Make It This Weekend: Cabbage 'n Bacon
Gluten Free Dairy Free Paleo Keto
This dish has just a few ingredients but is big on taste. Cabbage is full of vitamins and minerals, is excellent for detoxifying, and it is one of the world's healthiest foods!
Bacon gets a bad rap, but when sourced correctly, and is unprocessed and free of nitrates and nitrites, it can be a healthy source of B vitamins, plus it can lower blood sugar. Pigs cannot release toxins however, so sourcing your meat from a pasture raised non-gmo source is incredibly important. Otherwise you are eating a concentrated source of all the toxins that animal consumed. Making regular processed bacon a big NO, but finding uncured non-gmo bacon... a big YES!
Fennel has numerous antioxidants and is a source of fiber. It adds a distinct flavor that gives the dish depth particularly when paired with paprika.
