Re: Lean meats...but bacon....

I eat turkey bacon just because it has less sodium/fat. The Butterball turkey bacon tastes the closest to real bacon if you don't get it too crispy...plus you're still getting your protein.

I used to do that but then I actually compared the ingredients and determined the small amount of extra fat really can't be any worse than the science experiment that is turkey bacon.
