About dementia and home made bacon.

This stuff is why I still love the internet and blogging after all these years:

“I’m a caregiver for my dad who has dementia, high-blood pressure,
reduced kidney function requiring a relatively low sodium diet, and an
overpowering craving for bacon. So, I started to experiment in making
myown bacon at home using those cryovac’d pork loins. I guess there is
an officially recognized criteria for bacon, so maybe I should call my
stuff something else…but it sure has a bacon look (nice and pink but
not raw, smells and tastes like bacon when it’s nice and crispy, but
has a lot less fat and sodium. So I now fearlessly make him BLTs and
bacon omlettes. He eats, is happy and healthier…and I like that too.”
