I love this recipe because it combines healthy animal fat with nutritious green beans and mushrooms. The balsamic adds sweetness and a depth of flavor the compliments the dish well.
Over medium heat, add bacon to a pan and cook. The fat of the bacon will begin to fill the pan. Once bacon is cooked, remove bacon by placing in a bowl. Add green beans and mushrooms to the fat in the pan. Allow these to cook in the bacon grease until al dente (about 7-10 minutes or so). Add balsamic and reserved bacon in to the pan and cook for about another minute to infuse flavor. Serve warm.

Here is a wonderful healthy and nutritious whole wheat pancake recipe I love to make on the weekends. I usually make extra to freeze so I can simply reheat a few and have a quick breakfast during the week. I prefer to use fresh ground organic wheat flour with the whole grain (found at my local farmers market), raw unpasturized non homogenized whole milk and raw pasture raised butter (also found at my local farmers market), as these ingredients are much more nutritious than their conventional counterparts.
Mix dry ingredients in bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in wet ingredients. Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients to mix. Stir until just combined, its ok if it's still lumpy. Heat frying pan over low/med heat. Pour desired amount into pan and flip when edges turn light brown and bubbles in the dough stay open after they pop. Serve with butter, honey and/or pure maple syrup. I like to combine them all together and drizzle over the top of the pancakes.
