There are plenty of people who love bacon and it is a topic of hot debate. In the communities where a Paleo style diet is coveted, there are people who think that it is the best food ever. These people often eat a lot of bacon because they don’t want to have to worry about fatty foods. In their philosophy, the bacon is a source of true animal protein and fat which is what we need. However, there are plenty of other things that we need to consider when it comes to making bacon a healthy food choice. Here are 3 main ways you can make bacon a little bit healthier:
- Make it a garnish – there is no reason bacon has to be such a substantial part of the meal. It will suffice to just have bacon bits or a single strip of bacon in a taco rather than making it the bulk of the meal. Making bacon a large percentage will increase the fat and total calories not to mention all the acids that are in pork fat.
- Eat it sparingly – because people become so ideologically in favor of something, they often go too far and eat it over and over again. Instead of doing this, it is far better if you are eating it sparingly so that you can enjoy it and not have any of the negative side effects or downsides. This can mean every other day or every couple of days.
- Find high quality producers – if you are into buying natural and real foods, it makes sense for you to buy the best you can. For bacon and other meat products that is even more important because the way the animal was treated has a significant role on the quality of the food itself.
