This carnivore diet bacon wrapped shrimp is the most tasty thing I made over Christmas holiday and I wanted to share it with you.This bacon wrapped shrimp recipe is perfect for a Keto or Carnivore Diet. This bacon wrapped shrimp is perfect as an appetizer for a Keto or carnivore diet that will impress guests and fill up the family. I love the beef bacon from Wellshire that is sold exclusively at Whole Foods. It is step 4 pasture centered smoked beef bacon that has so much healthy fat and layers of flavor. When they said they wanted to sponsor this recipe post I was so excited because I have been eating their products for years.
There are many reasons someone may choose beef bacon over pork such as cultural or religious reasons. People on a carnivore or Keto diet may want to reduce inflammation and feel better when eating mostly beef. Beef bacon is fall of healthy fats and essential proteins.
I only work with companies that share my values about quality food and animal welfare. Wellshire believes just like I do that we should all know what’s on our kitchen table.
That’s why they guarantee the Less is More promise…

Wellshire knows that ensuring animals are raised with dignity and care is important. They are very transparent and encourage customers to ask questions,
How are the animals raised and treated?
All the animals they use for meat are raised humanely, in stress free environments, free to roam on family owned farms. Wellshire is mindful of changes in weather, so animals are provided access to both indoor and outdoor spaces.
What do the animals eat?
All animals at Wellshire are fed an all natural, vegetarian diet. The animals’ diets include both wild and planted grasses, and grains. The animals always have access to fresh drinking water. There are no animal by-products, hormones or antibiotics in their diet.
How are the animals harvested?
The comfort of the animals, both during their time spent on the farm and during harvesting, is a priority for Wellshire and their partners. It is in the best interest of the harvesting facilities to continue ensuring the animals remain relaxed, as a stressed animal affects the quality of the meat. The animals raised for Wellshire remain under the regulatory oversight of the USDA from the time they leave the farm through harvest.
What kind of quality control does Wellshire have in place?
Independent, third party auditors monitor all aspects of operations at the farms, harvesting facilities and processors that make up our entire operation.
Wellshire Believes in Family:
Wellshire is all about family. That’s why we’re honored so many of you choose to serve your families our all natural and organic products.
They strive to incorporate a sense of family and community in every aspect of their work. From situating their offices in a repurposed farm house in southern New Jersey, to choosing to do business with family owned facilities and farmers who hold the same values.
Wellshire got its start in 1996, when our founder, Louis B. Colameco III, grew concerned that his children were eating over processed meats, packed with chemicals and no health benefits nor nutritional value.
Lou knew that to live well, his children must eat well. Keeping that philosophy in his mind and his heart, Wellshire was born.
Wellshire is committed to going above and beyond industry standards of natural and organic, and believe their products are the best representation of high quality, minimal ingredient, all natural meat products. You can find all their products at your local Whole Foods Market.
The Wellshire beef bacon is Step 4 on Whole Foods standards:
Whole Foods baseline requirements for our Meat department are stronger than most anywhere. If it doesn’t meet the standards, they won’t sell it.
- No antibiotics, ever. If an animal needs antibiotic treatment, it is separated from those bought by our Meat department.
- No added growth hormones through feed, injections, implants or any other method. (Federal regulations allow the use of hormones when raising cattle and lambs, but we don’t.)
- No animal by-products in feed, including feather meal or rendered fat.
- Beef cattle, sheep and goats must spend at least two-thirds of their life on pasture.
- No crates, cages or tethers permitted.
- Animal producers must meet our standards for how the animals are raised, transported and slaughtered.
- A traceable audit system is required that tracks animals from birth to slaughter.
- Required inspections for animal welfare at slaughter, using criteria and areas of evaluation developed by Dr. Temple Grandin.
Animal Welfare Certified Meats
All fresh beef, pork, chicken, lamb and turkey (except kosher turkey) in our Meat department is certified to meet 100+ animal welfare standards by the Global Animal Partnership. Founded in 2008, Global Animal Partnership’s tiered system not only gives you the knowledge to make informed food choices, it provides farmers and ranchers with a road map to improve their welfare practices.
