Along with eating clean and trying to keep my family eating healthy I also see a nutritionist. To make a long story short he runs a full blood panel and can see where my body is lacking things or has an abundance etc. Then we take this info and use food as a sort of medicine to address any issues. For example, my thyroid is a mess, my glutamine is extremely low, and my hormones are a mess. To keep it simple, my current diet now includes more cashews and less almonds. More pork, and less chicken. No wheat, gluten, dairy, soy or refined sugars.

How to Cook Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin
This simple bacon wrapped pork tenderloin recipe only required three simple ingredients. Pork tenderloin, bacon and honey. We will also use a little avocado oil to prevent sticking, so if you count that, then four ingredients.
- Did you know that you can get Whole 30 bacon? I like this Organic, no sugar added bacon from Applegate. Depending on where you live, you may be able to get it online here: bacon.
- For the pork tenderloin, I make sure to get organic pork, pork from a local farm, or pork that is
- Never-ever treated or given antibiotics or added hormones; no gestation crates or farrowing crates
- Certified Humane Raised and Handled
- Pork from animals raised by small independent U.S. family farmers committed to sustainable and humane practices who are paid a premium to follow strict raising standards.
- Lastly, the honey. My favorite is this raw unfiltered honey, and I get it online here: honey.
First, preheat the oven to 350.
While the oven heats up you will need to spray a little avocado oil in your cast iron pan to prevent sticking and heat on medium heat. Place your pork tenderloin in the pan and cook just enough to lightly brown all the sides.
Remove from heat and remove the pork from the pan. Wrap the bacon around your pork tenderloin with a slight overlay.
Carefully place the bacon wrapped pork back into the cast iron pan and drizzle with honey.
How Long to Cook Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin
We are making bacon wrapped pork tenderloin in the oven so go ahead and place the cast iron pan with your bacon wrapped pork in the oven and cook for 30 minutes. Roughly every 10 minutes or so open the oven and use a silicone type basting brush to baste the pork with the melted honey and bacon fat.
After 30 minutes change the heat on your oven to broil and broil the pork for another 10 minutes to give the bacon a nice crisp.
Let the pork sit for a few minutes and then slice to serve. We like to serve our baked bacon wrapped pork tenderloin with veggies.
Sometimes I add a little apricot glaze to my pork tenderloin. Apricot glaze doesn’t need to be complicated, to be honest I use natural apricot preserves to keep things simple. This is the one that I use because it has no added sugar or weird ingredients: apricot preserves.
