Forming a new, healthy habit can be difficult, but February is much better than January in that regard, as it is the shortest month of the year, four perfect weeks.
My only goal in January was to get through it in one piece, which I completed with only a few hiccups. But now it's time to step it up, not only for me but for my whole family. My husband and I agreed that our diet needs to change.
We spend so much time ensuring that Jayden and Sophie have balanced nutritious meals. We somehow forget that even though we aren't growing kids we need to start eating healthy too. After a few weeks, our three meals are looking greener, leaner and more delicious.
This highlighted an even bigger problem, our unhealthy snacking. Our days are long and our kids love snacking but I needed to find nutritious snacks to replace the fake ones, full of sugar and empty calories that seem to be the only option in our grocery store.
After a quick search online I stumble upon Paleovalley, who seems to offer powerful potent supplements for everything along with Beef Sticks. I was intrigued, I've never bought beef jerky before mostly because I never knew what was actually in it, and that freaked me out.
With so many good reviews and Paleovalley's conscious approach to food, I wanted to know more.
The "100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks" caught my eye, since we are trying to eat more consciously and find new sources of protein. Paleovalleys beef comes from 100% grass-fed cows raised only on natural grass pastures in the United States and are never exposed to harmful herbicides, pesticides, or hormones.
My husband will love the 6g of protein in each stick, and I love all the extra vitamins; A, B, D, E, K, zinc, and phosphorus. They're a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids and the powerful antioxidant Glutathione. These sticks pack quite a punch for a quick no fuss needed snack.
If I wasn't already adding three boxes to my cart, the fact that they use a unique fermentation process that eliminates the need for any harmful chemicals. The added benefit of probiotics, which aids digestion definitely convinced me to add another box to my cart.
And like every single product from Paleovalley they are free from GMOs, gluten, soy, and dairy.
A few days later our new healthy, nutritious high protein snacks were at our door. I told the kids it was a surprise for them, hoping that the excitement would make them like the taste. As they ripped open the box and pulled out the Beef Sticks I crossed my fingers hoping that I would like the taste too.
Jayden and Sophie love my Teriyaki Chicken so I let them try that flavor first. A few minutes later they ran back into the kitchen with two empty wraps asking for another one. Phew!!
I couldn't help myself and tried the original flavor, and loved it! My favorite has to be to the Garlic Summer Sausage whereas my husband finishes all the Jalapeno ones. With 5 flavors to choose from we all have our favorite flavor, no more fighting over salt and vinegar crisps
I can't believe how easy it was to find the perfect healthy snack, and the whole family can't get enough. And Paelovalleys subscription means they arrive at our door right when we need them and we saved money signing up too. Win, win!!
Snacking time just got a whole lot better with Paleovalley's 100% Grass-Fed Beef.
