Baconarium – Making the Best Quality Bacon with the Best Meat and Ingredients

Consumer Update

Let’s just get this straight right off the bat – not all bacon is the same. I know that might seem obvious, but just because we all love bacon, don’t think that buying generic bacon from the local supermarket is going to be much of a treat.

If you want a real treat, check out The Baconarium.

The Baconarium is a manufacturer and preparer of ultra-premium, handcrafted, artisan bacon. They were founded in 2016 with one goal: Making the best quality bacon they can with the best quality meat and ingredients.

They then make the bacon and ship it straight to their customers fresh. Customers get 9 different varieties of bacon from The Baconarium during the year. They have flavors such as hickory cayenne, maple bourbon, applewood black pepper and a vanilla espresso which is one of the varieties that they’re currently making. Other varieties they have also include honey siracha. It’s truly a unique flavor that you’re not going to see anywhere else.

The Baconarium uses heritage breed pork that is sourced from several family farms all across the U.S. It’s pasture raised and contains no G.M.O.’s.

As far as ingredients go, they use premium, locally sourced ingredients. Their curing process takes 11 to 18 days to make the bacon from when they receive the pork from their suppliers and then they ship it directly to the customers.

If you are interested in ultra high-quality food, whether it’s meat or anything else or if you are focused on extra healthy food such as pasture-raised, 100 percent organic, no G.M.O.’s, this is the kind of food you should incorporate into your diet.

Sustainable Agriculture Is Gaining Momentum

The non-GMO movement and protests against Monsanto garner most of the media’s attention in the agricultural news, but there’s much more happening. Many of the nation’s farmers are quietly switching to sustainable methods, and the cumulative impact on the environment is positive. It’s not only small farmers getting involved: Many Midwestern farmers with vast tracts of traditional row-crop land are also changing, which means sustainability is trickling up the chain to big brands like Kellogg’s and Unilever.

Common Environmental Problems With Big Ag

Corporate agriculture has much to answer for, and many of their practices caused severe damage to ecosystems across the country. For example, the use of chemical fertilizers to increase crop yields has harmed wildlife, and run-off is responsible for the dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico, where no aquatic species can survive.

Pesticides are similarly harmful, and they’re especially dangerous for bees and other pollinators. Reliance on chemical techniques for improving yields has made a royal mess of the land, but sustainable methods promise to help heal the wounds while maintaining a robust food supply for the country.

Preventing Erosion and Protecting the Chesapeake

One major cause for concern with corporate agriculture is its tendency toward monoculture; that is, growing only one single crop in a large area. While monoculture is well known for depleting the soil of nutrients and allowing certain pests to thrive, another side effect is it leaves barren soil for periods of time between growing seasons. After harvesting an entire field at once, the empty land left behind is far more susceptible to erosion by wind or water.

Such erosion is particularly harmful to bodies of water like the Chesapeake Bay. Farmers on the Delmarva Peninsula are working hard to plant more acres of cover crops to reduce erosion. Planting cover crops, like winter rye and clover, on a plot of land after harvesting the main crop is important. This helps prevent erosion, which in turn reduces chemical run-off and contamination of the bay. Composting vegetal waste instead of throwing it away also allows for future soil enhancement. However, this is only one example of a local sustainable farming effort that’s making a significant difference.

Sustainability Takes on Many Forms

There are many ways that agricultural businesses embrace sustainability. Large companies have the leverage to affect change by creating a market for organic products and rewarding farmers for using sustainable methods. They can also be great spokespeople to laud the importance of sustainable agricultural.

Stoneyfield Farms, for example, connects consumers to the farms where their yogurt ingredients are sourced to promote a keen interest in sound environmental practices and local farming.

Individual farmers also play a role in sustainability. In addition to amending their practices to include cover crops and less chemical fertilizer, they can also participate in carbon markets to offset their fuel usage. Small farmers can also keep a close eye on their supplies and practice the old “reduce, reuse, recycle” protocol in much of their work.

Many people don’t realize how current agriculture practices depend on plastic. The term “plasticulture” exists because farmers rely on plastics for many reasons. This includes soil fumigation film, irrigation drip-tape, and bulk seed supply.  However, some farmers are taking action to reduce their dependence. Some farmers make the eco-friendly choice to recycle their bulk bags and plastic films. With sustainable agriculture gaining momentum, it’s only a matter of time before more recycling options are available.

The Bottom Line: Sustainability Is Good for Business

Farmers large and small are making great strides toward increased sustainability in agriculture, and the results are truly working. There’s little doubt that people are becoming more concerned about the plight of the planet. As they continue to do so, they’ll seek sustainable products, and farmers will practice methods that do right by the land and bring in enough money to allow them to sustain their families — and that’s a win-win for all inhabitants of planet earth.

Virtual Reality for Dinner: How to Eat Whatever You Want Without Feeling Guilty

By: Kassidy Coleman

Just in case you haven’t noticed, we’re a little obsessed with virtual reality. It’s cool, it’s new – can you really blame us for loving it?? We’ve seen virtual reality dominate E3 this year, take over roller coasters, change the way parents can read to their children while abroad – all within the past few months. Seriously…virtual reality is changing everything. And now it might change how we eat.

Project Nourished consists of a group of thirty people in LA experimenting with how we eat food by using a virtual reality headset, 3D printed food made out of yeast and algae, and an aromatic diffuser.

Here’s how it works: You put on the VR headset which will then take you to a new environment. The aromatic diffuser releases the smell of different foods by using ultrasonic heat. Wrap the “bone conduction transducer” around your head, this will mimic the sounds and vibrations of chewing. A gyroscopic utensil (which looks a little too much like a pair of tweezers) is how you will eat your tasty 3D printed food. Then there’s a cup, which is probably the most normal thing about this (even though it is intended to mimic intoxication).

You’re probably still thinking, “Why would you want to wear a virtual reality headset while eating dinner?” It’s okay, even though we consider ourselves virtual reality fiends, this is still kind of weird for us to think about.

Project Nourished states that this could be used for people wanting to lose weight or have allergies, alternate reality dining, help boost morale for astronauts and soldiers, the possibilities are endless. Think about it – this technology could allow people with peanut allergies to “eat” a peanut dish. And um…what about eating whatever you want with literally zero calories? And how cool would it be to eat fictional space food on the moon? Okay, we still think the idea is a little weird, but hey, they are right – this could actually help a lot of people and be a ton of fun.

Smart Nutrition Monitoring

App Review

Did you know 380 million people suffer from diabetes and 1.4 billion people struggle with extra weight or obesity? Obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease are the first non-transferable epidemics. We know how hard it is to find the time to track what you are eating when you have a busy schedule. However, it is necessary to track what we eat before it becomes a problem as monitoring nutrition is the only solution to reverse these trends. The nutrition monitoring app, DietSensor is here to simplify the process for you.

DietSensor is a meal logging app that tracks what you eat and then takes it to the next level. The co-founders of DietSensor Astrid and Remy Bonnasse understood that monitoring food and nutritional consumption is hard if you have a busy schedule. They created the solution in the app, DietSensor. This innovative nutrition app makes monitoring nutritional data so easy that people can use it to change and adapt their eating behaviors for the better. It works hand in hand with the SCiO scanner from Consumer Physics. The scanner allows you to scan your food to find the total amount of carbs, proteins, fats, and calories. It works with any homogeneous food like meat and vegetables, as well as 400 other foods. Even better, it also works on beverages, meaning you can get accurate values on your intake. You can still use the app even if you do not buy the scanner. All you have to do is scan the barcode on your food or search for a specific food item in DietSensor’s database.

Ready to start making healthy eating habits? The DietSensor app will be available on iOS and Android devices this September. But to learn more now, you can head over to DietSensor.com.
