It's the pre-cooked bacon from Trader Joe's. I'm sure there is higher quality bacon out there, but this lets me eat it daily without making my apartment (along with my neighbor's apartment) smell like bacon.
Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

But if I don't cook it, how will I get all the lovely bacon fat?
<.< Trader Joe's is trying to keep the precious bacon fat for themselves! I knew it! I knew TJ was evil! Must get the precious! The precious!
As a joke, last year (before I went Primal) I was going to put a package of this in my sister's Xmas stocking. Now I kind of hope someone puts some in mine!

No offense, but I'm kinda turned off by pre-cooked bacon (and other shelf-stable items that shouldn't otherwise be shelf stable *shudder*)

besides, if you want shelf stable bacon: can't beat Yoder's!
That was sarcasm, btw. While Yoder's retains it's flavor and texture quite well, it's not exactly the most Primal of foods.

Where does everyone get their bacon from? All the bacon in the supermarkets around here are the mainstream ones and all have some sort of chemicals. I don't mind uncured/uncooked ones but I can't find them either. Anyone know of a reputable online source (prefer grass fed)?
Here is a description of Marin Sun Farms pork and what they are fed.
Marin Sun Farms
I found this website and they claim that their pigs are 100% grass fed. I have never personally ordered from them since their facility is not close enough for me to visit.

People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
Cook huge batch in the oven then have it on hand for a third the cost of pre-cooked. To rid a house of cooking smells, boil 2-3 cups water with either vanilla or vinegar.

I don't think I want grass fed pigs. That's just not natural.
