If there’s one thing Erica Wides wants you to know this week it’s that bacon doesn’t come from birds. It can’t. This week Let’s Get Real breaks down the food simulacra of ‘turkey bacon’. Not only is the “Franken-Foodiness” of turkey bacon and other products (see: Egg Whackers) not making you healthier, it’s probably going to make you more sick or kill you in the end. Tune in and find out why eating real is just better, if not tastier!

“People forget that bacon isn’t a product. It’s part of a pig . . . and bacon was traditionally a survival cut for poor people.”
