Birch Benders Paleo Pancake & Waffle Mix

From Amazon

High Fiber, Gluten Free, Low Glycemic, Prebiotic

Ever look at the ingredients of a standard pancake or waffle mix? Bleached flour, sugar, crappy fats, racism, dog fighting... I think it's all in there. Instead, try this healthy and convenient mix from Birch Benders. Its main ingredients are cassava (a root vegetable), coconut flour, almond flour, and eggs. All you need to add is water and heat. At just 11 grams of net carbs per serving, waffles and pancakes are back on the menu.

Taza Wicked Dark Chocolate Bar

From Amazon

Organic, 95% cocao

Oh, you like chocolate? Really, punk? I doubt it. I think you like sugar and milk, you pantywaist. Wanna prove me wrong? Try one of these ACTUAL chocolate bars. This 95% dark chocolate bar is made with minimally-processed, unrefined cocao. It's actually stone ground and kinda gritty. But you like chocolate, right? So as a connoisseur, you'll love the natural texture. Besides all of the health benefits from polyphenols, these bold bars only have about 2 grams of sugar per serving. Brace yourself and have a taste.

100% Grass Fed & Finished, Sugar Free, Nitrate and Nitrite Free

It's time to ditch those "slim" convenience store snack sticks, unless you like mechanically separated meat splooge, soy flour, and corn syrup. Try these grown-up, all-beef sticks instead. Not only do these use beef that's grass fed and finished, they even use real beef-collagen casings. Snap into that, Jim!

Siete Cashew Queso

From Amazon

Dairy Free, Soy Free, Paleo, Vegan

"Eating clean" and "eating queso" do not go together. Or do they? Whether you're avoiding dairy or just looking for a snack with more real-food ingredients, this stuff fits the bill. It's made mainly with cashews and vegetables. And unlike most non-dairy cheese substitutes, there's no soy in sight. You can get it in mild nacho or (very frickin') spicy blanco.

Go Raw Flax Snax

From Amazon

Gluten Free, Keto Approved, Soy Free, Organic, Paleo

Will these pizza-flavored crackers kill your cravings for deep-dish pepperoni pie? No. No they will not. But they're still pretty dang tasty. They're made only with sprouted flaxseed, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, tomato powder, and a few spices. Keep a bag in your desk at work and you'll be able to easily resist all those cakes and cookies the secretaries bring in. Stay away from me, Brenda!
