The Perfect Keto Snack
The Limón con Chile is best characterized as flavorful in its spice profile rather than a purely hot jerky or spicy jerky. Talk about a crave worthy high protein snack. The best part is, it is Sugar-Free, Carb-Free, Gluten-Free and Keto friendly.
Mini Meal Prep Guide Snack #1: Yes, we said Snack!
Do you have time to eat 5-6 meals a day? It has been proven to boost metabolism, but who has time for 6 small meals. We always have time for a snack that is easy to grab-n-go or eat right at your desk while you’re working.
Add People’s Choice Carne Seca Limon Con Chile to a small snack bowl of sliced Red and Orange Peppers. This makes for a beautiful and tasty snack. We even have a fun drink tip you can pair with this perfect snack mix. Water with lemon.Did you know by simply adding lemon to your water it becomes a probiotic?
Typically you may not even consider adding a cut up vegetable to your meal prep. You may think that the weekly veggie tray at work will take care of your veggie needs. Veggie trays do not always have nutrient dense options and may not come often enough. Take the benefits of daily Red Bell Peppers for instance:
More than 200 percent of your Daily Vitamin C Intake
Packed with Vitamin B6 and folate
Support healthy night vision
Packed with Antioxidants
When you pair veggie snacks with lean protein you have a nutrient dense snack. That is why we encourage jerky! The Carne Seca line by People’s choice is inspired by the diverse culinary tradition of Downtown Los Angeles and its many migrant groups. Taste the flavors of Northern Mexico and the Southwest region of the United States. Focused on bold flavors, fresh ingredients, and simple techniques, our Carne Seca Beef Jerky features all natural ingredients and a simplified process to showcase the deliciousness of traditional Carne Seca Beef Jerky. Initial kick of heat from cracked red pepper blends into the richness of guajillo chili powder, cracked black pepper, and sea salt; finishes with a touch of lemon twang. Our goal is to celebrate the natural meat flavor of the thick cut beef jerky.
