Sugar Free Bacon for Breakfast!

Sugar Free Bacon for Breakfast

Breakfast without bacon … just isn’t quite as satisfying. ¬†That’s why I was so thrilled to find a great source for Sugar Free Bacon ūüôā

I am happy to tell you that US Wellness Meats has three pages of Sugar Free Products – all minimally processed – my favorite so far is the Sugar Free Pork Bacon. ¬†For me, it tastes just like Grandma’s bacon from her farm in Southern Illinois. ¬†Yep – and here’s why: ¬†the only ingredients are pork and sea salt.¬† No white sugar, brown sugar, honey powder, agave, turbinado sugar, MSG, nitrates or nitrites.

So … fry some up – and serve it with some organic eggs scrambled with a few handfuls of fresh organic spinach and you’ve got yourself a nutritious and delicious start to the day.




It’s Small Business Saturday, today!

It’s Small Business Saturday, today! ¬†According to wikipedia, Small Business Saturday was first observed on November 27, 2010. ¬† I fully support the movement to raise awareness that we DO vote with our dollars every time we make a purchase. ¬†If you want your local retailers to STAY IN BUSINESS – it is up to you and me to shop there. ¬†So, I believe in shopping local whenever possible.

Did I venture up to the very busy shopping mall today?  No.  I visited my very favorite locally owned and operated Produce Depot in St. John, IN.   I bought ALL ORGANIC  fruits and veggies:  strawberries, pomegranats, date rolls, green peppers, arugula salad, grape tomatoes, broccoli, spaghetti squash, red onion and garlic.  No other retailer around here takes the time to stock as many fresh organic items, and I (for one) greatly appreciate them.  I am ready to cook for the week!


Oh! ¬† While not organic, I also purchased ¬†DaBecca Roast Beef – a local company (based in Chicago) that produces incredibly delicious lunchmeat without nitrites, hormones or antibiotics. ¬†Check out the nutrition label on this product! ¬†This lunchmeat tastes fabulous and is “whole 30 compliant”!

Shop Local, folks!
