Swap Beer Nuts for Kosher Beef Jerky

There is nothing quite like coming home from a long days work and having a beer and some beer nuts. Personally, I am more of a beer nuts kind of guy than beer. As most of you may know, nuts can get pretty fattening, unless you get the raw, unsalted, no flavor and pasty white cashews. The nuts I usually go for are more often than not honey roasted or coated with some sort of sweetness that inhibit you from putting them down and before you know it the entire can, bag or whatever they came in is done!

Kosher beef jerky is not your only option when it comes to late night munchies. You could have some sort of fruit, but some say that fruit is not the answer either because even though it is fruit, it’s still packed with sugar and we have learned that sugar is the devil! You obviously don’t have to eat an entire cherry tree, but once you start it’s hard to stop.

The obvious answer is not to have anything before bed, as some say, at least three hours before bed. I don’t know about you, but I could never seem to do that. No matter how hard I workout, or how strict I keep myself during the day, I always need something to snack on at night. ¬†The bottom line is, everyone is looking for some healthy munchies, kosher beef jerky is the answer.

Kosher beef jerky is low in sugar and sodium and high in protein. You would be doing your body a justice by snacking on it! I know it sounds crazy having jerky has a snack, but it beats candy coated nuts or an ice cream bar. Granted we all need to practice self control, but if we did, we wouldn’t be having this¬†conversation!

Stay Healthy!!
