CalPure™ California Extra Virgin Avocado Oil & Fig-Glazed Pork Tenderloin with roasted Brussels sprouts and carrots
I received product samples for review purposes. All opinions stated are 100% mine.
I joined a meal delivery service called Home Chef. Every week I get to select new meals that I want to try and they send me everything I need to fix the meals from the meat, veggies right down to all of the scrumptious sauces I’ve been trying. All of the meals call for Olive Oil but this time I decided to use Avocado Oil instead. I received some in the mail this week and I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to try it. I’ve been hearing great things about this healthy, tasty and versatile alternative to other cooking oils so it was time for me to try it for myself. I started with a delicious Fig-Glazed Pork Tenderloin that I served with roasted Brussels sprouts and carrots. It was one of my weekend meals that I selected from the Home Chef subscription service I mentioned. You’ll hear more about them so be watching. But let me get back to the CalPure™ California Extra Virgin Avocado Oil. It was so delicious, Alyssa and I scarfed down our meal in less time than it took for me to take photos, lol.
I started by searing my pork loin on 3 sides in hot Avocado Oil. I added a little salt and pepper but kept it simple. While that was cooking, I roasted some carrots, Brussels sprouts and scallions which I drizzled with Avocado Oil as well. At this point, my home was starting to smell amazing and Alyssa and I were ready for our meal to be done. It didn’t take long to cook it but when we were smelling the delicious aromas, it seemed like an eternity. I’ve been told that in addition to a delicious, buttery taste which I can absolutely vouch for, CalPure is also naturally gluten-free, sodium-free, and high in cholesterol-lowering beta-sitosterol. Hows that for a healthy alternative?
This was one of the best meals I’ve cooked all week and I’m sure it’s due in part by the flavor of the Avocado Oil. If you’re ready to try CalPure Avocado Oil to replace your current oil, it’s available online at www.CalPureFoods.com for only $9.75 for a 8.5 FL OZ bottle.
