Attention meat lovers: Fortified Nutrition’s Harvest Sticks are about to be your go-to protein snack. Your July Fit Snack box included their Grass-fed Beef with Uncured Bacon and Organic Apple.
These ain’t your momma’s beef “jerky” old–these beef sticks are tasty and good for you, too.
Fortified Nutrition created their Artisan meat snacks with the idea that we need more grab-and-go organic, whole food snacks. Each Harvest Stick has a list of easy to read ingredients, and are hand crafted in small batches for the best flavor. This company aims to Bridge the Nutritional Gap, where diet meets lifestyle and nutrition meets flavor.
Perfect for after a solid workout or for keeping you tied over till dinner, these sticks are also 100% grass-fed beef, have no added nitrates, and are a great source of Omega-3’s – 5x more than the competition. Even better, the beef is from free roaming, pasture raised cattle. Oh, and it’s also gluten/GMO/ hormone/dairy/soy free.
Talk about a snack you can feel great about!

We love vegetable juice. We’re those people you see sipping from a bottle of a green juice while running errands, cooling off after an intense Vinyasa class, and scrolling though emails at work. What don’t we love about some juices? The added sugar and unpronounceable ingredients that plague so many juices! We also don’t like it when companies show you a “green juice” thats actually loaded with fruits and barely has any veggies!

This blog post was written by our partners, Enerchi Bites! We love them and hope you will too.- Fit Snack
Enerchi Bites is re-defining the energy bar. How often to you actually eat the whole bar?
Twin sisters, and co-founding duo, Annie and Marla, solved the problem of having to break off a piece and made it easy for you to have a couple bites and or share with a friend.
They also only the added good stuff to their products–superfoods like chia seeds and hemp seed protein, and real-food ingredients like organic unsulphured apple rings and sunflower seeds. Each ingredient adds value to the nutritional and taste profile.
Enerchi bites are free of soy, dairy, and nuts! All the bites are soft and chewable (imagine cookie dough texture) so they are kid-friendly and pre-molar teeth friendly. Now, you don’t have to hesitate to give them to your kids or include them in their school lunch boxes. Enerchi bites are the perfect mid-day snack, giving you not just an opportunity to re-fuel your body, but to also re-fuel your mind. Their zen logo represents the symbol of chi.
It symbolizes and reminds you to take a breath, and a moment to yourself to reflect, munch mindfully, and then voila, the chi, also known as, “vital energy” will flow through you with less effort, and more ease.
