My wife and I have been paleo for 7 months and 90% of our grocery shopping is from TJ. One of our favorite products is the Uncured Apple Smoked Bacon.
We eat maybe 3 to 4 packages of this stuff a week but something recently has been concerning me.
All the paleo resources that I've read recommend eating only lean meats (if not grass-fed) due to the high amount of omega 6s in non-pastured fats.
Neither this bacon or any other bacon that I'be found makes any mention of pastured pigs.
I also see that in general, paleo people looovvve their bacon.
There seems to be something I'm missing here. Can someone clear up this discrepancy? Maybe that hogs are very different than cattle in their fat or what they eat?
Is it ok to be eating this much bacon?
We eat only grassfed beef (6.49/lb at TJ's) and omega 3 organic eggs (TJ's), wild caught salmon and wild caught shrimp.
