Snack Spotlight: 4505 Chicharrones Meat Protein Snack

Unsatisfied with the huge amount of waste in traditional butchery, 4505 Chicharrones was born out of San Francisco based chef and butcher Ryan Farr’s kitchen who wanted to find a way to use discarded pig skin. Today, 4505 Chicharrones is a leading producer of artisanal pork rinds that have stayed committed to sustainability and whole animal utilization. Made with the finest cuts of humanely sourced pork rinds with no added antibiotics or hormones, the chicharrones is kettled cooked in lard to minimize waste seen in the meat industry. This elevated gas station favorite raises the bar by creating crispy clouds of porkaliciousness that is low calorie, high in protein, low in sodium, gluten-free, paleo certified and absolutely no carbs. With their flavor forward options, 4505 Chicharrones is great on its own or as a sidekick to beer, cocktails, dips, spreads or as a topping for your favorite dishes. In addition to their Classic flavor, 4505 Chicharrones just launched nationwide new packaging and two new flavors—Smokehouse BBQ and Jalapeno Cheddar.

Snack Spotlight: Onnit Tanka Buffalo Meat Tanka Bar


Named after the Lakota word for "Outstanding" the 70-calorie Tanka Bar delivers a slow, powerful protein punch by mixing two primary ingredients: low-fat, high-energy American buffalo meat and tasty cranberries. Based on a traditional Lakota Native American recipe, this combination helped sustain the warrior-hunters of America's plains during grueling endurance hunts and kept their families well-fed through sparse winters. Gluten-free, hormone-free and low-fat, the Tanka Bars are ideal for every diet lifestyle.

The SPICY PEPPER BLEND has a tender and slightly sweet texture with the finish of a nice spiciness provided by fresh jalapenos and habaneros that brings just the right amount of heat.

The end result is a flavor-forward sensory experience that will leave you both inspired and fueled for your next EPIC adventure

These amazing ruminants thrive on eating grass and when allowed to forage in pastures contain up to 5x the omega-3 values of corn-fed cows!

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.
