Finding great bacon for a true paleo and sugar-free diet is tricky. Then, finding something you can have on the go, at a moment's notice? That was darn near impossible. Until Pederson's came along with their pocket and purse-friendly hickory smoked bacon. That's right: you can have the best quality bacon around, ready to eat at any moment, with any craving, ready for any opportunity to nosh. This snack pack of fully cooked bacon, slowly smoked over hickory for amazing flavor, is your new BFF (bacon friend forever). ~
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Why dig the bacon out of the fridge and fire up the skillet when you just want a few bites of smoky salty pork goodness? Why indeed. All you need is to tear open this package from Pederson's. Take a deep whiff of the scent that makes grown humans swoon and begin to salivate, and then pull off a slice and start to chomp down on the sweet and savory humanely-raised pork. Smile, and then have another bite. This bacon is seriously amazing. Other brands of pre-cooked bacon that I've tried are dry and salty and just not that great. But this stuff is out of this world.
Why eat bacon out of a package? Simple: it's bacon. Why not eat it, when you can? Eat it as a snack. Eat it chopped up over a salad. Crumble it on some scrambled eggs. The hickory flavor is not "just" flavor. It comes from a slow smoking process over wood chips, imparting flavor and a hint of sweetness without any added sugar whatsoever.
This fully-cooked, no sugar added bacon is even Whole30 approved for those of you who like some periodic regimens in your paleo life.
Why Hickory Smoked Bacon snack packs are so good for you
It's all about the ingredients. Start with grain grown right on the Pederson's farm to ensure quality and healthy feed for the pigs. Those pigs roam and forage, never using antibiotics or growth hormones. Then, the meat is gently smoked using only salt over hickory chips until just the right doneness. After cooling, the bacon is sliced and put into packages just for you. That's it!
Here are some of the amazing ingredients in Pederson's Hickory Smoked Bacon:
Natural Humanely Raised Pork
Pork is one animal that we can all make a difference by choosing natural, organic, and sustainably-raised. The animal has a better life and the nutrition after processing is better for humans. It's just better all around. According to Pederson's, "Our pigs are certified by the Humane Farm Animal Care Program standards. This ensures they are raised with shelter, resting areas, and sufficient space to engage in natural behaviors!"
How to enjoy Hickory Smoked Bacon in snack packs:
Tear open the package and add it to anything that strikes your fancy. That's it. Chew a slice thoughtfully as you type your way through the afternoon slump, or chop it up for the perfect addition to any salad or savory dish.
