Mustard Pork Loin with Thyme-Roasted CarrotsOver the years I have slowly started to enjoy pork as a dinner option. It’s not a protein we had much growing up, so it’s still limited for dinner. On it’s own, I’m not a huge fan but prepared with the right combination of spices and a great side and a salad – it it a great meal for any night of the week. This recipe is easy to make, and one that your whole family will love.

  • 2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp fresh Thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
