I love healthy snacks. I few weeks ago, I was sent some Simply Snackin jerky including a variety of dried beef and chicken snacks to try. At only 60 calories and packed with protein, they are great on-the-go healthy snacks. Simply Snackin snacks come in a great variety. So, what makes Simply Snackin’s Jerky different from traditional jerky? Here is what they have to say:
Simply Snackin uses only the the finest, all-natural ingredients and the best cuts of meat and poultry, slow roasted over time to create moist and tender meat snacks instead of dehydrated tough meat sticks. Simply Snackin uses only whole sirloin and whole chicken breasts. Each snack also includes up to 20% of the finest dices fruits and vegetables, spices, and cheeses without any artificial flavorings, colorings, chemicals, nitrites or fillers.
I was given the following to try:
- Dried Chicken Breast with Black Bean Salsa
- Dried Beef Sirloin with Apples and Cherries
- Dried Beef with Cranberries and Blueberries
- Dried Beef Sirloin with Pineapple
- Dried Chicken Breast with Italian Style Seasoning and Romano Cheese
- Teriyaki Dried Chicken Breast with Magoes and Papaya
The first day, I tried Teriyaki Chicken with Mangoes and Papaya. Delicious! Only 60 calories, .5 grams of fat and 8 grams of protein for a great after-workout snack. They are a little high on sodium at 290-310 mgs, but if you are only having one a day, I think that’s fine. Throughout the next 2 weeks, I tried each of the flavors. I’d say my 2 favorites are the Teriyaki Beef with Pineapples, and the Beef with Apples and Cherries.
My kids are picky eaters so they found the jerky just a bit on the spicy side, but I think many kids would really enjoy these as a snack. They are such a great alternative to chips or sugary snacks.
I think Kelli Calabreses, MS, Personal Trainer of the Year, and author of Feminine, Firm and Fit serves as a great spokesperson with this review quote:
Simply Snackin is the perfect snack. It’s convenient, flavorful, tasty, packed with lean protein, comes in a variety of flavors, kids will love them and most of all, it’s healthy. Getting a good quality lean protein in a convenient snack is rare to come by. Simply snacking meets all fo the criteria for a health filled one the go delicious snack.
