Primal Snack Reviews

Paleonola
Christmas and other gift-giving occasions for my family almost always involves giving food. Mostly because Adam and my dad are difficult to shop for and like packaged snacks. Also because primal pre-made goods are expensive so special occasions are a good way to justify not making it myself. Over Christmas we exchanged a few notable snack that we all really enjoyed. Here’s a run down:


Paleonola

I got Adam the Apple Pie version of Paleonola, available on Amazon. He really enjoyed it in a bowl of coconut milk. He was good enough to share with me and I thought it was a solid replacement for granola. It’s lightly sweetened with honey and has coconut and dried apple.
It’s a bit on the pricey side so we’ll probably reserve it for holidays and I’ve created an easy copycat recipe you can check out here!


RxBar

Rx Bar reviewI picked these out for Adam as a sweet treat. Dates are quite high in sugar but they are certainly tasty. With egg whites, nuts, and fruit they are definitely primal and a good pre-packaged dessert. With a high carb content and lower fat content I’d be worried about how filling they’d be as a solid snack or meal replacement. Fun to have around though and definitely affordable at $2 per bar.


Three Jerks Jerky

Three Jerks JerkyThis jerky is really incredible. It blows regular jerky out of the water. I’m going to have to do a side-by-side comparison of my go-to Krave jerky (which was on sale at Harris Teeter on Falls of Neuse this week!) to see how it stacks up. It’s made out of filet mignon which is very cool but also very expensive. Definitely a repeat as a gift, probably not as a staple as Krave is great at a lower price.
