Okay, so this isn't exactly a suprise. Bacon and eggs is a standard primal friendly fare in my house. When I'm in the mood for eggs, I usually have them with bacon. Not just any bacon mind you. Make sure you are getting a good quality pork product without nitrates, preferably free range, and without a lot of added preservatives or ingredients. Usually the uncured varieties are a place to start.
My version usually goes something like this:
3 slices bacon
1 clove garlic
2 c chopped greens
1 tsp hot chile powder
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp honey or maple syrup
salt and pepper to taste
(sprinkle of cheese if you eat it, gorgonzola is great on greens, as is feta).
Cook three slices of nitrate free bacon in a skillet. (This anywhere from 15 to 21 g of protein, depending on how thick your slices are.)
Remove bacon from the skillet, and fry your eggs in the bacon grease.
Remove eggs and add to the plate with the bacon.
In the same skillet with the remaining bacon grease, saute onion and garlic briefly. Add the greens and salt, and saute until wilted. Add chile, vinegar and syrup/honey. Remove from heat once cooked through, and sprinkle with cheese if using.
Add greens to the plate.
Have this with a side of blueberries topped with coconut milk and a few walnuts if you like.
Got some concerns about the bacon grease? First, you'll have to get over the idea that fat is your enemy in the primal lifestyle. It isn't. The idea that fat is unhealthy is a made up fallacy that has been passed on by the government for some 50 odd years- all along, our health declining while we cut out the fat and got on the processed food bandwagon. But that's talk for another day.
Here's some food for thought from Rebecca at the Herbwife's Kitchen
"Funny thing is, according to the USDA, lard contains more monounsaturated fatty acids (think olive oil) than saturated ones. Here’s the fatty acid breakdown for one tablespoon of lard: 1.4g polyunsaturated; 5.8g monounsaturated; 5g saturated. (For reference, a tablespoon of butter: 0.4g polyunsaturated; 3g monounsaturated; 7.3g saturated.) So even if you buy the “saturated fat is the devil” theory (and I don’t), lard is not unhealthy."
