The Power of Bacon
Ever wonder if there was any one thing that would cause a devout vegetarian to stray from the fold? Well, the one food item that seems to call their name and bring them back to the omnivore side is bacon. This little tidbit of information comes directly from a recovered vegetarian, or more accurately a “former militant vegan”; his words, not mine. This former vegetarian has started an internet blog where he talks of numerous other people who had given up meat for at least three years only to convert back due to bacon. It doesn’t surprise me in the least. There is nothing quite like the delectable aroma of bacon cooking, add that to eggs over easy, toast and a cup of coffee and you have a meal made in heaven. No wonder it has the power to change lives. Could this be the beginning of a new “food movement”? Will there be a mass exodus of tofu eaters right before the holidays? They say there is no one quite as adamant in their convictions as converts, or people who have gone without eating meat for more than a year.
