Top 18 Low-Carb Bacon Recipes

Bacon2

We love bacon and we know we’re not the only ones.

Unfortunately, finding good quality bacon isn’t always easy. A quick look at the ingredient list often shows that you get what you pay for. Better quality almost always costs more. Grass fed and organic is to be preferred but is something that isn’t in everyone’s budget. When it comes to bacon, you want to make sure that smoky flavor actually comes from the bacon being smoked, not just from added aroma. You might also have to check for hidden sugars.

So, once you’ve found that great bacon, how do you cook it? A reader sent us an e-mail with great tips. Here it is, along with our best bacon recipes:

“Why I Supported High Carb”


4.2 out of 5 stars5 stars56%4 stars12%3 stars23%2 stars5%1 star2%39 ratings1,740 views Audio onlyProfessor Tim Noakes has made a huge impact in South Africa, helping tens if not hundreds of thousands of people to transform their lives – losing weight effortlessly and reversing diabetes – on LCHF diets (or Banting, as it’s often called in South Africa).

But Professor Noakes was not always a low-carb supporter. For decades he used to be a major international proponent of high-carb diets, especially for athletes. Then he changed his mind, famously ripping a segment out of his own textbook on the subject.

So why did he support high carb earlier? And why did he change his mind completely? He told it all in his presentation at the LCHF Convention in Cape Town.

Watch a segment above (transcript). The full, longer video is available on our member site:

Americans Were Following the Guidelines and Their Health Deteriorated

US

Americans were following their doctors’ orders – as seen in this ERS report from the United States Department of Agriculture – and yet epidemics of type 2 diabetes and obesity went into full bloom.

The graph above shows the change in calories in the US since 1970 (tweeted by Nina Teicholz). As you can see people swapped healthy animal products for grains, vegetable oil, added sugars, fruit, vegetables and nuts. Exactly what the guidelines were suggesting.

In retrospect, maybe that wasn’t such a good idea.

Why Red Meat Won’t Kill You

Medium Roasted T-Bone Steak

Recent headlines are filled with proclamations that ‘Meat Kills!’ Nothing sells newspapers like the old chestnuts – meat kills!, saturated fat is bad! Let’s take a quick look at this most recent study see if we can draw some conclusions. The study was called ‘Association of Animal and Plant Protein Intake with All-Cause and Cause-Specfic Mortality‘, and published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

This took data from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, a large prospective cohort. This means they followed 131 342 patients over decades, asking them what they ate. Some of them will die or develop other illnesses and then they look at the database collected to see if there are any associations. You can’t make any inference of causality, but many people do anyway. Why not? Continue Reading →
