I see a few posters are on their way to an early heart attack from blocked arteries. Advise an immediate ECG. 

I have 2 slices once a week, am I at risk?

I have diabetes type II. Doctor told me to cut-down on carbs to control my blood sugar and to eat more fat for energy.

Last year, I was told I had gall-stones and that I needed to have key-hole surgery to take out my gall-bladder.

Doctor told me to eat less fat because of not having a gall-bladder (still have bile).

Now, the only thing left is protein. Lots of beans, pulses and lean meats. Eating a lot more bacon than I used to, but, it has to be back bacon and not the streaky kind.

All meat consumption results in an inflammatory response, especially processed meat - which scientists advise is unhealthy. However, two slices of bacon a week, providing  accompanying food is plant based, and makes up at around 70-80% of your lifestyle is probably not harmful to you, only the pig that was slaughtered to feed you.

Protein is overrated. By following a whole food plant based lifestyle, you will provide your body with all the protein you need - and would (scientifically proven) to reverse diabetes 2 as well. While meat protein is absorbed quicker, it's not essential. I'm sorry to hear about your gallstones, it was an unnecessary operation, IMO.

I remember my father telling my mum she was working too hard cooking the veggies for family meals. She only had to cook them, not boil the ByJesus out of them. Fond memories

Yes , many years ago my mum lived near to the biggest vineyards in England , when visiting I would buy the wine and she the lunch. On a board above in the restaurant was written ' For those that like their veg cooked a little longer just ask '.  My mum always asked.  Soggy sprouts  yuk.

At risk of going nutS! 😜 How on earth can one retain ones sanity in this godless county without some semblance of normality.  It's bad enough almost everything on the menu comes with rice,  or something made out of rice...noodles being one.  We are cultured gentleman of good stock and good character ( 😏 ) so denying us a filling healthy breakfast is insulting to say the least. 

I was being sarcastic............

First attempt a couple of days ago. I ordered the wrong size casings

from Artisans which wouldn’t fit over the nozzle of the grinder. So down to the local market to get the fresh ones. Cleaning them was a bit of a challenge.

Plenty of recipes on Google.

Don't leave us hanging....whats the recipe?

There is nothing better than getting out of bed in the morning with a strong smell of bacon wafting around the house, conversely there is nothing worse than getting up in the morning with a strong smell of fish, and the smell has a habit of lingering.

Ask her to shower then!   PML
