    Has anybody tried Steve's Original Paleo Kits or MREs? I'll be traveling a lot in the next month or two and I want to pack healthy food. Thoughts? Opinions? Better options?

    Hadn't heard of them, but just googled them. Sounds interesting. I, too, am interested in hearing if anyone has tried them.

    I had a taste when a buddy brought some kits back from some fitness and nutrition industry event. Tasted pretty good and the nutrition info looks pretty impressive for something that's so compact and convenient.

    Recently I've been in several shops where I'd expect to see them, but so far no one in SoCal appears to be carrying them.

    If you go this route, please post an update with your critique.

    My friend and I were actually thinking of ordering some together since a couple of our trainers at the gym said they were pretty good - only problem was price but the more you bought, the more reasonable it was. If you end up getting it before we do, please do share what you think!

    I would only say to be careful of things that are desired to be convinient. In today's world convinient means that things have to be proccessed, have things added, and have things sacrificed. If it is a last and final resort keep it minimal, but otherwise stick to real whole food.

    Tino used to know all kinds of things about nutrition.

    Now all he knows about are grits and pork cracklings. Sigh. It's sad what's become of him.

    I'll raise my bourbon-filled mason jar and say cheers to that:

    About these kits, the only thing that concerns me is the fact that, as all jerky, they're loaded with sodium.

    I ordered five meal replacement-sized paleokits and ate them in place of lunch, right after my mid-day cardio or workouts. They're good, they're portable, they're well balanced, but I dont think I would order many more unless I was traveling or working a busy schedule and had no time to prepare my own lunch.

    Positives: Taste good, 360 calories that are well balanced, 26g of protein, portable.

    Negatives: You have to order at least 10 if you want any variety, not the best choice if your primary goal is to gain mass.

    I'll buy them again when I head out on this winter/spring duty station transfer, and probably while I'm in training in Chicago.
