Product Review: Steve’s Original Paleokits
I have been doing CrossFit for over six years and one of the first snack products targeted toward CrossFitters I remember appearing on the scene was Steve’s Original Paleokits. Paleokits are the invention of Steve Liberati and were initially created less as a business venture and more as a labor of love to support his charity project, Steve’s Club.
Based in Camden, New Jersey, the original Steve’s Club is a not-for-profit CrossFit affiliate founded to provide local at risk children with an education in fitness, health and nutrition. Steve’s Club started as one small club in a public housing development and is now a network of affiliates across the nation known as the Steve’s Club National Program.
Paleokits are a mixture of beef jerky, macadamia nuts, almonds, pecans and dried fruits. The jerky is handmade and USDA Certified. The kits are gluten free and sugar free, using only a small amount of apple and pineapple juice to cure the jerky. There are no preservatives in Paleokits. The kits come in a small and large size and are Zone Diet friendly in their macronutrient proportions.
I find Paleokits are great to have on hand for two scenarios: when I am busy at work and need a healthy snack and when I am on the road and am not sure I will have access to a nutritious meal. I highly recommend Paleokits for anyone who travels regularly. I also enjoy the taste of the Paleokits. They have a not too salty, not too sweet, but satisfying flavor. There is enough meat to fill you up and a variety of nuts and fruits in every package.
