For those of you wrapping up the Whole30 challenge, you may have found it a little extra work to have snacks ready for road trips, hiking, or when pressed for time at work. While it’s pretty easy to get the general ingredients from a grocery store and throw something together, there are some companies out there aware of the Paleo diet and offering products to fill this niche.
Chris let me sample one of his supply and suggested I do a write-up for everyone’s benefit. The pack Chris had is one of the first that came on the market — Paleo Kits — and is quite popular in the CrossFit community. One of the nice things about Steve’s Paleo Kits is that your purchase also helps support the Steve’s Club charity. The pack I tried was the large size and had beef jerky, strawberries, and coconut. This serving was definitely on the larger side and was quite a substantial “snack”.
There is also another company called Primal Pacs that sells a very similar product. This particular company has the distinction of being “Whole9 Approved” for the absence of sugars in the beef jerky. They have a slightly different fruit/nut combo, and is priced about the same.
Either way, you can’t really go wrong. Both companies have grass-fed jerky without the usual crap (MSG, nitrates, etc.) and fruits without a bunch of added sugars. Chris said he likes to keep the Paleo Kits in his trunk in case of emergencies so he knows he has a compliant meal at the ready. If you frequently find yourself without a good food option nearby, you should look into picking some Paleo Kits or Primal Pacs up!
