Slow Carb Spinach with Bacon, Garlic and Onions

Spinach is a staple for most people on the Slow Carb Diet, but plain old spinach all the time can get a boring rather quickly.  Here’s a quick little side dish I came up with to make the spinach a bit more enticing and possibly even the highlight of your meal.

  • 1 cup chopped, diced bacon


  1. Heat oil in a medium frying pan.
  2. Add onions and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 more minutes.
  4. Add bacon and continue cooking until bacon is cooked through.
  5. Add spinach in batches, and keep adding more as the spinach cooks down.  You can add as much or as little as you want.
