My friend suggested I make a Bacon explosion: 2 pounds bacon, thick sliced 2 pounds sausage (italian, breakfast, sage. Whichever you prefer) 1 cup cheddar cheese (finely shredded) 2 whole green onions (thinly sliced) 4 cloves garlic (minced) 1... (more)
What's the hold time for refrigerating bacon once it's cooked? Also can you freeze cooked bacon? I want to make mini bacon bowls in advance and am not sure exactly how to store them.
I am looking to add some pork to my diet. I have the option of fresh pork (pork chops, shoulder, etc.) or nitrate/nitrite free sausages and bacon (AppleGate farms and a few others I can't think of off the top of my head). What is better to... (more)
I have had horrible headaches after eating fresh pork products before. Unsure whether it was because it was conventional or if it was some issue with pork itself. Once a week, however, I eat bacon from a local organic farm and I feel pretty good... (more)
What's the nutritional difference? How does the fatty acid profile differ? I'm sure someone can pull up a decent study - the USDA food database doesn't distinguish, of course.
I can't help you with the studies but I am assuming that you're interested just to see if pastured products are 'worth it' for you, and you want to see if you can back it up with peer reviewed science. I don't know about any 'studies', but... (more)
Most foods flare up my rheumatoid arthritis, including all meat except for fish. And turkey bacon, for some reason. Other forms of turkey flare up my joints. Chicken flares up my joints. Regular (pork) bacon flares up my joints. Turkey bacon?... (more)
Trying to lose about 15 pounds and I heard the fastest way to do that is low-carb. I can still have ice cream since its dairy if I understand ketosis correctly. And since chocolate bacon is meat, it's recommended on carb-restricted diets as well,... (more)
Hello! Sometimes I try to buy some bacon bits (to have them with scrambled eggs) without any other ingredients. But many bacon bit products contain dextrose, salt and spices. I learned about fructose but know nothing about dextrose. I know that... (more)
Dextrose is another name for glucose. Glucose is the primary sugar your body produces or stores for energy. Excessively high blood glucose levels are damaging over long periods of time, but glucose itself is harmless. If the total amount of sugar... (more)
Is this a healthy interpretation of the paleo diet? I was under the impression that saturated fat is not bad for you and was reading the updated version of the paleo diet and it is saying that saturated fat does cause inflammation and increased... (more)
Hi guys! I was wondering about bacon! It's clearly something a lot of people who eat paleo eat! Is there a certain type to eat/not eat?? And presumably it's best to not eat too regularly or is that mainly up to how much you feel is enough?
Nitrate/nitrite-free is a gimmick, don't bother. A little sugar for the cure, completely fine! It's much more important that the actual meat be good quality, rather than focusing excessively on the cure used.
Hey PH (pun intended?), I'm going through the whole 'what food is doing what' moment right now. When I woke up today I had my usual breakfast: eggs with kerrygold unsalted butter and two slices of bacon. I also had a Granny Smith Apple. I have... (more)
Idk that there's any way to know, aside from removing things 1 by 1, then adding them back in and seeing what caused it. It also happened once, so it may not be anything that's any sort of big deal.
I recently made a huge push at my business to supply In-House Honey-Cured Bacon. We make it from locally supplied pasture raised pork belly, local raw unfiltered honey, and pink sea salt. After finally making this a reality, I have customers... (more)
Sugar free for me I have tried bacon with maple syrup and bacon with no sugar... I prefer the sugar free... The majority of Paleo/Primal people will prefer sugar free
I live in Pasadena, CA. I recently discovered that if I purchase pork belly at around $5.60 or less per pound it would be cheaper and healthier than if I kept buying the nitrite/ate free bacon from Trader Joe's. My girlfriend and I have a bacon... (more)
I've been Paleo for months, probably 85%, and I began my first Whole30 on April 1. I missed that one of the ingredients of my organic dried cherries is "cane sugar." I included it in a homemade trail mix and ate some on their own a few times, but... (more)
My son is turning 4 and is having a bacon and lumberjacks themed birthday party. It should be great, but I am just seeking out a recipe for a bacon dip that would work with veggies and plantain chips. There's lots of dips out there, but we are... (more)
i am doing some research into paleo products that would be popular and a little bit different from the existing snack products on the market. i've asked the question about paleo products you would like to see on the shelf but would also... (more)
I am a fan of bacon, and I know I am not alone in my affection for this slice of meat. Sure, it's not the healthiest thing for us paleo-peeps, but it is yummy! Each year in Chicago (SF and DC also), there is BaconFest, a 1-day celebration of this... (more)
My old neighbor used to point out that the countries who are in unrest are all non pork eating countries- and that these people were so unhappy/volatile because they did not have bacon!
Anyone tried this microwave bacon cooker? I just saw it on an infomercial. Not asking about the pros and cons of using a microwave to cook food here but rather the product itself - if it is easy to use, works, easy clean up, etc.? ... (more)
I have one. It now lives in the cabinet along with all the other unpopular kitchen stuff. Bottom line clean up was a pain (all those grooves). It always seemed greasy after cleaning (plastic+grease). And of course there was the whole weird plastic... (more)
I have been frying my eggs and bacon for a while now and am beginning to question, like many others, just how bad it is for my health (oxidation, etc). What could I make for breakfast that would be equally as filling without frying?
First, frying is not bad, set the stove to medium low and let it heat up slowly. You will have more than enough heat to cook the eggs you do not need to go all out. Second, Try hard boiled eggs or cooking in the oven.
Could someone please make sense of this article for me? I like tilapia because of its versatility, but reading this has made me think twice about purchasing. Can anyone decipher whether or not I should be worried about my tilapia... (more)
I have noticed some tiny black lines under my fingernails and googled to find out they are called splinter hemorrhages. I noticed them on 3 nails, 2 tiny little dots and one little line and I can't say I've ever noticed such a thing before eating... (more)
Could you consume too much bacon fat? Every morning, I'll make anywhere from 3-4 slices of bacon, and maybe a couple of eggs cooked in the bacon fat. After I'm done cooking those, I'll use the remaining bacon fat to cook some veggies in. Is that... (more)
Is there ever to much bacon! I know it is a sin, not used all that bacon fat. I will not tell, if you do not! What kind bacon, do you buy?
