Why does bacon make you feel so good? Because it’s practically a vitamin full of all those wonderful mood balancing B vitamins we all need–especially in the dark of winter!
“From bacon, we receive: 65% of our Recommended Daily Intake of Thiamin (Vitamin B1) as well as 47% of our Niacin (Vitamin B3), 38% of our Vitamin B12, 36% of our Zinc, 24% of our Vitamin B6, 22% of our Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), 22% of our Phosphorus, 10% of our Pantothenate, 10% of our Magnesium, 9% of our Iron and the Protein to fat balance in bacon is actually 4 to 1, which is one of the highest protein to fat balances found in any meat, fish or fowl found on Earth.”
Plus, bacon just makes your brain work better. I’ve often thought this on a Saturday morning while sipping a cup of joe and munching a crispy, delicious slice.
“Bacon is chock full of a very important nutrient called ‘choline,’ which helps increase our intelligence and memory, from conception to Senior Status, and has been shown in University studies to help fight off the debilitating effects of Alzheimer’s Disease and other chronic mental impairments.”
Bacon is good for your heart… and by that, I don’t mean your soul, I mean the organ pumping blood through your body. Surprised?
“While people over the years have mistakenly made jokes about bacon being a leading contributor to heart disease, actually there are in fact, several studies that show that the Omega-3 Fatty Acids and ‘choline’ found in bacon can actually protect the heart from developing detrimental problems, as well as actually help HEAL such anomalies, after they have occurred! Unlike the Omega-3 Fatty Acids supplements derived from fish sources, the one’s that come from bacon aren’t chock fully of poisonous mercury, like most of the popular fish oil versions are. So bacon Omega-3 can not only help prevent heart disease, as well as lower your cholesterol, reduce inflammation and improve circulation, but also help you to avoid mercury and other toxic poisons being regularly spewed in our planet’s oceans.”
Worried about Nitrates? Awww phooey! Did you know that spinach and bacon have about the same amount of nitrates and nitrites… and between the two of them, my tastebuds prefer bacon. Besides, haven’t you heard…
“…what most pro -veggie, chicken and fish nutritionists fail to tell you is that you can easily avoid nitrates and nitrites by simply (A) not burning / charring / over cooking your bacon or by (B) Baking your bacon in the oven.”
And where — you may ask — did I get most of this wonderful information? Why, from the completely un-bias online publication, “Bacon Today.”
There. I think that settles it.
