An Ode to Bacon
Tuesday, April 23, 2013
In days before March, Saturday mornings found me
Indulging in one of my favorite vices:
I’d fry up some bacon along with my eggs,
And savor a couple of glorious slices.
But since I’ve been Sparking and reading food labels
For nutritional perils that aren’t very nice,
I’m still eating bacon, with one egg for company,
But now I am quick to say, “Thanks, just one slice.”*
*It may seem silly to love bacon so much, but we are big fans of Burger’s bacon, which is produced in California, Missouri and available here in the Midwest. It is so flavorful! I can get my “bacon fix” with one slice of bacon for a cost of 45 calories, 3.5 g of total fat, 7.5 mg of cholesterol, and 175 mg. of sodium. To me, it’s worth it! And it has been a wonderful discovery to learn that I can be satisfied with just one piece.
