It’s BACON! Seriously, who doesn’t love bacon? Well I’ve definitely been looking for a good bacon, and I’m pretty sure I’ve found it at US Wellness Meats, in their Sugar-Free Beef Bacon! What’s great about it? Well, first of all, for mainly personal reasons, we don’t really eat pork in my house…..well I occasionally will, but my boyfriend tries to stay as pork free as possible. Also, most bacon has sugar in it, so even if you grab one of the many nitrate free choices, they still aren’t Whole Life Challenge compliant. Enter the solution to all my problems – Beef Bacon! Add the fact that the ONLY ingredients are beef and celtic sea salt – it’s a Whole Life Challenge/ Whole 30 Approved Grass-Fed match made in heaven for my house. So when I made my first order at US Wellness Meats, you bet I added a package to my cart!
Let me tell you, this stuff is DELICIOUS! In the past I’ve had turkey bacon, which is….meh, and duck Bacon, which is super tasty, but again, usually has sugar. None, were a solid substitute for good ol’ pork bacon. The main issue I had with the non-pork options was the texture, and the potential to be crispy and awesome. It just wasn’t the same. Enter my grass-fed beef friend…..beef bacon get’s it right! It crisps up nicely, it has a perfect bacon texture, and it tastes amazing. It’s a little on the salty side, but hey, it’s bacon. My boyfriend finds it a little “tallowy” but still likes it, so it’s really a matter of preference. I think it’s kind of what happens when bacon and beef jerky have a baby….and there are so many things right about that! Another perk? Beef fat! Get the bacon going on the griddle, and use the grease to cook your eggs afterwards! It’s so flipping good!
Oh, and I should mention that I have no affiliation with US Wellness Meats, nor do I get any money from you clicking the images in my post and wandering to their website to buy bacon. I’m strictly spreading the love.
