Pork remains a controversial meat here on Healthy Eats -- it seems people either love it or hate it. It's true that fattier pork products, like bacon, should be eaten in moderation, but pork chops are a loin cut, which means they're super lean, low in fat and high in protein. So break up your chicken-or-pasta dinner routine with a plate of lean, savory pork chops this weekend.
