Today’s Healthy Dose – Makin’ Bacon

Naturally cured bacon without any of those nasty “…trates” or “…fites” is super high in Omega 3’s, healthy protein, the full range of B vitamins, and several essential minerals. As an added bonus, bacon has that aroma and taste that make you feel…well, satisfied (some might say blissful), like you’ve eaten something truly yummy. Oh, wait. You have!

Go ahead, make some bacon ūüôā
