National Keto Day ++++ Delicious Bacon Recipe

January 5th is National Keto day. Most likely you have heard about this new style of dieting known as Keto. It seems to be transforming health of individuals with a high fat, low carb diet. In addition there are a number of benefits to this diet.

Weight loss and a healthy blood sugar are two major benefits of the keto diet. Those with type 2 diabetes following the keto diet have been able to improve their glycemic control. The keto diet can also improve an individuals cholesterol and blood pressure levels. Perhaps it would be beneficial for those with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.

The keto diet eliminates carbohydrates and forces the body to use up glycogen that has been stored. By doing this the body begins to burn fat. Healthy fats such as eggs, avocado, olive oil and sustainably raised meats are primarily what the Keto diet is built on. Other foods such as seeds, nuts, dairy and low carb veggies are included in the diet as well. There are other foods that can be part of the Keto diet as well. However, there are foods that should be eliminated to correctly follow the Keto diet, these foods include:

  • sweets, sugar, sodas, baked goods
  • grains, whole grains, and starches
  • fruits, starchy vegetables
  • hydrogenated oils, vegetable oil
  • diet foods, including low sugar, sugar-free, low-fat foods

One food that is accepted on the Keto diet is bacon. Bacon contains omega 3 fatty acids just like fish. These fatty acids can help protect the heart and keep it functioning. Choline is another nutrient found in bacon. Choline is important for memory and intelligence as well as to fight off mental impairments such as Alzheimer's disease 

6 Large Eggs
6 slices Bacon
3oz of your favourite, grated. Cheese 
pinch Salt 
pinch Black Pepper 

This recipe could not be simpler, and will have you in bacon and egg heaven before you know it! First up, grab a muffin tray and grease with a little oil to stop the bacon and eggs from sticking. 
Put one slice of bacon into each muffin slot, making sure that the bacon is wrapped around the sides and not on the bottom of the tin.
Crack an egg into each slot with the bacon. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on top, and top it off with a sprinkling of your favourite grated cheese (we used sharp cheddar). 
Get these bad boys in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F (180 C). When they emerge the will be bubbling with keto goodness. I love to eat these hot or cold, and often take cold ones to work for a snack in my lunchbox. A truly great little snack for boosting your fat intake! Let us know what you think in the comments.
**TOP TIP** If you prefer your eggs a bit more runny, cook the bacon in the muffin tin for 10 minutes first, and then crack in the eggs before cooking for another 10.
