Healthy, because

Even smarter

The tomato-potato gratin with bacon and onions is an all-round balanced weight. Energy-supplying carbohydrates come with the potatoes, satiating and muscle-building proteins with the bacon and Gouda and vitamins with the vegetables. Especially the immune-strengthening vitamin C is absorbed through the dish.

Try turkey ham instead of bacon. It tastes similarly spicy and scores with less arachidonic acid, which can promote inflammation and thus diseases such as rheumatism in the body.
