Why Bacon Is Good For Your Blogging

What I found when researching the topic of bacon and its effects on the brain is pretty astonishing. 

For example, this from Psychology Today:

The salty and savory sweetness of bacon "could help stabilize blood sugar sufficiently to prevent mood swings, reduce anxiety, improve focus, and enhance coping skills."

I'm salivating. Pass the bacon, please.

Bloggers everywhere want fewer mood swings, less anxiety, and more focus. Who knew bacon could do all of that? We knew it all along, did we not?

So, let me break this down a little, okay?

Bacon Has No Carbs So It Won't Make You Sluggish And Drowsy

Bacon is a zero-carb food. Boom!

Carbs stimulate the production of serotonin and tryptophan, amino acids found in the brain. Simple carbs like those found in white bread, white rice, regular pasta, and potato chips cause a quick spike in blood sugar, followed by a drop that can leave you feeling tired after eating. 

Not good when you're trying to hammer out a 2500-word blog post. Hence, eating bacon is helpful for blogging because it won't make you sluggish and sleepy.

The Smell Of Bacon Is Uplifting

Science proves that odors influence involuntary responses in humans. For example, pleasant smells can decrease the heart rate and reduce anxiety. 

Many people have fond childhood memories of the family kitchen filled with the tantalizing smell of bacon cooking on weekend mornings. You might be like me and find the smell of bacon has a calming effect and improves your mood.

Bacon Is Fairly Nutritious

Meat tends to be nutritious. Bacon is no exception. 3.5-ounces of cooked bacon contains (8):

  • 37 grams of high-quality animal protein.
  • Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and B12.
  • 89% of the RDA for selenium.
  • 53% of the RDA for phosphorus.
  • Decent amounts of the minerals iron, magnesium, zinc, and potassium.

B vitamins help prevent infections and support or promote: 

  • cell health
  • growth of red blood cells
  • energy levels
  • good eyesight
  • healthy brain function
  • good digestion
  • healthy appetite
  • proper nerve function
  • hormones and cholesterol production
  • cardiovascular health

Bacon Has Heaps of Selenium and Phosphorus

Selenium is a powerful antioxidant and may prevent mental decline

Phosphorus helps to reduce anxiety and manages how your body stores and uses energy. It also aids in your body's balancing and use of B vitamins. 

You likely thought I used that headline - why bacon is good for your blogging - as clickbait. (well, maybe I did, just a little)

But, if you eat bacon in moderation, it's a healthy source of vitamins and minerals to help you remain calm, increase your brain power and focus, and balance your insulin levels.  

To continue coming up with and creating high-quality content that your audience will not only love but benefit from, maintaining a healthy body, mind, and emotional state are vital. And bacon can be one of the ingredients in your diet to help you do just that.

I would like to hear from you. What do you do to maintain a healthy body and mind, reduce anxiety, and increase your creativity and focus?
