Everything tastes better with bacon — including egg salad sandwich

I have to admit that this post is about “rubbing it in.” And I have my friend and UP Law batch mate Raffy Aquino to thank for the link to an article that makes “skinny blogs” so last decade.

Cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra says the obsession with a low-fat diet has “paradoxically increased” the risk of heart disease.

Other experts have added their voices to his controversial call to end 40 years of advice to cut saturated fat – which has been described as “the greatest medical error of our time”.

They claim the guidance has left millions of people at risk of developing cardiovascular ­disease and “led to the over-medication of millions of people with statins”.

The public could just as effectively protect themselves by eating “real” food such as butter, milk and cheese and adopting the Mediterranean diet. [Source]

That said, if you’re a fan of egg salad sandwich (we are!), turn it up a notch by adding browned and crisp bacon bits to the basic egg and mayo filling. The extra effort is well worth the delightful eating experience.

    I totally agree – it’s better with bacon! And that article… would love to “rub it in”.
    A couple of years ago, my doctor put me on atorvastatin (Lipitor). After 3 months, I told her I will stop taking it and will just supplement my diet with higher fiber. She asked me to minimize dairy intake as well, I just nodded but didn’t really do it. “Health-conscious” people might find that horrific but I really love my full-fat dairy products. I’d rather have all natural fats than low-fat versions laden with artificial sweeteners. The following year, she told me “you know what? more and more studies are saying that cholesterol is not really the problem…”
    I think the problem is not the food, it’s more of the inactive/sedentary lifestyle.

    • I agree. Where people used to walk, everyone rides these days. I remember a joke posted on Facebook. “You mean you ride to the gym to walk on a treadmill?” LOL The irony of modern life.
