Thank You Canada

Share This:

You may be wondering why we should be thanking Canada. Well, I can think of a couple reasons:

1. It’s the birthplace of B-film actress Shannon Tweed- As a young teenager, I’ll never forget my first time watching “Body Chemistry 4: Full Exposure” at 2 AM on Cinemax while staying at my grandmother’s house. I really enjoyed the um, cinematography. Yeah, that’s it. The cinematography.

2. Canadian Bacon- Honestly, I can’t eat an omlette without it.

Also known as “back bacon” in the US; what makes this type of bacon a healthier option is the fact that it’s made from the backside of the pig (leaner meat). Most bacon that is produced in the US is made from the pork belly, otherwise known as “streaky bacon.”

Looking at the nutritional facts: Jones Canadian Bacon (made by Jones Dairy Farm)

Canadian Bacon

Serving Size: 3 slices

Servings Per Container: about 3

Calories- 60

Total Fat- 1.5 grams

Sodium- 460 mg

Total Carbohydrate- 1 gram

Protein- 11 grams

Granted it’s a bit high in sodium, but I generally only use ONE slice which drastically reduces the total sodium per serving (which is normally three slices). Not to mention it definitely adds a little “zing” to an otherwise dull omlette. Either way it gets my seal of approval as part of a tasty breakfast.

(Note to self: buy stock in Jones Canadian Bacon ASAP. Also, e-mail mom to apologize for admitting the only reason you stayed over at grandma’s house every weekend when you were younger was to watch Skin-a-Max.)

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
