Don’t Be A Jerk-y!


Or at least, don’t EAT poor quality jerky!  You are, after all, what you eat!  (Have you ever thought about that?  How the food you eat affects your cell structure – and in turn ultimately are the building blocks of  who YOU are?  Deep thoughts…)

You want to make sure your jerky is MSG-Free, and Gluten-Free as well as a quality source.  Are spices an issue for you?  Anything that says “Natural Flavors” = dangerous, and most likely are a hidden MSG source.

It’s important, especially when traveling to be able to have a quality protein source on hand – as most of the time you can find some quality fruit to get you by!  Especially if you’re eating Paleo, or AIP (Auto Immune Protocol), you need to have a majority of your calories in good fats for your brain.  Pack some avocados, some coconut oil, and some jerky!

Here are where we get some of our top favorite jerky in this family:

Steve’s Paleo Goods (we like the grass fed stix and Steve’s Paleo kits as well)

US Wellness Meats (the plain sticks are AIP friendly!)

Golden Valley Natural Organic Beef Jerky (we get these at Vitacost, black pepper and BBQ are my family’s favorites!)

Please do share if you’ve come across some other great options!  (I will recommend lots of things from Steve’s Paleo Goods…  my daughter loves their cinnamon granola, and I just bought her some more bars!)

May I also just say that I’ve been thankful for my close relationship with Jesus?  I AM so thankful for His unfailing love for me, even when I fail PLENTY.  These challenges in my life have brought me closer to the One true God, in a way I never imagined.  I’ve learned a lot about my strength in Him and through Him.  He has never let me down, disappointed me or “not showed up” when I needed Him most.  He points me in the right direction, blesses me with people who have helped me get fight for my health.  He hears my cries, knows my pain, and has a purpose in it all.  He is my best friend!!!

“For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.”

Galatians 1:12
