When I went Paleo, I did research. I do research on pretty much everything. It’s in my nature. And if I’m going to completely change the way I eat, you can be sure I will be knowledgeable about what I’m doing.

One of my favorite foods is bacon. Unfortunately, a lot of brands of bacon aren’t Paleo compliant. Basically, the bacon has to be free of sugar and a bunch of other ingredients that make bacon delicious. Only a few organic bacon brands meet the criteria to be compliant with Paleo eating. Strangely enough, many, many Paleo recipes use bacon. Why? Because it’s delicious.

So what’s a Paleo bacon lover to do? Well, most of us buy the expensive organic bacon. But for many of us, that’s not enough. I know for me it isn’t. I found out jerky could be Paleo compliant. I’d never been a big consumer of jerky, but I started looking closer at it. Snacks are important on the Paleo diet, and particularly for me and others with autoimmune disorders.

What I found is many jerky brands have the same problems as the bacon brands. Too much sugar, too many other things I shouldn’t be eating. But then I found Oberto bacon jerky. I bought it, and I ate it. All of it – the entire bag – in one sitting. Because it was good! Sooo good. It tasted like bacon in all its salty goodness.


Now I don’t eat the entire bag in one sitting, but I do have the jerky as part of my Amazon Subscribe and Save order. It appears you can no longer buy it through the Subscribe and Save program, but you can still get it at Amazon. I’ve also found it at several supermarkets etc in the area.

Really…who couldn’t use more bacon in their lives?

Have you tried Oberto Bacon Jerky? What do you think of it? Tell me in the comments!
