    Yumm, sound good. I am starting to use bacon fat for all kinds of things. Previously I would just toss the stuff out, now it is like liquid gold.

    Most people here really like bacon (I mean who doesn't), but I'm wondering about the sodium content. Any bacon is extremely high in sodium by definition. I try to keep my sodium content low, is that not a concern of others? I know the occasional high sodium meal isn't going to cause any harm but I've noticed that people are eating a lot of foods that contain really high sodium levels. As usual, the recommended level of 2000mg per day is way out of whack. We probably need more along the lines of 250-500mg per day. Any thoughts?

    I keep my salt intake extremely low. Bacon is about the only food that we buy that has added salt.


    We choose bacon purely by sodium level. The one we get has 1/5th the salt of 'regular' bacon.


    In Australia they don't add the high levels of sugar and other weirdness that seems to go on in America.

    • Tubers (potato/arrowroot etc) . . . • Modernly palatable (cashews/olives etc) . . . • Refined foods (salt/sugars etc )
    • Legumes (soy/beans/peas etc)

    What brands of bacon do you guys buy and how do you choose the best one? I was at the store last night and spent about 20 minutes in fron of the shelve with bacon and I still couldn't figure out what was the difference between the packages. I ended up going with the one from a local farm that didn't have any fancy packaging.

    I go with any that are nitrate-free. Bonus points if they're locally raised. I got some uncured, peppered bacon at Wegmans the other week and wow! It was some tasty stuff.

    We are the same as Tarlach really, nothing else we buy or eat has added sodium, and the naturally occurring sodium in nuts, meat, and veggies is slim to none. I don't worry about it at all anymore, especially since even on a bacon day I'm nearly always below 1,000mgs of sodium. Plus bacon is delicous

    I get my bacon from Trader Joes, which is labeled as uncured and nitrites free. And is also cheap.

    Why is it assumed that everyone needs to be on a low sodium diet? Electrolytes are very important. Some need more and some need less, it's very individual! My little pet peeve....
