Now you don’t have to decide. Get a bunch of great snacks mixed all into one! And get them pre-packaged into travel-ready packages that you can easily take with you without having to cook, prep or refrigerate.
Paleo Trail Mix with Jerky are great for hikes, camping trips, long road trips, mid afternoon snacks, healthy treats for kids and more.
The Macronutrient Run Down:
This high fat paleo snack contains a good amount of protein and fiber as well. Therefore, it will keep you full while hiking or traveling on the road.
Whereas some people look for lower calorie snacks, this higher calorie, nutrient dense trail mix provides more nutrition for your money. Plus, it takes up less space in your travel bag or backpack.
The 12-pack comes out to costing less than $4 per snack. On one hand, these trail mix packs cost more than your average paleo protein bar. On the other hand, their higher caloric content (with meat) may qualify them as a small meal. In this case, they look cheap. =)
Ingredients in Jerky Trail Mix:
Beef, water, brown sugar, spices celery powder, sea salt, dried blueberries (blueberries, raw cane sugar, sunflower oil), raw almonds, raw walnuts and raw pecans.
What About the Sugar?
These bars contain brown sugar and raw cane sugar listed under the ingredients. However, the amount of sugar per serving is minimal. At this amount, I consider it a good sweet tooth fix (if you want one). Plus, it can prevent snackers from eating other detrimental unhealthy snacks…
What I Like:
I also like the fact that these snack packs have bite-sized pieces of jerky. This can give people their beef jerky fix without having to buy the more expensive bags of dried meat. If you want an easy-to-eat snack that is not a paleo bar, you may like this. You can get your crunch, your chew, your sweet, salty and spicy all in one.
What I Don’t Like:
These mixes do contain sunflower oil. Not only is this seed oil not considered paleo-friendly, it is not healthy either. That said, each pack contains only a minimal amount per serving.
