Primal Pacs

        The Perfect Snack for Traveling, School, Sports, and Life!
These tasty little packages of beef jerky, macadamia nuts, and dried fruit are great!  Just this past weekend the boys (including my Dad), headed to our Grandparents for some good ole' deer and grouse hunting.  It was great to have something healthy, tasty, and portable for them to snack on in the woods. These great snacks provide great, grass-fed protein, healthy fats and nutrients to fuel every endeavor.  I highly recommend this great primal snack.

  • Organic grass-fed & finished beef
  • Dried fruit
  • Raw nuts
  • No preservatives
  • No grains
  • No gluten

"Primal Pacs are paleo snacks of grass-fed/finished beef jerky along with a balanced amount of dried fruit (mangos and cranberries) and healthy fat containing nuts like almonds and macadamia nuts. The Primal Pac brand also carries packages of just the jerky for those athletes and people on the go looking for a boost of healthy, nutrient dense protein.
We are promoted by Whole9Life as the “first squeaky clean paleo snack.” We pride ourselves on being one of the best snacks for traveling athletes and everyday people that want to make the right decision when it comes to their health. Our packs can be used as snacks or meal replacements when necessary. They are great for a post-gym snack to replenish muscles."

Wondering what's up with Grass Fed?  Primal Pacs provides some great information on why Grass Fed meat could be a much better choice for you and your family.  Also, check out their website for a great overview of the Paleo Diet:

" Why Grass Finished?
Quality Forages: Our animals are raised on pastures which are closely and intensively managed. This results in the animals always having quality pasture to graze. We plant special grasses to match the seasons, thus allowing production of quality grasses throughout the year. Many people I speak to have had a bad experience with grass fed beef, as most producers don’t recognize the importance of quality forage.
Lower Fat: Grass finished beef is typically lower in fat than normal commercially raised grain fed animals. Studies have shown that grass finished beef contains up to 50% less saturated fat, and as much as six times less total fat than grain finished beef. This results in a healthier product for your consumption. Our beef is raised carefully to provide a natural finish rather than the “forced finish” from feedlot beef.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA): Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a fatty acid that is found to be extremely beneficial to human health and may reduce the risk of cancer, and even have benefits in fighting growth of existing cancer. Studies have shown that the level of CLA is dramatically higher (up to 5 times) in grass finished beef than in traditional beef. In addition, studies indicate that the level of CLA drops dramatically when an animal receives any sort of grain supplement. This is a major reason our animals are carefully finished naturally, with no grain supplements, to assure you receive the greatest benefit from the product.
Omega 3′s: Omega 3 is a fatty acid which is essential to for human growth and development, and has been shown to be much higher in grass finished meat than in grain finished meat. Omega 3 originates in the green leaves of growing plants, so it makes sense that grass finished beef would be higher. Similar to CLA, the Omega 3 level has been shown to drop dramatically when animals are finished in a normal, grain finished situation. Thus, once again, the health benefits of grass finished beef are clear."
