If you are a fan of the author Laura Ingalls, you may have read that lard has been mentioned many times in her book series. It is because lard is a staple for cooking and baking centuries ago. One of her books also said that lard is delicious spread for sour bread. It is responsible for making flaky pie crusts and biscuits and it gives more flavor to sauces and gravies. It has been used in the kitchen by our ancestors. But as the world modernized, lard has eventually disappeared – partly because of misconceptions that it is not healthy for our heart and can cause clogged arteries. So let us now set the record straight. Lard is a healthy cooking fat that deserves to be in our kitchen cupboards more than any expensive and imported cooking oil.

Health Benefits Of Using Pork Lard

1. High In Vitamin D

Pork lard is high in vitamin d, which makes it beneficial for people with vitamin D deficiency. If your body has adequate vitamin D, you will have a lower risk of developing cancer and other auto-immune diseases.

2. Good For The Heart

Just because lard is fat, it will put you at a higher risk of a heart attack. It is just a myth, so definitely, it is not valid. Lard is high in saturated fat, which according to a study it raises HDL cholesterol that reduces the risk for heart attack. If we can think it through, our great-great-grandparents who regularly consumed lard have a longer lifespan than the elders today.

3. Aids In Cancer Prevention

Pork lard is high in monounsaturated fat, which helps maintain healthy cells and lower blood cholesterol levels. According to the studies, these fats also contain oleic acid, which helps block cancer-causing oncogene that usually causes breast cancer.

4. A Healthy Source Of Cholesterol

Pork lard is high in dietary cholesterol that does not contribute to heart diseases. Cholesterol from fat is considered a healing agent that aids in reducing depression and supports hormone production and inflammation management.

5. Supports Bone Health

Pork lard is a rich source of vitamin D, which is crucial for our bones. Vitamin D has a significant role in the metabolism of phosphorus and the regulation of calcium.

Aside from the health benefits of pork lard, making it a substitute for our daily cooking oil is more economical. It is excellent for baking, and it will give your food a distinct taste of pork. When you have no meat available, using pork lard in sauteing will give your dish a natural meat flavor even without meat.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
