I'd love to know the ingredients of yours and all the nutrition facts

This is from butterball's turkey bacon

Ingredients: (White Turkey, Mechanically Separated Turkey, Dark Turkey), Water, Sugar, Salt, contains 2% or less of Canola Oil, Sun Flower Oil, Natural Flavor, Sodium Erythorbate, Sodium Phosphate, Sodium Nitrite.

Looks like an awful lot of garbage.

1 slice of mine is
35 cals
3g fat
2g pro

The ingredients in mind are pork, water, sea salt, brown sugar

I'd be shocked if there is a person on the planet that would rather have a dog treat over this bacon. btw, why don't you eat all the yolks?
how much and how often do you eat bacon? how about eggs?

i usually make my egg muffin stove top, takes 5 min. english muffin in the toaster, i'll usually do a slice of cheese instead of bacon, quicker, one less thing to cook...

toaster on, english muffin in
egg fried on a hot pan, little oil, non-stick
flip and add cheese
english muffin toasted
voila...

i need my egg muffin to be over easy and still runny... ugh that yolk

i usually add some ground pepper as well after the flip

I'd say about 24 eggs a week and about 12oz one package of bacon

You assumed I get the turkey bacon you saw. But I don't. I buy only uncured turkey bacon. Minimally processed, no nitrate, no artificial ingredients.

Ingredients:
turkey thighs, water, sea salt, raw sugar, celery powder, paprika, onion powder, spice.

1 slice (28g):

30 calories
1.5g fat, 0 sat fat
cholesterol 25mg
sodium 180mg
sugar 0
protein 6g

Now tell me which one is better. Mine or your turkey bacon?
It took me a while to find this turkey bacon. It tastes ****ing good. I eat 8 slices every day for lunch.

For eggs, I buy egg whites in container. I buy organic cage free dozen eggs. I use half from egg white container and 4 whole eggs. Don't have to throw away any yolks.

You should be afraid of sat fat. Latest studies show sat fat from red meats is one of major causes for reduced life expectancy and cardiovascular diseases. Your body does need sat fat, but from healthy sources. FDA recommends 30gm of sat fat a day. I get about 20gm a day from nuts and eggs.

You're forgetting about calorie quality; one 1 carb from whole wheat is not equal to 1 carb of white wheat. Same with proteins and fats.

oh, that study that said red meat leads to more deaths but the meat eaters were fatter, worked out less, smokers, and drank alcohol. That study has already been refuted because of all the holes in it.

I highly doubt you'll even read this but here

soo, I'm still not sure why your bacon is better.

I have read the links you mentioned. But have you?

I think food is all about moderation. I like eggs myself just had 2 raw eggs in my shake, yummy.

I eat lean red meat almost every day (burger 96% lean or lamb). Each study will have its gaps. But look at healthiest populations like in Japan, people there don't eat much red meat. I'm an advocate of lean unprocessed red meats in moderation.

As far as the bacon, are you serious man? Yours got 35cal per slice, mine got 30cal with 6g of protein, yours got 2g. More fat in yours. Calorie quality of mine is way better than yours. We're after the protein after all. Right?

No, I get plenty of protein from other sources. I don't even consider the protein.

You can microwave eggs like that in a coffee cup too if you're in a big rush. 1-2 minutes

This works well. Spray some pam in that ****, throw in the egg, toss a little S&P, 1minute, boom.

You can cook your bacon for these sammies in adv too... just cook enough for the week and fridge em. Throw in the toaster oven with your muffin while you microwave the egg.

don't quote me but not only is microwaving something raw to cooked absolutely disgusting, i did read somewhere that you really aren't supposed to do that with eggs... too lazy to look for it so take it with a grain of salt
