Did you know studies show: Unhealthy fats can raise your risk of high cholesterol and heart disease? About 650,000 Americans die from heart disease each year - that's 1 in every 4 deaths. Limiting how much of the saturated fats, trans fats, and cholesterol you take in, promotes heart health.

Turkey bacon is better for cholesterol. It contains lower amounts of 'bad' fats and is less processed than regular bacon, and has a lower glycemic index. This causes foods to release sugar into the body more slowly, and lessens the risk that your cholesterol levels will be raised.  Turkey bacon has roughly 25% fewer calories and 35% less saturated fat than pork bacon. However, it's still a relatively high-calorie food, with 30 calories per slice — more than half of which comes from fat. While turkey bacon may be lower in calories than pork bacon, you should still eat it in moderation to be healthy, but it is a great healthier treat once in a while.

Remember it's not about depriving yourself of delicious food, it's about being mindful of your choices, portion sizes, and coming up with healthier alternatives that are just as good if not better. Thus, our mission is to not only guide you to improving your physical health but also create a healthy mindset.
