Isn’t it true that bacon makes everything better? I bet I know what you’re thinking, “isn’t this girl a dietitian. Why is she suggesting bacon and potatoes – won’t this make us fat?”. If you didn’t get a chance to see my latest post on resistant starch, you can read it here. With regards to bacon – it’s a great fat to include in our diet – it’s just all about the quality of the bacon that we’re eating (which we will talk more about later). This is an absolutely delicious potato salad recipe that is so quick and easy to make – it is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
