National Jerky Day at The BariatricPal Store: We Have What You Need!
It’s always nice when you can join in a food celebration even while you are losing weight, and National Jerky Day lets you do just that! It’s today, June 12, but you do not need to limit yourself to jerky on this day. You can benefit from the nutrition and great taste of Meat Snacks any day.
The Protein Snack that Works for You
Each ounce of Meat Snacks has no more than 90 calories, and at least 14 grams of protein. They are low in sugar and total carbs. You can take them anywhere with you; they make great travel companions on planes and in cars, and are light protein sources to carry on hikes. You can also put them in your lunch bag. Meat Snacks are even great in recipes; sprinkle pieces on salads, or cook pieces into spaghetti sauce for Protein Pasta .
There is nothing wrong with beef jerky, but why not branch out a little? Try chicken and turkey jerky, or check out our blends with beef and some more exotic choices, including ostrich and elk. These meats are natural sources of nutrients including highly absorbable iron, zinc, and B vitamins.
The Flavors You Love
There’s a Meat Snack to fit your mood. Original and Natural flavors are meaty and traditional, while Teriyaki and Maple Brown Sugar give you a sweet and savory mixture. Applewood is a smoky, hearty choice, while Habanero and Spicy give you some heat in every bite. Also try Pepper and Buffalo Wing flavors.
All-Natural Means Nitrate-Free
It’s not all about the carbs and calories. Other health factors are important, too. Consider nitrates, which are known to cause cancer. They are in many processed meat products, including many brands of jerky. Not so when you choose all-natural jerky from The BariatricPal Store.
