Memorial Day has came to a close and I am thankful for all the blessings I have been given and honored to be able to simply celebrate this day due to the sacrifice of others.  The Indianapolis 500 was ran for the 100th time and I’m sunburnt.  With that being said summer is here and it’s time to liven up our diets with some fresh and light recipes.  Continue Reading…

A week or so ago I did a review on EPIC bars and was extremely please with their products.  I wanted to follow up the bars with another product they offer, Hunt and Harvest Mixes.  These take the natural meat and protein content of their bars and combine it with some additional sources for protein, fat, and carbs to give you even more options in the field and when you’re on the go.  Continue Reading…

Since many of us are relatively adventurous during our hunts and have a keen eye for eating healthy and nutritious, why should we sacrifice when eating in the field or on the go? Thanks to Dawn and Ty at Paleo Meals to Go you don’t have to settle for lackluster nutritional value or highly processed foods to keep you marginally fueled during the hunt. Continue Reading…

Can You See Your Dad Here?  (Photo Courtesy of crestedbutteguides.com)

 

The weather is finally halfway decent out and Dad loves to mix his workouts up with some trail taming. Why not get him outfitted to hit those hiking (or running if he’s ambitious) trails with style and energy?  It could also be a great opportunity for Dad to spend some quality time with you while exposing yourselves to some of nature’s greatest views.  Below are some suggestions for an active outdoors dad geared towards a day of pounding the trails.

A Venison Protein Bar…You Better Believe It!!

 

If you are not familiar with EPIC bars and their other products these are the real deal (www.epicbar.com)! By that I mean they actually use natural ingredients (i.e. real animal meat) to maximize the health and nutritional value of their products.  For this particular review I will be looking specifically at their EPIC Bars (I will be following up with a review of their Hunt and Harvest Mixes).  Continue Reading…

It Doesn’t Get Much More Natural Than This.  (Photo Courtesy of infinatespider.com)

 

It seems there has been a lot of discussion on “clean” eating and choosing “whole” foods. My wife got me turned on to the concept about 6 months ago and I have to admit I’m very pleased with the modifications to my diet.  As hunters we are already ahead of the curve due to the wild game we pursue and eat that is untainted by any portion of the food industry.  I’m guessing with a little bit of effort you too can jump on this healthy bandwagon and reap the benefits.

I don’t think anyone will argue with me that for those of us who wish to eat healthy and create lean muscle we need to eat protein and vegetables.  Of course we do our best to get these during our normal meals and through supplements but sometimes it’s nice to have a tasty snack to go to that is pure and simple.  I have found one that is easy to make, tastes good, and gives you protein and nutrients that your body needs.  Here’s a hint, it has eggs and avocados!

So we all know the importance of getting enough protein in our diets to adequately repair our muscles after hard workouts, right? That means that many of you utilize a protein powder to get a few more grams into your daily diet.  And if you’re like me it’s nice to add some fresh (or frozen) fruit and throw it in a blender for some natural sweetness and those every important nutrients that fruit holds for us.  If you’re really looking for a treat you might even use some milk and turn it into more of a shake.  I’m guessing it would look something like the picture below before you hit the blend button.

When you hunt wild game, you have a lot of ground meat. It is a fact of life.

When you are trying to process an elk, a KitchenAid attachment grinder just won’t cut it. Believe me… I’ve tried.

I used to take my meat to a local butcher to have them grind it up for me because I did not have a decent grinder that could handle the job. After doing the math, I realized that at $1 per pound, I could break even at 150-180 pounds of ground meat. If I got a deer and an elk in the same season, that would pretty much cover it and a grinder would then start paying for itself. Couple that with other hunts and my wife also having a tag and that cost savings would really start to add up. It just made sense to stop paying a butcher and start grinding meat myself.
