That’s it – Saturday morning runs around and as soon as Mom hits the floor from upstairs she heads to the kitchen to make coffee. Now I don’t mind snoopervising that part but if she doesn’t hurry and get it done and move on to getting out the frying pan, I’ll let her know…………….I’ll start the magical chant “MAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMA” until she opens the refrigerator. THEN it’s ON baby – she puts that bacon in the frying pan and pretty soon the aroma fills the downstairs and wafts UPSTAIRS and wakes Dad up and he’s there with me WAITING………WAITING FOR THE BACON.
That’s my Saturday. Yep – it’s pretty much like that. Mom was sent some interesting info by a friend last week about bacon………….you may have read it too.
Bacon in a healthy diet? You bet, Dr. Ramsey says. “As a flavoring, it can be used to get people to eat plants,” he adds. Another plus: Around 30 percent of the fat from bacon gets left in the pan.
Happiness perks: Bacon has oleic acid, a nutrient linked to lower depression in women. And a bacon-and-egg-breakfast gives you a double whammy of choline, which can help reduce anxiety. Bonus points if you use bacon from pasture-fed pigs — it has depression-fighting vitamin D.
Go for: Smoke-cured meat to cut down on salts, nitrates and other preservatives.
OK I’m assuming when this doctor says “it can be used to get people to eat plants” he means plants like green beans, spinach, and other stuff that humans eat that when you add bacon, are all of a sudden MUCH YUMMIER than without it???? Who knows. Point is, the “HAPPINESS PERKS” I’m all for. So is Mom and so am I. At my age I can use all the PERKS I can get. Wonder if Mom cooked a bunch of catnip and added bacon if I’d REALLLY get happy???? Hmm……FOOD for thought!!
Bacon DOES make me happy…………….Now I know why!!!
Make someone happy……
fry up some bacon!
