This may be a dumb question but I just printed the PB shopping list on this site and I do not see bacon listed. Is it a fat or protein? Would it just be categorized as pork? I am confused. I have not eaten bacon in a looooong time but I am going to start so I was just wondering. Thanks.
And there are a very few of us who do not consider bacon a paleo food although it is widely and wildly accepted as primal. Too highly processed for my thinking - i will eat uncured bacon - pork belly- though.
I do occassionally eat regular bacon but it is in my 20%.
Pork belly please tell me more...
Freerange organic, roasted chinese style? Now that is just orgasmic imho :-D
Yes we all prefer better quality pork, but I see no reason why the conventional stuff can't at least be enjoyed weekly. Pigs aren't given growth hormones and antibiotics don't end up in meat. The problem seems to be antibiotic-resistant bacteria. When heat-resistant bacteria evolve, then we'll talk.
However when you take sugar and fat/protein and heat them you get AGES - advanced glycated endproducts which are very reactive, so I think the advice for uncured is well-founded.
Stabbing conventional wisdom in its face.

We (will, my fiancÚ does) make our own cured meats, from local, grass-fed pork. Right now we're enjoying a batch of pancetta.
I'm not really a pork or bacon person but I just bought two packages so I guess I will just use those up. I guess I just bought it because I read all about it on here! lol So, I guess for ME it won't be much of a primal/paleo food.
What about turkey Bacon? What are some thoughts on that...
