Rachel is also using our beef jerky and biltong as part of her training regime. Rachael told us how this assist with her daily meal plans
Beef jerky is ideal for me, there are a few reasons I used Beef jerky to aid my training, it’s easy to take anywhere, I’m on the go a lot and this is a ideal snack for me pre or post training but I also use it when away from training to help get a healthy protein hit during the day. I enjoy the variety of products and flavour honey BBQ being my favourite, it’s also soft so eating this brand isn’t hard work!
