Just saying the word bacon makes many hungry.


Itís an incredibly versatile food. It can be eaten on a burger if ready for a major calorie-fest. Conversely, It can be crumbled over a salad to be kind of healthy. But letís be honest. Nothing is healthy with bacon on it.


Or it can be made the star of the show by simply pairing it with eggs. No matter what, bacon is greasy, delicious and the most beautiful thing ever seen.


Anyone who wants to climb a tall building and scream at the top of your lungs, ďI love bacon,Ē can celebrate National Bacon Day on Saturday.


Why National Bacon Day is so belovedÖ


ē Itís amazing: It complements everything it comes in touch with, whether itís spicing up a boring salad or taking donuts to the next level. They say Midas has the golden touch, but it begs to differ.


ē Itís convenient: Look, thereís never enough time in one day. Between jobs, errands and friends, there are always struggles to find time to cook. However, when bacon is served as a meal, thatís not a problem. All that needs to be done is heat up a pan. The bacon will be ready in minutes, and the gnarly hunger monster inside will be sated. Itís a win-win situation for everyone involved.


ē It has superpowers: Bacon contains a surprisingly little-known nutrient called ďcholine.Ē Itís been known to increase intelligence and memory, fight Alzheimerís disease and protect the heart from developing lethal problems. It was never thought this favorite food could get any better, but then there are its health benefits. Thanks, bacon; itís the gift that keeps on giving.
