Our lives can change at any given moment, and that has never been more apparent to me than it is today. Working from home everyday with a full family in the house, slowly getting used to social distancing and making sure we have the right amount of food and basic necessities to last a few weeks were never things I thought I'd have to deal with. I always try to to feed my family a well balanced diet but most healthy foods are perishable. Trying to choose healthy, storable snacks can be very tricky since most packaged goods contain less than favorable ingredients.
Last week, when I went out do that big grocery haul, I was so relieved to see my order from Paleovalley sitting at my doorstep. I few months ago, I decided to sign up for a subscription of their Grass Fed Beef Sticks after seeing them online. I thought these snacks would be perfect for my busy family who's always on the go, it didn't even cross my mind that these would be perfect for staying in as well. Here are the 3 main reasons why I originally signed up:
100% Grass Fed Beef, Free of Chemicals and Pesticides
These are not your average gas station jerky - Paleovalley sources its beef from cattle farmers that take pride in the rearing of their animals. Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised only on natural grass pastures in the United States. This ensures a humane and happy environment for the animals. They are continuously moved to various grazing pastures and are never exposed to harmful herbicides, pesticides, or hormones. They also practice rotational grazing which has added environmental benefits, as the soil is naturally rejuvenated by the animals' activity, eliminating the need for chemicals.
Great Source Of Essential Vitamins, Naturally Fermented
Paleovalley Beef Sticks are far more nutritionally dense than their store-bought counterparts since they come from grass fed beef. They contain vitamins like B12, B6, zinc, and phosphorus. Plus, they're a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids. They're flavored using only organic spices, and the unique fermentation process ensures that they stay shelf-stable, without the use of any harmful chemicals. This precaution also means that the sticks contain probiotics, which aid digestion.
High Source Of Protein & Perfect On-The-Go Snack
Healthy and convenient are not traits that usually describe the same product, but Paleovalley Beef Sticks are a delicious way to keep you going between meals. Packed with 6g of protein per serving and come in 5 delicious flavors: Original, Summer Sausage, Jalapeno, Teriyaki and Garlic Summer Sausage. All are free from GMO's, gluten, soy, and dairy. They're the perfect snack to keep in your bag if you're on the keto or paleo diets, or if you just want to be more mindful of what you're putting in your body.
My family is signed up for a monthly subscription to a 4 pack of these (10 sticks per pack) which we have found to be the perfect amount for us. Knowing that we can always have a quick, reliable snack on hand has made committing to a healthy lifestyle much easier. Whether you're trying to stock up, are on a particular diet, or just mindful about your food comes from, Paleovalley Grass Fed Beef Sticks make it easy to stay healthy on the go or staying in.
