Me and ManBacon!

Me and ManBacon!

Bacon used to repulse me.
No, I’m not making it up.

Over the summer of 2012, after years of bacon repulsion, the last person on earth to convert to Baconism (ahem, me), inexplicably gave in and joined the ranks of fun-loving bacon enthusiasts.

It took one very tasty accident and I became a bacon aficionado, addict, evangelist, and enabler. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if I burn out and need to go to bacon rehab in the very near future. Kidding. Sorta.

I was obsessed enough to make my love of bacon visible.

So, I started this blog on a whim after dinner on Jan 1, 2013 as a sort of anti-New Year’s resolution. Blogging about bacon everyday, and making a lot of tasty bacon recipes? Now that was a New Year’s resolution I could stick to. None of  that diet and exercise stuff (cliche. snore).

Why I couldn’t have just stuck to eating bacon — and maybe blogging about it a simple once or twice a week — I’ll never know. But noooo, naturally I had to go and take it the bacon extreme, resolving to post bacon love daily. You know, in my “free time,” whenever that is.

Way to go bacon brain.

But anyway, that is how this 365 Days of Bacon food baby blog was born.

And here are a few lines from its favorite Dr. Seuss book:

 

Yes,

I will eat bacon in a box.
And I wil eatl bacon with a fox.
And I will eat bacon in a house.
And I will eat bacon with a mouse.
And I will eat bacon here and there.
Say! I will eat bacon ANYWHERE!

I do so like
green eggs and ….BACON!

Gluten-Free, Paleo, Sugar-Free, Low-Carb, Etc?

Do I have a dietary bias?

Well, yes, actually. If it matters…

You can expect my recipes to be naturally low-carb, gluten-free, sugar-free, and (generally) Paleo-approved. I avoid grains, beans, legumes, and soy. I’d give up dairy if it weren’t for cheese. I follow a low-carb, Paleo diet.

Which works well with bacon.  🙂

But wait! Is it healthy to eat THAT much bacon?

Well, give me the 365 days to experiment and I’ll let you know  😉

What I can tell you is that bacon has gotten a really, really bad rap over the years, mostly because people incorrectly believe that FAT IN = FAT ON and they are scared of the calories and fat in bacon. But the truth is, our bodies are so much more complicated than a simple FAT IN = FAT ON relationship.

Bacon contains fat AND protein, two absolutely essential macronutrients that support healthy, happy human bodies. And if you’re not buying the nasty, over-processed bacon (I recommend uncooked, uncured, no junk added) there’s no reason to worry about it.

But don’t just take my word for it, see what some of the experts say about bacon:

    Just found your blog (through Pig Love) and wanted to mention you on mine so I’ve just nominated you for the Super Sweet Award:

    Keep up the good bacon-eating work!

  2. Just out of curiosity: how’s the bacon diet treating your body so far? Have you had your blood work done recently?
    I ask only because I had mine done recently, and my doctor literally called me a liar when he compared my blood work with my food log (yes, log not blog). He honestly couldn’t conceive of a world where someone eats more than 6 ounces of red meat per week, let alone per meal, and has healthy blood numbers.
    So I’m just hoping you’ve had a chance to gloat at your doctor recently… Any luck on that?

    • Ha! So funny you should ask….

      There’s going to be a blog post about this exact subject coming soon!

      I have printed, quantifiable results from health test of ManBacon from last year to just this week. Every aspect of what was tested has improved!!! and significantly in some cases, like cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar.

      As for me, I was going to the doctor regularly over the last few years. I haven’t gone in quite some time!

      Hurray for (mostly) Paleo and bacon!

  3. You know how much I love your blog, right? Well I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award!

    This blog is fantastic! I’m really pleased to see that you recommend the pure, no nitrate/nitrite, uncured bacon over the processed junk. I switched to the non-processed for quite a while but eventually gave up bacon entirely due to personal reasons and a book, The Good Good Pig and have never looked back. Thanks for stopping by WryGrass!
