The ketogenic diet and bacon – are nitrates safe?
Are the nitrates in bacon safe? So, the consumption
of heavily processed deli meats has been linked
to cancer due to the nitrate content. However,
grass-fed, non-processed meats are significantly
healthier. So, if your diet is rich in antioxidants
from vegetables or supplements, many toxins
can be actively removed by the body’s own
detoxification process. Keto diet foods high
in antioxidants include:
berries, green tea, black tea and coffee,
cocoa powder, red wine, egg plants, artichoke,
garlic, sauerkraut, broccoli, Brussel sprouts,
kale, watercress, spinach, pecan nuts, spices
such as cinnamon, vanila beans and ginger
root and eggs.
