Keto: Bacon appreciation week #1

The rumors are true! Since bacon is full of protein and fat with no carbs, you can eat bacon every day on a keto diet.

This week, we highlight our favorite recipes that include — you guessed it — bacon. In this meal plan, you will enjoy recipes like Keto cheeseburger meatloaf, Keto cobb salad, and Crispy bacon and kale with fried eggs.

What is it that makes bacon so addictive? Is it the aroma? Is it the sound of the bacon sizzling in the pan or the sight of the beautifully crisp, fatty meat? Perhaps you would agree that it’s the first salty, smoky bite. It’s no wonder why bacon is loved by many.

Pro tip: Make sure to buy good quality bacon without sugar. Check out our bacon guide for cooking tips and more helpful information. You can also mix it up by using turkey bacon or beef bacon in place of pork bacon.
