I’m on a mission to find snacks that do not spike the blood sugar but have a little more excitement than raw carrots or celery. Voila! Epic Bars come in flavors like Bison Bacon Cranberry, Chicken Sesame BBQ, Beef Apple Bacon, Turkey Almond Cranberry, Pulled Pork, Lamb Currant Mint, Salmon Sea Salt Pepper, Venison Sea Salt Pepper and Wild Boar Bacon. These gluten-free snacks are shelf stable and perfect to throw in one’s purse or briefcase. Aside from the varieties containing fruit, I did not see any added sugar in the ingredient lists.
I buy my bars at Whole Foods or online through Amazon. One of these times, I might try buying directly from the Epic web site since they carry the full product line in all of their flavors.
Epic also sells bone broth, animal oils like duck fat, “bits” in the various meat flavors and Hunt & Harvest Mixes which they bill as meat-centric trail mixes.
Vegetarians may be quaking in their non-leather boots, but these products are paleo-friendly and the animals are humanely raised on open pastures. The Epic web site maintains that their healthy lands invite birds and animals, “hold ground water, build topsoil and sequester carbon from the atmosphere.” That’s all well and good, but they also make a fantastic Bacon snack bar.
