Turkey Bacon? Really?!

Is turkey bacon OK? Up to about 3 months ago, I always ate turkey bacon for breakfast with my egg white and Kale omelet then switched to real bacon and, of course, I liked it. Now after Thinner Next Year, I am eliminating my piece of real bacon, but I wonder if turkey bacon is OK. It is fake food, but does it hurt?

Turkey bacon -- don't fool yourself. Turkey bacon is still a processed and high calorie, high fat, high sodium meat. It is a WEE bit healthier than regular bacon, but not nearly enough to give you a green light (both are low in nutrients). My advice is to eat it in moderation for sure. Treat it as if it were bacon...and appreciate it for what it is -- NOT THE BEST FOR YOU!
