There's nothing better than salmon. Rich but not overwhelming and healthy in all the best ways, salmon can do no wrong. EPIC, they of delicious protein bars, just did salmon right by making it bite-sized and putting it in a snack sack just for you. Each bite is chewy, aromatic with dill and touched with maple for the perfect umami treat. It's like all the best parts of a bagel with lox—the chewiness, the decadent fish, the dill—rolled up into a portable feast of tender jerky.
We all have eaten fish at work. Unfortunately, it's not the best way to make friends in amongst the cubicles and shared kitchen space. Of course, it's nice to make tuna or salmon salad rather than opting for takeout or yet another smoothie from down the street, but what about when you are truly on the move? That canned stuff just doesn't travel so well, All the juices and oils and water . . . and those pouches are only a hair better, honestly.
But no more. With EPIC's Salmon Bites, say "Hello!" to eating salmon at your desk again. Their Maple Dill Bites are touched with just the right amount of sweetness, the right amount of herbs, the right amount of rich toothsome salmon. The pieces are perfect morsels of tender jerky but nothing like jerky you're used to. There's no dryness, no stringiness. The only flavor is that of the wild caught salmon and a hint of dill. It's pretty much perfect. The bites are housed in a portable sack that fits in your life, easy to grab one or more when a little stomach growl inspires your afternoon. Keeping you away from the snack table at your most vulnerable? Brilliant.
EPIC has proudly expanded their animal kingdom to include one of the most brilliant aquatic species on the planet! Their 100% Wild Caught Salmon is sourced from family owned fishermen based in the famous Bristol Bay Region of Alaska. These wild caught salmon enjoy nutritious diets high in ocean plankton and enjoy open range swimming that is consistent with how the species has evolved.
As a reliable supply of nutritious protein and fat, salmon has long been at the heart of the culture and livelihood of our coastal dwelling ancestors. To compliment the amazing flavor of Alaskan Salmon, EPIC has mixed this nourishing cold water fish with dill, sea salt, and a hint of maple. The end result is an EPIC tasting jerky bite unlike anything you have experienced!
Many of us love salmon of many varieties: chinook, king, coho, sockeye, pink, silver . . . the list goes on. And many of us eat farm-raised salmon, which is nutritionally pretty good, but environmentally can be problematic. Wild-caught salmon is both a healthier choice for nutrition but also for a lessened impact on native habitats. Wild-caught are sought after at their source, rather than grown in a single location. This means they've lived a more "normal" life and reap the benefits of that normal activity.
Wild-caught salmon has impressive amounts of: Omega-3 fatty acids (both DHA and EPA), easily assimilated protein, Vitamin D, bioactive peptides that assist in bone and connective tissue formation, B12, Selenium, B3, Phosphorus, B6, and Iodine.
There's endless ways to enjoy these little morsels of joy. First, try them alone, chewing thoughtfully as you taste the simplicity and pure salmon quality. Then, get creative. Chop them up and put them in a salad. Sprinkle bits on a deviled egg. Use each piece to scoop up a little cream cheese and think lox & bagel thoughts. Tear open the package and enjoy. That's it.
"Oddly enough, the roots of EPIC were planted shortly after Katie and I became vegetarians. We were making ourselves unintentionally sick with gastrointestinal distress and a myriad of inflammatory ailments. Not knowing what to do, we decided to go vegan and when things got worse, we decided to follow a raw food diet.
Unable to maximize our own vigor and wellness, we looked for answers in the whole foods consumed by our human ancestors. Within a week of adopting what is now called the "paleo diet" which emphasizes healthy animal fats, grass fed protein, and leafy vegetables, our bodies and minds radiated with exuberance. Through modifying the foods we ate, we reached exciting new levels of performance during competition as well as daily life.
We quickly realized there was a lack of conveniently packaged nutrient dense animal protein when we traveled, exercised, and worked. So, we set out to create the world’s first 100% grass fed meat, fruit, and nut bar. We call our product EPIC because it improves the lives of animals, regenerates our bodies, and helps heal the land. Due to an ingredient label unlike anything else, EPIC epitomizes real foods and will always be humane, pasture centered, and most importantly, delicious."
"Feed others as you wish to be fed"
Perhaps the most compelling argument for consuming grass-fed meats comes from the EPIC nutrition that is passed on from animal to human. The brilliance of this nutrient transfer is based on how the animals are raised. Grass-fed animals are loaded with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which are better for both cardiovascular health and contain anti-inflammatory properties. They also have significantly higher values of vitamins A and E as well as antioxidants.
For athletes, grass-fed meat is particularly favorable in that it contains up to twice the levels of conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, which promotes the development of lean muscle tissue and lowers the risk for a myriad of other health problems.
By combining delicious tasting and lightly smoked animal protein with savory nuts and dehydrated fruits, EPIC foods taste amazing! EPIC foods are unique in the sense that they are more savory, tender, and flavor-forward than jerky without the high carbohydrate and sugar load of other bars. Reconnect with your ancestral diets and enjoy every bite of it!
EPIC is for everyone! Long lasting satiety comes easily with EPIC's nutrient-dense protein content and the absence of grains. This makes EPIC a great option for on-the-go healthy snacking.
Additionally, EPIC bars are loaded with anti-inflammatory omega-3's, muscle-building CLAs, and antioxidant-rich vitamins A and E, thus also making EPIC a perfect fuel for athletes.
Lastly, the low-glycemic nature of EPIC creates the perfect snacking option for diabetics, Paleolithic eaters, and others looking for a pure form of protein, just the way nature intended.
Yes! As a matter of fact, EPIC produces the most Paleo-friendly portable meat available in the market!
