Peanut Butter Honey Almond and Chocolate Coconut Peanut Protein Balls
SimplyFUEL Protein Balls helped fuel the 2015 MLB World Series Champs, the Kansas City Royals. Sports dietitian, Mitzi Dulan created them with a goal of creating a snack with the ideal ratio of protein, carbs, and healthy fats for sustained energy and to be a satisfying snack. Add these to your pack as a change-up to your usual on-the-go fuel sources.
Chocolate Coconut Cashew and Blueberry Almond Tart Bars
Rowdy Bars founder, Kellie Lee was on the hunt for new functional, clean ingredients to help her digestive issues and found the Yacon Root, a prebiotic and natural sweetener in these bars. Prebiotics basically “fuel” the probiotics in your gut, leading to better digestive system. These are excellent both as a sustained energy source and to help keep your digestive system in balance.
Louisiana Red Beans & Rice
Backpacker’s Pantry are back again and this time you get to treat yourself to a taste of the Bayou! Their easy to prepare Louisiana Red Beans and Rice will have your taste buds singing. Just add two and a half cups of boiling water directly to the pouch and wait twenty minutes. You may consider adding in a chopped up jerky stick if you’d rather have a bit more meat in your meal (hint, hint).
Pearson Ranch Jerky
Elk Hickory Snack Stick and Venison Hickory Snack Stick
One of the favorite things to have in the Backcountry Fuel Box is a good source of protein, and the Pearson Ranch Snack Sticks fit the bill perfectly. They use some nontraditional lean meats, like venison and elk, to bison and wild boar. Pearson Ranch meat is always produced from animals with an all-natural diet and free roam lifestyle on their SW New Mexico ranch that sits at 7,800 feet.
