Unfortunately, I can’t get decent bacon or maple syrup on the island.
I’m certain this would be incredible: Bacon Jam.
Bird Dog pointed me to that recipe.
I read Bird Dog’s post right after reading about The Bulletproof Diet at Newmark’s Door. I have been losing weight here on the island by making two principle changes to my diet: I don’t snack much; and I eat a lot more fat, as a percentage of my calorie intake, than before. So while I don’t follow these Bulletproof type diets (see also paleo or caveman diets) slavishly, I do ascribe to eating less sugar and carbs, and increasing fat intake.
It’s been working for me.
