Epic Snacks Unleash Your Inner Hunter Gatherer

epic snacks will unleash inner hunter gatherer trail mix 1
The folks over at Epic —the makers of protein bars with odd flavor combinations like bison with bacon and cranberry, turkey with almond and cranberry, beef with habanero and cherry, and lamb with currant and mint — have come up with another innovative snack idea for athletes, those on a paleo diet, and anyone who wants a satisfying bite to eat.

Epic looked all the way to our roots — to the time when people were still hunting and gathering to come up with its new line of snacks. The snacks contain two packets, one with beef jerky, and the other with a berry mix, nuts, toasted coconut, or a mix of apples and nuts. According to Epic’s website, each combo “is inspired by the foraging diets of our ancestors and each ingredient is full of rich cultural history.” The company looked for ways to balance sweet with salty, for a snack that is perfect for someone who is constantly on the go. It’s also full of good stuff like omega-3, vitamin B12, CLA, vitamin E and niacin. They’re also gluten free, soy free and paleo friendly. Plus, the beef they used is 100 percent grass fed and organic beef.

The 8 best protein shakes that are ready-to-go
These shakes come with all the good stuff, and none of the crap

With as busy as we have become as a society, we always seem to be on the go. This can make life challenging, especially when it comes to wellness goals. In a perfect world, you could hit the gym hard, crush a workout, then immediately refuel with a balanced, home-cooked meal. But, since life happens and we are always on the go, it’s not always feasible to take the time to actually cook up a muscle-building meal right after your workout. Whether you’re on the go and short on time, or just can't stomach a full meal after exercising, having a quick and easy, protein-packed option that doesn’t require kitchen time, is a helpful alternative to refuel your body and maximize your results.

This is where protein shakes come in handy. Numerous ready-to-drink shakes are available that provide muscle-building protein, vitamins, minerals, and calories to fortify your body after a workout. They offer the benefits of protein powders with the convenience of eliminating the need for a shaker bottle, or high-speed blender, let alone making a mess with powders. Simply give the bottle a quick shake, pop the top, and you’re good to go.

Trying to understand everything about wine all at once is an impossible endeavor. Wine is a beautifully complicated, ever-changing quiddity, and even the most decorated and prestigious wine experts in the world often find themselves confounded by its constant little surprises.

If you find yourself in the beginning stages of your wine education, just as in everything, you'll want to start with the basics. It's possible that up until now, you haven't put much thought into the several different kinds of wine there are, except for, say, red and white. But while there are obviously exceptions within every hard and fast rule, for the most part, wine can be broken down into roughly nine categories. Here we'll take a minute to break those categories down, explain what they mean, which wines fall into them, and, our favorite - how to drink those wines.
