Bacon Sautee

Non-paleo husband approved!
Bacon has been getting a bit of a bad rap lately in the paleo community.  Sure, it's not a health food, but it's damn delicious!  It adds incredible flavour to all types of cooking, it comes from one of the tastiest beasts that adorns us with pork chops, lard and rump roasts, and it has an incredible fat to flesh ratio that satisfies our salty fatty cravings.

The butcher I get my bacon from uses minimal nitrates in preparation, but I've also found another high end grocery close by that sells nitrate free.  It really all depends on how thrifty I'm feeling at the time of purchase.  It's also very difficult to find bacon that is sourced from pasture raised pigs, not factory farm raised.  Eating completely orthodox paleo can be very expensive and sometimes you have to pinch some pennies to save a little cash.

Tonight's dinner featured a lovely array of organic vegetables (red pepper, asparagus, crimini mushrooms, snow peas, garlic and lemon juice) and our lovely friend bacon.
