    Bacon Love Fest: 35 Portktastic Paleo Recipes

    This Valentine’s Day, show a little love with everyone’s favorite Paleo treat-meat, bacon. Instead of putting together a collection of traditional chocolatey desserts, I thought I’d compile some of the most nom-worthy bacon recipes from some of my favorite Paleo bloggers.

    Here’s my personal take on bacon: I think of it as a condiment, a topping, a savory-salty flavoring agent meant to enhance the flavor of a dish. Personally, I can’t sit down and eat a pound of bacon in one sitting. Perhaps there’s a button broken in my brain somewhere? No matter what your personal bacon tolerance limit is, ensure you pick a high-quality brand with minimal ingredients. (I suggest looking for a brand that contains ingredients such as pork, salt, brown sugar, celery salt and not much more than that.) Why? Pastured animals have healthier fat profiles than factory-raised animals.

    But isn’t pastured meat more expensive? Absolutely, but you’re getting what you pay for. Since I only eat a couple strips at a time, I make my high-quality bacon last much longer…*wink wink*.

    1. i have never been a bacon girl. growing up i thought it was way too salty and just preferred to eat more eggs 😉 i would like to get my hands on some quality bacon, though. i like it crunched up on a salad every now and then
