I am not amongst those who get tired of turkey. Every year, I have a few turkey sandwiches. This year, I sliced the turkey extra thick and the cheese extra thin along with Miracle Whip on whole wheat bread. Usually, I put spinach on my sandwich, about six leaves thick all over. But, the spinach was down to one bag in the store, a bag that left a lot to be desired. So, I used the salad mix. Spinach on my turkey sandwich is much better.
Delicious with a glass of milk
If I still had dressing and gravy, I would still be in the mood for it, still enjoy it every bit as much as I did the first bite. .
On to tilapia and bacon
For years, I did not eat bacon because I was avoiding the fat and nitrates. Now, I eat bacon judiciously. Today, as I was browsing internet articles, I was surprised by information about the lesser dangers of bacon as compared to foods we might choose instead of bacon, thinking those substitutes were ultimately better than bacon.
Since the media has convinced us that eating omega-3 is more healthy than Omega-6 and that fish is healthy, I already knew the dangers of farmed fish. I refuse to eat the farmed fish from China, but there are health dangers in farmed fish right here in Alabama and in your state, too. A few months ago, I searched in vain for homegrown, farmed fish. Then, I read how unhealthy farmed fish from anywhere is for us. So, I decided not to eat farmed fish.
Yes, I know that the chicken I eat is far from the best food for me. Read THIS article to see how you can justify bacon on the basis of Omega 3 and Omega 6 content.
While I am not such a purist that I avoid bacon, I am mindful of what I eat....sometimes. Okay, most of the time. But, as we all know, little slips can sabotage our health.
Another egg, another dream.
Are you one of those who tires of turkey dinner after the first meal? Do you have a favorite way to eat leftovers? Do you eat tilapia or bacon? Were you aware of the elevated Omega 6 level in farm raised tilapia?
