greasy mess

Don’t Mock the Guac

pork rinds and guacamoleJust like the Incredible Hulk, the mighty avocado is a softy inside. This monster of fruit – that’s right we said fruit – is one superfood. When it comes to benefits: high potassium (helps in maintaining blood pressure) and Vitamin B5 (helps convert the food you eat into energy), Southern Recipe pork rinds pair well because of our high protein and low carbs. You could say we’re a couple of mean, green power snack foods.

And in honor of National Guacamole Day, we would like to make it easy to get your avocado on with this rind dippin’ guacamole recipe.

This Recipe Is “Nacho” Bad

Pork Rind NachosInternational Day of the Nacho has nothing to do with Cinco de Mayo so why are we talkin’ about it? Well, nachos are probably our single favorite snack in the world (besides pork rinds, of course).  It’s probably why there’s an International Day of the Nacho on October 21.  While you may think of nachos as having sprung from that special day in May, the truth is that nachos are a 20th-century dish. It turns out, the golden nacho cheese wasn’t even invented until the 1970’s! Looking for a special way to celebrate? We have just the right nacho recipe to share today (or any day) – especially when you use Southern Recipe Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds in place of the 3 corner chip.

Pork Rinds in Recipes – Go Ahead and Be Chicken

Pork rind breading for chickenIt may seem strange that the largest (and best tasting) pork rind maker out there would be celebrating National Chicken Month. Hey, we’re Southern Recipe, we can spread our wings.

Have you ever used our rinds to dip into a Buffalo Chicken Dip? Break out of the boring breading you’ve been using and coat your chicken cutlet with crushed pork rinds.  Got a thing for wings? If you don’t, you will. Especially when you fry ’em with Southern Recipe Bar-B-Q Pork Rinds.

So, go ahead be chicken with your next recipe – you won’t go afoul (sorry about that) with rinds in the mix.
