Can Beef Jerky be good for you??? Well I’m not sure about that, but what about a healthier version? My daughter and I both love beef jerky. Every single time we go to the gas station she starts in with the “But Mom Please!” ordeal. It lasts long after we leave the gas station too. If she gets some (we don’t make a habit of picking up Jerky at the gas station) she goes on and on about how good it is, if she doesn’t then we hear for miles how she doesn’t understand why she just couldn’t get a small bag. Don’t get me wrong, she eats healthy food all the time but nothing compares to jerky in her mind. I have to agree that I like it to. The problem is my teeth just aren’t what they used to be. Jerky can be a little tough for me to eat and some brands I just can’t eat at all.
So I got pretty excited when I received 2 bags of Jerky Direct’s Natural Beef Jerky Extra Tender to try out. I like the fact that the beef is raised without added hormones or antibiotics. We are not all out health freaks (although I wish we were) around my house but we do try to make healthier choices most of the time. Jerky direct does state the following….
- No Preservatives
- No Added MSG
- NO Nitrite
- NO Erythorbate
- NO Artificial Ingredients
- Only Minimally Processed
- Delivered in our jerky double pack
The first thing I noticed about the Jerky was how tender it was. Now I did order the Extra Tender so I wasn’t too surprised but I just didn’t expect it to be that tender. It did surprise me that something that had been made to be so tender could still hold the same consistency that a regular jerky has. It was great not having to struggle to eat it but to get that same satisfaction that you get from chewing on the tough beef jerky. The taste of the beef jerky was very satisfying for a mid afternoon snack. It had just the right combination of sweet, spicy and salty all rolled up into one.
The Jerky Direct beef jerky is reasonable in price compared to other Organic style jerkys. You can grab 2 for $12.00 which comes to around $1.84 per pound. The one thing you may need to know is you can’t find it in your local stores you have to order it from an independent distributor. Now don’t panic you can find her and all they have to offer on her website, facebook or twitter. They also have tons of other products besides beef jerky including buffalo steaks, fruit snacks and natural, gluten-free turkey pet strips (yes, even our pets deserve the best!)
She also would love to have you on her sales team. She makes money selling her favorite snack so why can’t you?? I even asked my husband if he would be interested in selling it and he looked at me and said “Well it really is good jerky”! I have not decided at this time to sell jerky (blogging has me swamped under) but I am thinking about it for later and checking to see if my hubbie really wants to do it.
