  • Depends what you mean by bad?

    If you want optimal health and to thrive then yes...but if you are fine being the way you are then no.

  • Have you tried turkey bacon? I love it just as much as regular bacon. However, DH groans when I cook it! HA!

  • I will have to try turkey bacon..thanks! I would say that i am pretty healthy and eat well but bacon is my weakness. Funny thing is i used to be a vegetarian (10 years) and as soon as i fell pregnant i craved chicken and bacon so i started eating them again.

  • Turkey bacon is horrible! lol :)
    If you're only having a couple pieces, you'll be fine. My grandpa ate bacon 3-4 times a week and sausage the other days. He was 93 when he passed away and other than the pneumonia that took him, he was healthy as can be.

  • Ooooooh, I LOVE turkey bacon.. it's definitely not the same as real bacon. But I still love it, especially when it gets a little charred in the fry pan.. yum
