Re: Bacon question

Right, don't eat sugar ... it stores as fat, sometimes.
But eat fat, because it almost always stores ...
oh never mind

It's da inzulin, it makes you fat. But bacon makes you skinny, in fact, better go with an entire English breakfast. Eggs, sausage, bacon, mmmmm, Paleo goodness.

Isn't wine part of the English breakfast? LOL.

I've been drooling for the last 20 min looking at this site. Thank you for posting it.

Re: Bacon question

Liz Wolfe wrote a good article on bacon pointing to a study that suggests, "The processing of pork in customary ways by salts and acidic marinades makes pork safe for consumption...traditional processing of pork also seems to prevent the inflammatory and blood clotting effects as observed here through live blood analysis, although we do not know why. We speculate that raw pork contains a toxin, unidentified to date, and that heat alone from cooking cannot destroy it, but that fermentation with salt, and also acid plus heat, do so."

So the takeaway I got from it is the quality and method of preparation determine how healthy bacon is for you.

Personally, I try to eat bacon in moderate amounts and only 1 or 2 times per week. I would eat it more, but cooking it can be a chore.

Actually, the prices are really good. Thanks for posting this site.
