I’d never have gotten this without a special offer. It’s too expensive (for me) but the quality is amazing. If you make a lot of money or are independently wealthy? Stock up and donate some cash to send these out to kids, k?
There are ‘vacuum-sealed’ packages. Most are meat, nothing has gluten. I use the tag ‘paleo’ a lot but I’m not Paleo. At my best, I’m stricter-than-paleo. When I’m not, I eat sugar and drink alcohol. I don’t eat grains.
(apart from rice when my belly’s upset; oddly, white rice is very calming to a lot of bellies, mine included)
This Seasonal pack (can’t say for others) is dried meat, ‘berky’ (dried berry-covered jerky) and chicken jerky. I haven’t eaten the Paleo Krunch ‘bars’ but I’ve had Paleo Krunch Cinnamon Swirl cereal. It’s amazing but it’s also like what I make, only I don’t use honey and cinnamon. It’s like they stopped food processing it before it got to the mush necessary to form into bars. And when it forms into bars you get: Paleo Krunch bars (see above).
The story behind Paleokits is this Steve feller coaches at-risk kids. He’d mix up dried meat, dried fruit, seeds and nuts for snacking and pass them out. They’re delicious but you really can do this at home. If you’re like me and don’t have a dehydrator, you can dehydrate in a low-temp oven and save a ton of money. It takes time, though, and it’s not vacuum-packed. My fruit and nut bars must be refrigerated and eaten within about 5 days or things start growing on them. It’s not much of a problem cos I’ll eat them all if given half a chance.
My overall review is: If you can afford it, buy it! If you can’t, make it!
I support this insert they included. I’ll rewrite it to Lily-Perfection below.
Eat unprocessed food.
Choose food that grows,
nothing packaged or processed.
Support local farms when possible.
Vegetarians, skip the meat:
Eat animals, marine life, vegetables, nuts, seeds,
and fruits. Eat plenty of healthy fats from
[grass-fed, not grain-fed] animals, fish,
coconut, avocado, olives and cold-pressed oils.
Incorporate traditional, nutrient-dense food,
fermented vegetables [like sauerkraut], organ meats,
and homemade [stock].
