Special Notes

When it comes to bacon, I personally do not advocate pork or pig meat and you can read about why that is in this article.  However, I do believe that grass-fed beef bacon or turkey bacon consumed in moderation can be a very healthy part of your diet.

One of the keys if you are going to consume bacon on a regular basis, is to be sure to have it with a lot of anti-oxidants such as salads as the high temperature cooking can increase the amount of carcinogenic heterocylic amines.  You can get grass-fed beef bacon and turkey bacon at your local Whole Foods or health food store.  If you have trouble finding it, you can also get it at US Wellness Meats.

These keto shortbread bacon bites are a unique and tasty fat burning recipe that would be great to bring to a party! This great side dish is full of healthy, anti-inflammatory ingredients and it combines the sweet flavor of a cookie with the savory bacon.

As I described above, it is always important to get the highest quality meat products and that is why I like getting 100% grass-fed beef bacon.  When cows eat grass, they have more omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which reduce inflammation in the body.

Typically, when I am consuming this, I am using a lot of herbs such as basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, etc.  The antioxidants help protect the body from dangerous chemicals that are created when we cook meat at a high temperature such as with bacon.

In this recipe, we included the cinnamon which goes nicely with the cookie to provide a powerhouse of protective antioxidants to help buffer the body from the carcinogenic heterocyclic amines we consume when we eat bacon that is cooked down to where it is very crunchy.
