Corn flakes are good but corn kernels are whole-grain and can really help you reach your veggie goals. Try these corny concoctions:1. Add frozen corn kernels to waffle, cornbread, or pancake batter.

2. Hardboiled eggs pair deliciously with sliced tomatoes. Try on top of crunchy toast.
3. Sauté a skillet full of onions, broccoli, shredded potatoes, or almost any veggie until tender; top with an egg and cover pan until egg is cooked.
I used pork shoulders because it contains some fat that can be extracted during the cooking process. I sprayed the wok with some cooking oil spray to grease it and make sure that the meat won’t stick on it. You can also use a tablespoon of cooking oil if you do not have cooking oil spray. Simply swirl the wok to distribute the oil over it while heating it up.
The pork needs to go first. Once the oil is hot, gently add the pork and brown one side. Turn it over to brown the opposite side. During this process, the fat from the pork gets extracted and turns into oil. We will used this extra oil to cook the garlic an onion.
