I baked some pork chops the other day and they came out horribly. I was almost going to throw them away when I said why don't I just deep fry them and see if I can salvage them. Lets just say they went from no taste and horrible to this mind blowing taste I won't forget. I am wondering if I can deep fry every meal now including the vegetables I eat? Or is this unhealthy? Also I use coconut oil but that is pretty expensive, can anyone recommend a cheaper oil to use to fry instead?

I'm pretty sure you can re-use the oil after deep frying foods. That would make it cheaper. I don't deep fry as that much hot oil on the stove makes me nervous. I sauté a whole bunch of my foods tho, in butter or other oil - love it.
Have you considered an air fryer? We bought a GoWise a year or so ago and love it. I'm not a fan of deep frying for multiple reasons. You can also try rolling the pork chops in some egg and crushed pork rinds or (gasp) oatmeal or gluten-free flour like coconut or almond and then baking them. It holds the juices in.
