Bacon is one of those foods that I’ve really missed since being diagnosed with my gallbladder problem. Truly, there’s no substitute for the taste of bacon.
I’ve tried turkey bacon, which tasted like artificial junk. Maybe it was just the brand I bought, but this stuff didn’t look like bacon and tasted like a science experiment.
So, I was extremely happy to discover that Canadian bacon is MUCH lower in fat than regular bacon!

I tried Hormel Canadian-Style Bacon, which only has 70 calories and 2.5 grams of fat in 2 slices. ONLY 2.5 GRAMS OF FAT - AND IT’S BACON. (Bonus: It’s also gluten free!)
This isn’t a “diet” food. It has great taste and was easy to cook. It is higher in sodium, but hey, it can’t be perfect. I wouldn’t eat it every day, but it’s definitely a welcome break from my Cheerios and oatmeal.
If you’re trying to eat a low-fat diet, choose Canadian bacon over regular bacon. (This can also be helpful to remember if you’re going out to breakfast!) It’ll save you from eating a ton of unnecessary fat and still let you eat foods that are full of flavor.
