High-Protein Snacks for Low-Temp Winter Sports

Posted by Savage Jerky Co. at

Winter sports are no joke: Not only do you need to fuel your body for your workout, but your body needs extra fuel to protect it in cold temperatures.  During a winter workout — like for any workout — you need to fuel your body with the right nutrients and hydration. Winter sports include skiing and snowboarding as well as hiking, snowmobiling, ice fishing and, yes, even shoveling snow.  While you might not consider snow shoveling a “winter sport,” it is vigorous physical activity (call us Captain Obvious).

Protein Rich Snacks That Kids Will Actually Love (and Ask For)

Posted by Savage Jerky Co. at

Jerky is complex food, and we’ll be honest: It’s a competitive space. Lots of brands are vying for your taste buds.  That’s why we got into the jerky-making business.
