You know what they say – an apple a day keeps the doctor away. I’m not that concerned about keeping the doctor away right now – I just want to be healthy and eat right. I guess in a round about way that could keep the doctor away. While doing Body For Life, I’m eating 5-6 meals per day as prescribed. I’m always looking for a good meal that follows the protein/carb schedule. A great meal that I’ve found is an apple and beef jerky. I’ve tried just about all of the brands of beef jerky out there and short of fresh jerky from a trading post in the middle of nowhere, TX — Jack Link’s is my personal favorite.
The jerky serves as the protein and the apple is the carb. I buy the 3.25 oz bags and split it in half so it lasts me for 2 meals. My favorite apple right now is the honeycrisp. If you haven’t tried one, they are seriously amazing.
