Did you know that there are many healthier ways to eat bacon? Or that you can actually enjoy it more often? Probably not, but itâ€™s true. Most people donâ€™t realize how unhealthy bacon can be.Â
Eating Bacon in a Healthy Way
But eating bacon in moderation can be beneficial to your diet and your health as long as you know how to prepare it.
This article will show you how to eat bacon healthier and how to make it more often.
Look for Nitrite-Free Bacon
Processed bacon often contains sodium nitrite, an additive that amplifies the baconâ€™s color, taste, and shelf life. But nitrite can also turn into nitrate, which can cause cancer in humans.
Make Your Own Bacon
This is the healthiest option because itâ€™s not preserved with preservatives or added salt.
Use a Healthier Cooking MethodÂ
You can often make your bacon healthier by cooking it at a lower temperature. You can also try using a healthier type of fat, such as olive oil instead of butter.
Add a Fruit or Vegetable to the same Pan as your Bacon
This will help to flavor the bacon and keep your food from burning.
