According to the nutrition database (http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fats-and-oils/7186/2 vs http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/pork-products/7358/2) and/or cronometer.com there's a pretty significant difference between the two. The weird... (more)

I believe that traditional rendering of pork would include other parts of the animal, therefore you would be getting more than just fat (Jimmy Hoffa parts). This is for a commercially prepared product. If you are just taking bacon drippings it... (more)

What's the nutritional difference? How does the fatty acid profile differ? I'm sure someone can pull up a decent study - the USDA food database doesn't distinguish, of course.

If I bought a jar of sauerkraut, but it was under-fermented, I mean barely sour, does it make sense to leave it out of the fridge for a while to continue its fermenting? It wasn't pasteurized.

Hi guys! I was wondering about bacon! It's clearly something a lot of people who eat paleo eat! Is there a certain type to eat/not eat?? And presumably it's best to not eat too regularly or is that mainly up to how much you feel is enough?

Nitrate/nitrite-free is a gimmick, don't bother. A little sugar for the cure, completely fine! It's much more important that the actual meat be good quality, rather than focusing excessively on the cure used.

I have been frying my eggs and bacon for a while now and am beginning to question, like many others, just how bad it is for my health (oxidation, etc). What could I make for breakfast that would be equally as filling without frying?

First, frying is not bad, set the stove to medium low and let it heat up slowly. You will have more than enough heat to cook the eggs you do not need to go all out. Second, Try hard boiled eggs or cooking in the oven.

Eat until you're full. If that means eating 6 eggs and 6 pieces of bacon, go for it. Don't be afraid to change up your protein either. Eggs and chopped steak is also delicious (and lower in sodium & preservatives than bacon).
