Who loves bacon?🙌 as always, moderation is key🔑 right?! but which is deemed healthier, bacon 🥓or turkey bacon🥓?
first, where does it come from?🤔 pork bacon comes from the belly of a pig 🐖while turkey🦃 bacon is a combination of light and dark meat seasoned like bacon and pressed into bacon 🥓form. •
turkey bacon does contain less f*t and fewer calories, but it is more often than not highly processed and higher in sodium🧂. both options contain vitamin b💊 and zinc🧬, however pork bacon contains more selenium which can aid in preventing cancer🦠 and truthfully what's 8 more grams of f*t going to do? •
if you’re going to choose 👉turkey bacon, purchase🛒 the option with reduced sodium, and don’t add salt 🧂when cooking. use an indoor grill when cooking👩🏻🍳 to let the f*t drip away and avoid adding oil or butter during cooking.
and if you choose pork bacon 🥓 be sure it is nitrate free and limit@portion
size to 1-2 slices. •
in conclusion, most people think 🤔 turkey bacon is "healthier” however it’s still not the healthiest in my opinion. being educated 📖with the facts is essential 📝, as well as eating 🍽 portioned controlled meals for a longer, more fruitful life 🌱
