As a Bacon lover, I totally need this.
I am not 100% convinced that I need be eating bacon at every meal.
Not 100%. Not every meal.
But, paleo has, at the very least, given me a slightly different perspective on what has long been a very, very guilty pleasure. Before, sadly, I felt I had to hide my bacon-eating. “Plink, plink.” That is the sound of my falling bacon-shame tears.
Now, I feel OK when I occasionally bring home the fancy nitrate-free, happy, free-range-pig bacon, and fry it up in the pan. While I don’t kid myself into thinking it’s health food, I don’t feel like I am an evil person for eating it, especially wrapped in romaine lettuce leaves and tomato slices.
BLT, hold the bread!
Generally when it comes to protein, I prefer fish, chicken, beef, and other seafood to pork… But, dear li’l piggies, I thank you kindly for your bacon.
