Cranberry Gut-Nourishing Pork Chops

Recipe blog and guest post by Emily Hill @wonderwhyimfat.

Easy dinner for two?! Pork chops with a cranberry shallot sauce is the perfect date night meal this month! It’s a quick and easy meal to throw together and can be served with side dishes of your choice.

Cranberries are a great source of nutrients such as vitamins, fiber, minerals, and antioxidants. They can also help relax muscle cramps.

Shallots are helpful for relieving allergy symptoms and can help fight colds, fevers, and coughs. They can also help lower stress levels, so I need all the shallots I can get, along with my favorite stress-busting supplement, Just Calm!

I added capsules of Just Thrive Probiotic to the shallot sauce to get my daily dose of probiotic. I’m not a big fan of swallowing my pills whole, so I love sneaking it into my meals.

I do add butter to the shallot sauce, but you can totally skip that step to make this completely dairy free, or even use a vegan butter! It’s an easy, delicious, gut-licious meal for any day of the week! Enjoy!
