<h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Could bacon actually be good for you?</p></h4>
Bacon, the glorified breakfast staple so many of us have an undying love for. It’s true, most people start drooling as soon as you even mention the word, but aside from it’s delicious flavor, bacon is a great addition when following a ketogenic diet. It contains thiamin, Vitamin B-12, Zinc and Selenium all of which the body does not produce naturally. Zinc and selenium are antioxidants essential for keeping a healthy immune system. Also bacon does contain fat, but not trans fats which is the one we try to avoid.
<h5> It’s all about the protein:</h5>
Eggs are a perfect form of protein. Both the white and yolk of an egg are rich in nutrients - proteins, vitamins and minerals with the yolk also containing cholesterol, fat soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. Eggs are abundant sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper.. Eggs also contain Choline which is used to build cell membranes and has a role in producing signaling molecules in the brain, along with various other functions.
