Bacon-Wrapped Cinnamon Apples (Paleo, AIP, Whole30)

 

They say everything is better with bacon, but I have to admit I am not a bacon lover. Actually the smell of it cooking in the morning makes me incredibly nauseous! Weird. Word.

 

BUT bacon-wrapped things make me very happy. One of the best restaurants in Chicago is called HB (stands for Home Bistro) in Lakeview and they have bacon-wrapped almond-stuffed dates on their menu that are nothing like you’ve had before. There’s also a heavy sprinkle of brown sugar, so they don’t fit in to my life anymore but I’m glad I enjoyed them when I did. In fact, there’s an excessive amount of foods I am so glad I imbibed in pre-AIP because I likely will never enjoy true nightshade-y BBQ, fresh picked corn elote-style with grass-fed butter and lime zest, caramel cheesecake, and Jeni’s Spledid Brambleberry Crisp! Whew – did I just make you second-guess this whole healthy eating thing? Don’t – because a life of health, happiness, and vitality is much more satisfying than momentary gustatory pleasure.

 

To make up for the lack of the above in my life, at times I choose to indulge… as much as Paleo & Autoimmune Protocol lets you indulge! Cheers to overcoming illness and inflammation while still enjoying some delicious food like these
