This is my favorite picture on my phone 😍❤️ and it’s also super easy to make. Recipe below. But first - how do you feel about bacon? Do you feel like maybe it’s something you shouldn’t be eating because it’s got a lot of fat? We’ll then, let me tell you about fat, let me tell you how wonderful fat is. There are a lot of scientific reasons why a fat is healthy or not, but here is one not so scientific guideline that will serve you pretty well. Ask yourself “does it make sense”. Meaning do you know about it, do you know where it comes from, does it seem reasonable that that plant/animal would be able to render fat? Does Crisco make sense? Do you know where the crisco plant grows? Uh no 🤪
But olive oil? Olives full of fat, does that make sense? Cows, cream, butter does that make sense? Pigs, bacon? ⁃ fat tastes delicious 😋 ⁃ Fat helps to slow absorption of food so that your blood sugar stays more balanced and you stay full longer. ⁃ Fat has fat soluble vitamins (vitamin A,D,E and K) In very bio available forms.
So eat that fat, because it’s delicious and it’s good for you, and I promise it doesn’t make you fat (sugar does) and if you have more questions check out the book Eat the Yolks by Liz Wolfe or Put Your Heart in Your Mouth by Dr. Natasha Campbell - McBride M.D.
Recipe: pears quartered, wrapped in a piece of raw bacon. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 425 for 20 minutes or so. You’re welcome 😉😉😉
