I’d like to welcome my new Defiant Health podcast’s latest sponsor, Paleovalley, makers of absolutely delicious grass-fed beef sticks, healthy snack bars, and other products.
You know that we are extremely picky around here and insist that any product we consider has no junk ingredients like maltodextrin, carrageenan, carboxymethylcellulose, sucralose or other additives that have potential adverse health effects. You will not find any such unhealthy ingredients in Paleovalley products. And all Paleovalley products deserve the Defiant Health stamp of approval because they contain no gluten, grains, soy or added sugar. In fact, I find Paleovalley products among the cleanest of any in their category . . . and they are—truly—irresistibly delicious.
When I first tasted their grass-fed beef sticks, I was taken by surprise at how delicious they were. These beef sticks are made from 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef raised in the U.S.A. by family farmers focused on using rotational grazing practices and maintaining pastures free of chemicals and pesticides.
One of the habits I urge everyone to get into is to include a fermented food product at least once, if not several times per day, in their lifestyles. I urge you to learn how to ferment your own veggies, just as generations of humans before us have done. But in a busy world, it is sometimes convenient to resort to foods that have put natural bacterial fermentation to use—including in meats. Unlike nearly all other beef sticks available, the Paleovalley grass-fed beef sticks are all naturally fermented, meaning they contain probiotic bacterial species. I especially liked the Jalapeño flavored sticks, as they add to your intake of capsaicin that has positive effects on your microbiome, as does the garlic in the Garlic Summer Sausage. And, of course, all their products are gluten-free.
Paleovalley grass-fed beef sticks are available in 5 varieties:
• Original (0 carbs)
• Jalapeño (0 carbs)
• Summer Sausage (0 carbs)
• Garlic Summer Sausage (0 carbs)
• Teriyaki (2 carbs and gluten-free)
They also offer 2 flavors of pasture-raised turkey sticks: original and cranberry orange. But I’ve got to admit: my favorites are the grass-fed beef sticks.
Paleovalley also has Super Food bars that come in Dark Chocolate Chip and Apple Cinnamon. And they’ve recently added Lemon Meringue. I’ve tried them all and I found them irresistible. Low-carb, of course, with 8 grams net carbs per bar, well below the limits that I advise for health and weight management.
