if you're like me, you probably love anything to do with bacon. 
good news!, bacon is actually pretty healthy. in moderation, of course.

- bacon is full of choline which helps increase memory & intelligence
- bacon is packed with b vitamins; including b12!!

cooking with bacon grease from grass-fed, wild animals is a healthy alternative to cooking with butter & oils. 
vitamin b12 is found in bacon grease & it is also essential for the human body. our body does not reproduce b12 naturally so try to get it any way you can. it gives us more energy & make us happy!

helpful hint: bake your bacon in the oven. it's a game changer!
