Mmm… bacon! I love everything about it! The smell, the taste… I will admit that that is one thing I am not willing to give up on my healthy lifestyle… And I do not have to! Turkey bacon does provide a healthier option but sometimes this girl has to have regular bacon. There are some things I have learned to look for. It is more expensive but for both turkey and regular bacon I look for nitrate free, preservative free…. And since I usually drink a shake for breakfast I do believe that bacon is great for any meal!
This 5 Ingredient Strawberry Bacon Salad is a perfect example of that! The sweetness of the strawberries and saltiness of the bacon, pair together perfectly! You can throw it together quickly! It is pretty enough and tasty enough to serve at an afternoon luncheon. I used to crumble the bacon but have found that breaking it into chunks is just fine! The original recipe called for toasted almonds but I often use what is in my pantry – pine nuts, almonds, pecans or walnuts! Just toast them for a few minutes in the oven, let them cool and enjoy! Add your favorite healthy vinaigrette or poppy seed dressing and you have a gorgeous delicious salad.
Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food! At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight! When menopause struck and things got totally out of control... My weight only went up not down. My muffin top turned into a bakery shelf. I desperately wanted to lose weight and improve my health. I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6's! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
