If We Don’t Have to Avoid Fat does that Mean Bacon is Good for Us?

I know its BLT season… we have them at least once a week when the tomatoes are fresh.

And, I know newly reported research says the 40 year attempt to get Americans to stop eating fat was generally misguided.

But bacon is still NOT good for us.  It is, as they say, a sometimes food I’d like to remind you again:

contribute to our general health knowledge, sometimes they are poorly done or incorrectly interpreted.

Our best defense against disease (& against occasional bad science) is a balanced diet.  That means a rush to consume high fat food because recent news says we can is as unwise as completely eliminating fats.

Your grandmother understood balance when she served simply-prepared, colorful, fresh foods. Your children understand when they stop eating when they are full, not when their plate is empty.  Keep it simple, everyone.  Keep it simple.
