We can neither confirm nor deny that it is what’s for dinner, nor can we tell you exactly where it is.
But we do know this: humans need between-meal snacks.
Even back in the whatever-lithic age, one cave person would say to another, “Hey, I know it’s only heat-orb-half-set in the afternoon, and we ate lunch a couple ago, but you think I could get my hands on a little hunk of mammoth? I’m feeling peckish.”
Okay, maybe saying “need” gives the wrong impression, because, sure, strictly speaking, humans don’t need to micro-dose nutrition in order to survive. But doing so might just help us feel a little better.
Could be an energy thing. At 3 in the afternoon, a cup of coffee won’t wake the brain up, but it might make the coffee drinker jittery and ruin their sleep later that night, so they’d be better off opting for something high in protein rather than caffeine.
Could be a matter of stale-mouth-taste. You know what we mean: it just hits you sometimes that your mouth tastes vaguely like the thing you ate for lunch–or, more specifically, like the worst parts of the thing you ate for lunch–and you’d prefer it not to anymore.
Could just be that biting into something gives a person momentary respite from the dread that assaults us all when the work day starts to feel long yet still contains a multitude of hours before clock-out time.
Whatever the case, these Baja Vida Beef Sticks fit the bill. They’re gluten-free and they have just 1 gram of sugar and 2 grams of carbohydrates per stick, while being packed with an impressive 9 grams of protein. In other words: all the good stuff for your body and none of the bad (except sodium and some other stuff; look, if you want a meat-based snack that doesn’t need to be refrigerated, you’re gonna end up with some weird stuff in there, okay?)
So get some, and enjoy a responsible between-meals snack.
