See, yesterday I quickly popped into Landmark's ThreeSixty in the hope to find some Paleo snacks I could have before my mobility work shop.
- lean and healthy
- easy to transport
- easy to eat, not messy
- salty protein
Heck yeah, I was looking for high quality beef jerky.
What's wrong with nuts? You wonder. Nuts are actually fine but many of those packed snack nuts contain sugar , soy and have been roasted in seed or palm oil. And even the healthier plain dry roasted options are still like Paleo Pringles to me. Once you pop...
I have only found one beef jerky brand in the entire store and it seemed that it mainly consisted of sugar and flavour enhancers.It was around HKD 20 for a small serving my friend's schnauzer midget puppy could inhale it by accident. Also many of "healthy" dried fruit snacks were over-priced and over-sugared.
As if the great Paleo honcho above took pity with my snack plight I discovered today that Groupon is now offering a dehydrator for real cheap, meaning HKD 399. In Germany the mid-range models cost from HKD 500-700.
The interweb is full of Paleo recipes for several types of jerky, as well as fruit leather roll-ups and dried apples. After several hours, the food is dried out. While it’s optimal to switch the trays around for even drying, you could just leave it on overnight and have it be done in the morning—doesn’t get much simpler.
So this is the Groupon deal:
A. $399 for 1 x DIY Dried Fruit Maker – Food Dehydrator（$688 value）
B. $778 for 2 x DIY Dried Fruit Maker – Food Dehydrator（$1376 value）
C. $199 for 1 x Jerky Gun（$299 value）
Size: 24cm X32cm
Temperature range；35-70 degree Celsius
1）Make dried vegetables and meat in a flash
2）Effortlessly make dried apple/mango/banana, dried veggies and beef jerky
3）Hot air circulation system enables quick drying
4）Temperature control allows drying of all types of food
5）Made with food grade plastic – completely safe and toxin free
Not only can you make healthy snacks, you can also have your own trail running/ hiking mix, post and pre-workout food. No more snack label reading.
