Trade Up Tuesday: Turkey Bacon

I guess breakfast has been on my mind because after our breakfast for dinner blog I started thinking about some other things you might Trade Up at breakfast. Today we take a look at bacon, yes, bacon because there is always a way to Trade Up.

Applegate Farms has really great producs with simple ingredients and completely free of nitrites. Some bacons are naturally gluten and dairy free but Applegate takes out the guesswork for our Market Street guests and lists their turkey bacon as casein, gluten and dairy free. Applegate Farms wins this week's Trade Up because overall Applegate has less calories, fat and sodium while providing more protein. Note that one piece of Applegate Farms turkey bacon is twice the size (grams) of one piece of Butterball turkey bacon.
