Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a fantastic winter-time recipe.  Brussel sprouts are a classic fall-winter vegetable and cooking it up with the chicken stock and bacon makes for a really nice winter flavor.

This recipe is loaded with good fats from coconut oil and pastured butter along with tons of antioxidants from the sprouts, cabbage, onions and garlic.   These veggies are rich in sulfur compounds that have profound detoxification and anti-aging effects in our system.

Be sure to get organic bacon to avoid the toxins that are in industrial meat.  Meat that is labeled as “natural” is not good enough.  “Natural” labeled meat is most often fed genetically modified grains that are loaded with pesticides and herbicides.  These chemicals make their way into the meat and into our bodies.

My favorite bacon is deer (venison) bacon followed by grass-fed beef or pastured turkey bacon.  You can find some great grass-fed bacon varieties through US Wellness Meats.
