Is bacon really Paleo?

Pork belly is paleo. Curing meat is traditional. So I supposed it is paleo. But just being "paleo" doesn't mean it's healthy to eat everyday.

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.

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.
