This is always the time of the year where I tend to eat healthier to try and shed that winter coat. I’m a fan of doing keto style diets which still allows me to enjoy my favorite food group – BACON!

Farmer John Bacon is my go-to. Their products are high-quality and packed with plenty of protein to help me hit those macro goals.

While it’s important to eat healthier, it’s also important to have balance. I can’t count how many times I’ve burned out because I can’t eat what I want.

Farmer John gets that – they’re big on having a balanced mindset and approach, not deprivation, which makes them a perfect partner for this amazing recipe!

With the insanely cold weather we’ve been having, I have been in no mood to be outside grilling, so roasting these cabbage steaks in the oven was a no-brainer.

But as it gets warmer, I highly recommend trying this recipe out on the grills. The char you get on the cabbage is amazing.
