Mother’s Day Recipes Made With Love
Many of us plan to spend Mothering Sunday with our mums and family, but it will be different for some of us this year with self-isolating and social distancing measures in place. Here at LovePork we’re thinking about the different ways we can show these heroes in our lives – from mum to grandma to step-mum – how much we care. If you can’t be with mum, you can still put a smile on her face by sending flowers, posting a card, making a playlist of her favourite songs or even organising a cyber-style dinner-date through FaceTime or Skype. For those of us who are with our mums on Mother's Day, we've chosen a selection of recipes for you, so you can treat her to a delicious meal.
Join us on Facebook for a chat and share your recipes, tips and ideas that might help others. We’d love to hear what you're doing for Mother’s Day this year with everything going on.
You might be finding it tricky to buy groceries at the moment as well as trying to watch the pennies. So we’ve chosen some easy on the pocket, easy to make, heart-warming recipes that feature store-cupboard staples. Get in touch on Facebook if you're missing an ingredient and need a swap.
Here's some heart-warming Mother's Day recipes, with love, from us...

Pork is a great food choice
Not only is pork incredibly tasty, but it can also be part of a healthy, balanced diet. Pork cuts, such as fillet and loin medallions are low in saturated fat. Did you know that these cuts are quick and easy to cook, and are just as healthy as chicken breasts?*
Not only can pork be lean, but it is also rich in protein, naturally low in sodium and provides essential vitamins and minerals that contribute towards good health and well-being. Pork contains vitamin B12, B6, zinc and selenium for example, which help the immune system to work normally. More info is provided in our Pork and Healthy Eating Guide. To discover more about the benefits of a healthy, balanced diet check out the Ordinary Food website.
*Both pork and chicken are naturally rich in protein. Protein helps muscle growth. This relates to pork loin medallions and fillet medallions trimmed of visible fat and to skinless chicken breasts.
