You’ve chosen the right adventure — but have you chosen the right meat for your adventure? The best non-GMO meats can elevate your summer shindigs — take a look at some meat products from Keller Crafted Meats that are perfect for the summertime!
THE ADVENTURE: A Backyard BBQ
It wouldn’t be summertime without a backyard barbecue party, some hot meats, and a few cold beverages — and if you’re going to be the host of the barbecue to end all barbecues, you need to do it the right way. Choosing the right ingredients should be at the top of your priority list — along with choosing the perfect apron to sport as you man the grill.
We’ve all been to a barbecue that only serves burgers and grocery store hot dogs — and by the time you make it through the buffet line, all of the burgers will probably be gone. You’re not too good to eat a hot dog — but do you really want to eat one? What is a hot dog, really? If you have to ask, you probably shouldn’t eat it.
THE SOLUTION: Non-GMO Sugar-Free Uncured All Beef Hot Dogs
Say that five times fast. Non-GMO Sugar-Free Uncured All Beef Hot Dogs from Keller Crafted Meats are hot dogs done right. They’re made of the highest quality Non-GMO project beef, organic spices, and no nitrites. Plus, they still have that classic hot dog texture and look just as great with grill marks. Hit ‘em with a little stone ground mustard and throw ‘em in an organic whole wheat bun, and you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite guilty-pleasure food without any guilt at all.
THE ADVENTURE: A Road Trip
There’s nothing that makes you feel young, wild, and free like a summer road trip — and no matter how far you intend to drive, you’re going to need some road trip snacks. The perfect mix of road trip goodies touch on all the best textures and flavors; you have to check the boxes of sweet, salty, chewy, and crunchy in some way.
Unfortunately, most people fulfill these flavor requirements with candy, chips, and “meat” sticks — most of which are packed with antibiotics, synthetic preservatives, and fillers that can send your road trip (and your digestive system) into shambles. For the sake of your body and your road trip, it’s important to find healthy snacks that satisfy your cravings, taste great, and treat your body with respect.
THE SOLUTION: Smoked Paleo Sea Salt and Honey Jerky
Beef jerky is a snacktime staple — especially on road trips — but not all jerky is created equal. Smoked Paleo Sea Salt and Honey Jerky from Keller Crafted Meats has similar flavor profiles to a traditional smoked jerky you’d find at the grocery store, except it’s made with lean grass-fed beef and without synthetic preservatives. This non-GMO beef jerky is naturally salty, a little bit sweet, and perfectly chewy — an excellent, protein-packed snack that will energize you and your road trip companions. Who knew road trip snacks could taste so good and be so good for you?
THE ADVENTURE: A Friday Night at the Movies
Remember when going to the movies didn’t cost you an arm and a leg? These days, it costs just as much to see the new Avengers movie and get a small popcorn as it does to gas your car or pay your energy bill — so it’s no wonder that younger generations are becoming skilled and experienced at sneaking goodies into the theater.
Movie snacks are irrationally and unjustifiably expensive — but you can’t head to the cinema and sip on water the whole time, and you’d be hard-pressed to smuggle in a bowl of chili without some sort of saucy mishap. So what’s the perfect blockbuster snack for your blockbuster film?
THE SOLUTION: Beef Candy
Let’s face it: candy is delicious, but it’s one of the unhealthiest food items you can shove in your mouth. Candy is extremely calorie-dense — not to mention it’s packed with sugar that can cause dental problems and lead to blood sugar spikes and dips. As for nutritional benefits, it doesn’t have much to offer.
Why not choose a movie snack that’s sweet, salty, and full of nutritional benefits? Beef Candy from Keller Crafted Meats is dry-cured in a mélange of salt, spices, and a just a hint of brown sugar — then it’s slow-cooked to perfection for optimal sweetness and tenderness. With no synthetic preservatives or antibiotics and compact, easy-to-open packaging that’s great for, ahem, keeping in your purse, you’ll have the perfect movie candy that satisfies your sweet tooth and does your body some good.
