For this #ToastTuesday, we’re cravin’ bacon with a health-conscious twist. 🥓 We’re spreading our delicious #smallbatch Lifeway Farmer Cheese and blackberry compote on toasted sourdough and topping it off with a few strips of air-fried turkey bacon for a sweet/savory combination that cannot be beat. Our Lifeway Farmer Cheese gives this #recipe a boost of #protein and #probiotics. The blackberries add fiber and vitamin C. Throw in walnuts, honey, and fresh mint for added flavor, and you’ve got a masterpiece on your hands. Is this bacon you hungry?

Studies have shown that reduced diversity of healthy gut bacteria during early years is associated with an increase in food allergies during school-age years. In addition, kefir made from whole fat milk helps absorb key nutrients such as Vitamins A, D, E, and K. Vitamin K is important because it helps your bones absorb calcium.
