Don’t ask why. You already know why. You were scrolling down your news feed, and you saw a link containing 17 Bacon recipes. That is why you are here. And I am here to deliver.
Let me start by saying this. Everyone loves bacon. There is no reason why you should not like bacon.If you don’t like bacon, you should leave immediately. I think most of us will agree, bacon tastes swell on just about everything under the sun. From sandwiches to ice cream, and seafood to pancakes. Bacon is literally the cherry on top.
Bacon also has nutritional benefits. (NO WAY!, Did he just say…) Yes. It is true. Bacon is high in protein, low in carbs, and helps to promote leaner, stronger muscle. It is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids (without the mercury you get from fish) which helps to protect against heart disease, lowers cholesterol, and reduces inflammation while improving circulation. Bacon is also loaded with a nutrient called “Choline”, which has been shown through university studies to help improve intelligence and memory, and help combat the effects of Alzheimer’s disease. Also, bacon contains less total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol than many cuts of chicken and beef. (Those are good too though) Just don’t make all 17 recipes at once. That might not be so good.
Now that we have validated the existence of this seemingly absurd blog, it is time to expand our beliefs on perhaps one of the greatest gifts known to taste buds throughout the world. Bacon.
