Thursday's This for That! Bacon

If you are like me you want to be healthy and fit but don't want to give up everything you enjoy eating.  I have found many ways to continue to include some of my favorite foods in my diet by finding healthier options. I LOVE bacon! Though I don't eat it a lot anymore I still like to have it now and then. 
For instance I can have my beloved scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese wrap without feeling guilty, by choosing healthier options:

1 Egg & 2 Egg Whites                 VS     2 Eggs
1 Slice WW Cheese                    VS     1 Slice Regular Cheese
3 Fully Cooked Bacon Strips        VS     3 Strips Regular Bacon
Flax Wrap                                 VS     Flour Tortilla

Now were talking enjoying that same wrap for 7 points VS At least 14 points



One of my favorite swaps is something I have been eating for years, Fully Cooked Bacon! Some people are turned off by the idea (like my boyfriend who loves his greasy bacon)  but it is a great product! It tastes great, is easy and is healthier than frying up bacon on the stove. It also last longer and comes in a resealable container.  I have tried a couple of brands and my favorite is Oscar Mayer.  The idea is you don't need to cook it, you can throw it right into what you are cooking.  I however like my bacon crispy so I throw it in the microwave for 30 seconds before adding it to my scrambled eggs.  If you have never tried it then its worth picking up a box and checking it out. 


Have you tried it? Do you like it?

  1. I have tried it and LOVE IT! I hate to cook and the mess that Bacon makes, not to mention the house smelling like bacon all day, this is a no brainer for me.
