Bacon

Bacon is generally high in fat and sodium. But there are ways to choose a better option when buying bacon – look for those cuts of bacon with fat on the edge which can be cut off rather than cuts such as streaky where fat is marbled through. Regardless of fat contents, all bacon is high in sodium, so it’s a treat. Tegel’s smoked chicken rashers is a great alternative.
Focus on total fat, saturated fat, sodium.
