    bacon frenzy..... why?

    Shop Now
    I've been reading Paleo/Primal sites for about a month, and I cut out most of the carbs.

    Why is there such a frenzy about eating huge amounts of bacon? It just seems so.... unnecessary.

    Most of the bacon available in stores has a lot of crap in it. Sugar, nitrates, etc.

    Am I missing something?

    heh.. I played out the bacon and eggs for breakfast in about 4 weeks... Who doesnt eat breakfast anymore??? This guy haha.

    On the other hand I think of the bacon as a metaphor for just meat and fat...

    uhm, it's neat to "fight the man" and the man's desire to tell you bacon is bad for you. It's a knee-jerk reaction akin to a juvenile rebellion, and it's effing tasty, so shut up and nom more swine stomach!

    Yes (you are missing something) - most primal folk don't sit around eating bacon. It's an amazing occasional treat if you can find it without all the extra junk added. It's just kind of a meme that goes under its own momentum. Don't feel like you ought to be eating it.

    and I'd say, if you want to eat it, do it, but if you find yourself eating a lot, PM me and I'll tell you how to make your own. (Offer is open to anyone.)

    hell, it's fun to watch people's skin crawl when you bust out a side of bacon that has a nipple on it.

    I think that some of go through a bacon phase. I fixed it more frequently when I first turned primal then abandoned it due to it's piss poor fat to protein ratio and the assorted crap that goes into it. Now, I'm not afraid to use it in some way in cooking once in a blue moon but it's not a stable food and I don't recall the last time I had any.

    Oh GAG!!! That alone would do me in!

    For me, bacon is more a metaphor. Although I love it, it is simply too expensive for me to eat daily. We do tease at home though and use it as a verb. My daughter came in while I was making burgers and simply said "bacon it mom!" and off it goes in our house. lol

    You should have seen the looks I got at a brunch when I ran bacon under the chocolate fountain at the dessert table. I didn't see any "fruit only" signs!
