Bacon Was Involved

One of the fast food franchises (who shall remain nameless to protect the innocent, or is it guilty) has a bacon flavored milkshake (if you do a search, I’m sure you can find it). When I first heard this, I wanted one, bad.

Last night, I almost bought one. Just before buying I went on their website (just morbid curiosity). Gosh! The calories, fat, and saturated fat content would have my doctor up in arms. Not only that, the “bacon” is only bacon flavored syrup. Bleh.

Since I had bacon on the mind, I had to somehow find a reasonable substitute. I made a salad instead.

Iceberg Lettuce Salad

Nothing fancy (this was a spur of the moment thing after all). Iceberg lettuce, crumpled bacon (from the bottle), sesame oil, vinegar, and sumac sprinkled on top. My stomach was happy (no dairy), my conscience clearer (than if I went ahead with the milkshake), I’m guessing my doctor wouldn’t have to shake his finger at me, and I did satisfy my bacon craving. Whew!

My conscience: “Hands where I can see them, put that milkshake down, and step away!” 🙂

Enjoy and eat well.
