5 Healthy Ways To Eat Bacon


Some people might argue that “healthy bacon recipes” is an oxymoron; numerous studies have shown a correlation between meat-eating and heart disease, obesity, and death. But most of the studies don’t take into account what else the subjects are eating—or doing with their bodies—so many people theorize that if you’re active, eat a vegetable-heavy diet and skip out on processed foods and sugar, then the fat and cholesterol in a little bit of bacon won’t kill you.

We can’t provide guarantees, obviously, but if you’ve decided to eat bacon here and there, just be aware of portion control. One (8 gram) slice of pan-fried, cured bacon contains the following:

41 calories
3g fat (1g saturated fat)
9mg cholesterol
188mg sodium
3g protein
