Don't want to make you too jealous but I am at this very moment eating a sandwich: local Norfolk organic smoked back bacon on artisan baked 20% wholemeal bread, organic salted butter, fresh baby spinach leaves and baby plum tomatoes sliced and the whole thing topped off with a dollop of HP sauce.

 

I've just eaten two and my description above is making me go back for a third as I type this...

 

World of Tanks is nothing when you have bacon to distract you.

Do you still actually fit through the kitchen door ?

I mean you realize that the terms "organic, artisan, fresh, and local" don't necessarily mean "healthy"... right ??

Dietary cholesterol has no impact on blood cholesterol.  The most unhealthy parts of that sandwhich are not the bacon and salted butter, but the bread and HP sauce.

That is great for you, my friend.

I never will understand people with ' food fetish ' however.

I think that constant eating and obsessing from food is disgusting.

But this is what I think.

 

Moment ago I did wake to this day myself couple of hours over noon.

Currently boiling two eggs and ate a banana.

Will succeed with this for long.

 

I eat only little and only when I am hungry.

I do not want to destroy my beautiful body.

 

 

Good Luck with your ' bacon sandwich ' , my friend.

I am slim, svelte and extremely sexy despite three slices of back bacon.

Bad news: Bacon, like other processed meats, could contribute to heart disease and some cancers.
study done by researchers at the University of Zurich found an association between processed meat and higher risks of dying from heart disease or cancer. Processed meat contains nitrates, preservatives that, when absorbed by the human body, convert into N-nitroso, a compound that could cause cancer. Also, a study conducted by Columbia University found a direct link between consuming cured meats and developing chronic pulmonary disease.

Sadly, like most things in this world, there's a study suggesting one thing, then another study suggesting the complete opposite.  Always consider the source and funding.

 

Nitrates certainly cause heart disease and cancer, but bacon does not.  Nitrate free, sugar free, pasture raised, organic bacon ftw :)

Pictures please.  We must have some visual images.  Some sort of on-line imagery, of this bacon would be helpful.  How delightful this sounds :)

For every scientist calling something dangerous and unhealthy there will be one calling it wholesome and good. The results depend upon who is paying the scientist to do the study. :bajan:

That sounds mighty fine, put some sriracha sauce on there and it could be categorized as one of those Vietnamese sandwiches with the pork belly.  For now though I'm enjoying something I can only get on Fridays and that's a beignet and a cubano con leche.

I want a cubano. So good I once had my wife bring one for me on a 1500 mile flight.

A "cubano con leche" - never heard of it. It hasn't managed to travel this side of the Atlantic (across and up a bit).
