Bacon

Dispite the totally wrong wisdom about bacon – it is actually very healthy to incorperate it into your diet.

Bacon is loaded with saturated fats (the good kind) that are critical to cellular function and optimizing your hormones. Not only is it beneficial to your health, it tastes, OH, SO GOOD!

When purchasing bacon, it is best to buy from a known local source that instills the best farming and processing practices.

If local meat is not an option, Applegate has an organic, sugar-free, uncured bacon along with a few other brands you can find at your local health food store.
