Product Spotlight: EPIC Turkey Almond Cranberry Bar

 

Naturally low in fat and loaded with vitamins and minerals, turkey is an exceptionally dense source of nutrient- rich protein. This delicious bar is loaded with almonds and cranberries to add both texture and balance to the dominant meatiness of the turkey. We finish the bar with a hint of tandoori spice that further enhance the flavor and naturally increases shelf life. The native North American turkey has deep-rooted cultural and nutritional value that long exceeds the arrival of Columbus.

The great Ben Franklin once noted, "Turkey is a much more respectable bird (than a bald eagle), and withal a true original Native of America... though a little vain and silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red coat on."

About EPIC
While driving through rural New Mexico on one of our epic outdoor adventures, we witnessed the horrors of an industrial cattle feedlot off the side of an isolated country road. For the first time, we became increasingly aware of the large-scale industrial animal factories that supply the world's meat, but we never connected the dots to the animals that we consumed everyday. Immediately, we reconsidered our own consumption of meat to protest the unnatural and inhumane raising of animals.

As vegetarians, Katie and I continued our pursuit of epic adventure to new extremes. We raced marathons, trained for Ironman triathlons, and frequently entered the wild where we pushed our bodies and spirits to previously unimaginable limits. Sometimes we would be out for so long that we had to sleep in fields just to find the energy to drag our bodies the final few miles home.

Shortly after, we reached a point in which we were becoming increasingly fatigued, losing muscle mass, and suffering from symptoms of overtraining. Over time, we discovered that the problem was that Katie and I could not consume enough nutrient-rich protein and vitamins to keep up with our constantly recovering bodies. We both felt a sense that we were missing a fundamental element to our diets and we instinctively began reintroducing animal protein that we purchased from our local farmers market. At the time, this was the only available outlet for humanely- treated organic and grass-fed meats.
