I get a lot of questions asking me for healthy snack recipes, and I have to admit, it’s often hard up with them, so I wanted to share with you this amazing “pre-packaged” snack that’s both healthy and delicious.
As Paleo and the real food movement grows, there are more and more food companies producing pre-packaged foods for us that’s supposedly healthier than the traditional chemical-laden junk we’re used to. But how do you tell what’s actually a good, healthy “pre-packaged” food and not just junk in disguise?
For me, Sophia’s Grass Fed Jerky Chews is as healthy and Paleo as it gets for something that comes in a bag – I actually found these around three years ago, and I can’t believe it’s taken this longer for me to write about it!
This is lightly flavored pure grass-fed beef without any sugar (disguised in any form, although if you want a bit of Paleo sugar in your jerky, then there’s a flavor for you), MSG, preservatives, or any other type of junk. Even purists cannot find fault with these!

Just take a look at the ingredients and let me know what you could possible find offensive!

Are the Jerky Chews Tasty?
I tried the original and the mild flavors. These are very thinly sliced beef pieces doused with delicious spices and flavors and then dried really well so that no preservatives are required.
They’re flavorful without being overwhelming, and give your teeth a chance to sink into something to tear.
Who Makes these Jerky Chews?
Sophia Dubrovina started making these many moons ago in her own kitchen before moving back to the Bay Area and partnering with Brandon Natural Beef to make the jerky chews we eat today.
And she goes to my climbing gym!
