Bacon and pineapple pair very well together. Now, any time I see bacon in a recipe, I’m half-inclined to add pineapple too (or vice versa). Chili was a no-brainer. Of course pineapple and bacon would be great in chili! This recipe packs quite a bit of punch for not having any nightshades in it, even if you take the AIP option and omit the black pepper.
Struggling with thyroid disease?
Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? by functional medicine practitioner Datis Kharrazian is single-handedly responsible for my improved health over the past few years. It introduced me to the connection between autoimmune disease and lifestyle factors like diet at a time when my doctors were telling me there was nothing wrong with my thyroid even though I had high antibodies. This book gave me the information I needed to get the right tests ordered and seek proper treatment. It’s a must-have guide for anyone who has already been diagnosed with thyroid disease, who is at risk due to family history, or who strongly suspects they may have it but isn’t sure where to start. I can’t recommend it enough!
