With all these fat lies to sort through, what is a good snack bar to eat?

When you go to the snack bar isle at your favorite supermarket, there is a common theme.  Bars packed with grain-based carbohydrates!  If you are an informed consumer
Epicand are following the latest in body health then you know that snacking on carbohydrates like these are a sure way to expand your pant size and clog your arteries.  So what is a person to do?  Thankfully, there are some options and this post will cover one of them that has double benefits.  The good folks at Epic were nice enough to create an environmentally responsible, humane, and healthy solution to snack bars.

With products from Beef Habanero and Cherry, Bison Bacon and Cranberry, Turkey Almond and Cranberry, Lamb Currant and Mint, to Liver Beef and Sea Salt, these bars are sure to satisfy even the most picky of eaters.  Epic set their sites on doing this right starting with the living animals.  They partner with ranchers that are keep on the most humane of environments where turkeys are free to forage, pigs wallow, and buffalo roam.  Because they are all grass-fed and graze on pasture, they create a regenerative effect on the earth and help ensure we keep our soil rich and where it belongs, moisture where it belongs and keeps demand of fossil fuel low.

The biggest reason why this snack bar ends up on our page however is the health benefits!  Grass-fed meats are loaded up with high levels of omega-3 fats which are the good fats!  Eating them improves your heart health and reduces body inflammation which is the exact opposite of what happens when you chow down on the bars in the supermarket isle loaded up with grain-based carbohydrates.  These bars instead have high levels of vitamin A and E and antioxidants which along with their healthy doses of good fat leads to the development of lean muscle tissue and wards off a long list of health issues.

Did we mention they also taste amazing!  Ok, if you don’t like liver, you might not like the liver one, but we are certain one or more of the flavors will appeal to you.  They are not hard and chewy like jerky, they are really pleasant to eat and hold up well during travel.  Next time you are looking for something good to snack on, choose a bar that will help your health out while you eat it, not one that will shorten your life.
