My wireless internet is down, so this week’s post is coming to you from my ‘phone! Want to enjoy your favorite meat products but are trying to avoid nitrites and corn syrup? I have a HEALTHY bacon and pepperoni solution for you!
The first solution should be available at your local grocery store: Hormel has come out wuth an all-natural line of meat products (“Natural Choice”) that contain no corn syrup, preservatives, or artificial ingredients. I buy the bacon (pictured above) for $4/12oz., and deli Turkey slices for $3.50/12oz at my local Meijer (Busch’s is almost double the cost).
Hormel does not make all-natural pepperoni. The second option is only available online or in your local Whole Foods chain store. Wellshire Farms makes all-natural meat products that are also much healthier than regular brands. If you buy their uncured pepperoni in bulk online, you only spend $1.30 per pack of preservative-free pepperoni slices.
The Hormel Natural Choice products have a much shorter shelf-life than preservative-laden products, so they should be frozen if you like to buy in large quantities. The Uncured pepperoni is dried so it does not require refrigeration.
