Beef Sticks As The Perfect Healthy Snack

Come on, everybody enjoys snacking every now and again. For some, snacking is a daily occurrence while for others it’s a once in a while treat. And actually, snacking isn’t “bad” for you, as long as it is in moderation and you make healthy choices! You also need to look deeper into the nutritional facts to find out if a snack is healthy or not. Many snacks are packed with unhealthy fats and added sugar. Even "fat-free" foods often contain lots of added salt and sugar.

Beef snacks have grown into an incredibly popular snack category. The only issue is that some beef snacks are quite bad for you. A lot of the popular brands that you might see inside gas stations or at the checkout line in grocery stores contain nitrates as preservatives, or fillers. The beef can be loaded with tons of sodium, msg and chemicals you’d rather not put in your body. The problem is, how do you know what ones are the good ones?

To make sure you’re getting a good beef stick, review the ingredients (even before looking at the nutritional facts). Are the ingredients all natural? Is the main ingredient beef? (You may chuckle at this question, but it’s one you should take seriously). Is the beef certified halal or kosher? In most cases if you can’t pronounce the ingredient, you probably shouldn’t be eating it. Is soy, dairy, or gluten in the beef snack? Is there unnatural nitrates or preservatives pumped into the beef stick with an artificial casing holding it all together? If so, you should look elsewhere. 

Trend diets have been enabling people to look into and find new snacking habits. The Keto diet requires high fat and high protein foods. Paleo Diets want you going for lean proteins. In both these cases grabbing a healthy, natural beef stick is perfect for a quick boost of energy that fills you up and keeps you on your diet (or living your lifestyle!)

It will benefit you in the long run to take the extra time to research your snacks. When snacking though, don’t just let it be a beef stick and nothing else. Fruits and vegetables are always a good choice. Try different combinations until you find the winning combo. Snacking with a beef stick and some veggies makes for a nice pick me up in the afternoon while at work. Whichever snack you choose, you’ll want to make sure you have some protein, colors and tasty variety. And as always, make sure to enjoy every bite!
