Good News! Bacon Sandwiches Can Help Cure Hangovers
The greasy breakfast is a classic post-imbibe trick, and as it turns out, there’s scientific data to prove it. The BLT is a perfect food to help your body break down the effects of alcohol faster. The protein and aminos in bacon and the carbohydrates in bread are exactly what you need – in addition to LOTS of water – to begin to get your toxin levels down to normal.
The same study also proved something else we all know – Cooked bacon is nearly irrestible…
” ‘The smell of sizzling bacon in a pan is enough to tempt even the staunchest of vegetarians. There’s something deeper going on inside. It’s not just the idea of a tasty snack. There is some complex chemistry going on. Meat is made of mostly protein and water. Inside the protein, it’s made up of building blocks we call amino acids. But also, you need some fat. Anyone who’s been on a diet knows if you take all the fat from the meat, it just doesn’t taste the same. We need some of the fat to give it the flavour.’ She explained that the reaction released hundreds of smells and flavours but it is the smell which reels in the eater. “Smell and taste are really closely linked,” she said. “If we couldn’t smell then taste wouldn’t be the same.”
Is this the best news ever? If you think so, stay tuned, cause this summer, ManMade’s makin’ bacon from scratch!
