So, if there is one thing I love, its bacon. My daughter’s boyfriend, Phil once told me during a deep culinary conversation (and I quote) ” Everything tastes better with bacon on it.” I couldn’t agree more!
My concern about eating bacon on a regular basis is the amount of nitrates, sodium and preservatives found in it. It is my recommendation that cured meat is something that should be avoided most of the time for optimal health…This is why I limited my family’s bacon consumption to a treat…BUT…while on our family vacation this past August, I tasted the most DELICIOUS bacon I have ever tasted. We were at my parents house… I immediately asked my mother where she bought it and if it had nitrates. When she told me that it was all natural and uncured, I almost fell off my chair at the breakfast table. My prayers had finally been answered and I had to share the great news with you, my peeps!
The brand of this:
- Ever so delicious
- Making all other bacon pale in comparison
is Good Nature – Center Cut Uncured Applewood Smoked Bacon. Here’s a snippet I copied off of their official website:
In a nutshell, what sets Good Nature™ pork apart from other pork?
It’s 100% natural* pork. No antibiotics. No growth stimulants. No artificial ingredients. Minimally processed. It’s also pork raised on a 100% vegetarian diet, so you know you’re getting a truly natural* product when you choose Good Nature™.
The only word that comes to my mind is….YIPPEE!!!!! Okay, so here’s the deal…
Its available for purchase at any BJ’s Wholesale Club. If you click on the link to the website you can search for a BJ’s near you.
Everyone who knows me, knows that I hate to feel deprived and I hate the word diet. HATE, HATE, HATE! With this bacon you can have your bacon and eat it too!
Writing this also brings to mind my Golden Rule, “Everything In Moderation”, its not what you do some of the time, its what you do most of the time that affects your health. This post is NOT a green light to eat bacon every day, three meals a day.
For all you bacon lovers- I highly recommend that you try this bacon. I hope you enjoy its spectacular taste as much as I do. This is about as guilt free as can be for pork bacon. The takeaway for this post is to avoid any foods that are cured or have nitrates.
Another great tip for all of my very busy and overworked peeps is to buy 2 boxes. Keep one to use and freeze one box for later. Us busy folks need to implement effective time saving strategies…
Can anyone say Eggs over Easy with a side of Bacon?
