2. Epic Jerky
We talk about Epic quite a bit in our article detailing the best Whole30 protein bars, but did you know that Epic makes jerky strips too?
Yup, Epic makes fantastic Whole30 jerky in two tasty flavors:
Note: There are actually a few more varieties, but the Wagyu Beef Steak and Smoked Salmon Maple jerky sticks are NOT compliant, as they contain honey and maple sugar, respectively.
Where to Get It: Epic jerky is available on the Epic website or in some brick and mortar locations (particularly health food stores).
If you need some beefy goodness, but don’t mind the method, Epic also offers beef-based bars and meat bites (which are basically shredded jerky pieces).
They even offer a Whole 30 starter kit, complete with an assortment of their Whole30-friendly bites and bars!
