Hi Ho, Silver! Ride!
Dear Sleepy Harry,Just what is "natural'' bacon ? thanks, Your low carb princessBayoubabe
Good day, Bayoubabe.I just mean "nitrate-free" bacon. I'm kind of leery of nitrates and nitrites. I think it's probably best to avoid them.Some markets and health food stores sell such products.
Hi Harry,Nitrate-free bacon isn't available here as far as I've searched (and believe me, I've tried!) but I've been reading articles recently that say it's a myth they cause any problems at all.I know believing them is probably just wishful thinking on my part, but what exactly do you think they damage?Oh, and thanks so much for your support! It really means a lot :)e
Howdy, Erika.My understanding is that the concern is primarily directed at the possible increased risk of certain cancers.The cancer-link is suggested (by some research) but not proven. I guess I'm just trying to limit the potential risk. If I remember correctly, even Dr. Atkins mentioned took a similar position (based on an old Larry King interview that I saw).I'm sure I'm still exposed to many harmful substances in my diet - even though I try to avoid them. But, I hope that some of the healthier foods and supplements I take may counteract the negative elements. Perhaps that's my entry into the "wishful thinking" category. :)
yum yum and more yum. you eat so well, and so deliciously!
Thanks, October!It's a pretty satisfying diet. :) What more could I ask for?
