Back to bacon - the mech way!

In a quest to start eating breakfast at home, thus avoiding the crap carbs and fat by which I may be tempted at work, I have fallen into a groove. These days, most mornings start with Fiber 1 Rasin Bran (disclaimer - I am employed by the folks that make this cereal) and Jennie O extra lean turkey bacon.

The turkey stuff is not an exact copy of what bacon lovers crave, but the stats are great. Each slice has 20 calories, less than 1g of fat and 3g of protein. I swear by the stuff. My only worry is the first ingredient on the label, "mechanically separated turkey". Sounds horrid and cruel to the turkey.

don't worry the Turkey is already dead when it is "mechanically seperated" :)
