Holiday Pork Tenderloin With Fruit

Holiday pork tenderloin is the perfect recipe for any holiday party dinner. Many of my clients ask me at this time of year for recipes that they can serve that will adhere to their food sensitivities yet be fancy enough for a dinner party.

This pork tenderloin with fruit recipe fits that bill. It is one of the many recipes in my new cookbook, Finally… Paleo Food I Can Eat. A dietary guide and cookbook featuring recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and snacks that are free of gluten, dairy, eggs, grains, legumes, refined sugar and almonds. Many people who want to follow a paleo diet have sensitivities to eggs or almonds. I set out to create recipes that are simple, healthy and free of many of the top food allergens.

I hope you will check out my cookbook here and let me know how you enjoy this holiday pork tenderloin.
