Product Review: Braaitime Biltong

I feel as though my entire life I have been lied to.  I had never heard of biltong before.  Then one day I’m browsing through Amazon looking for some new product to try to supplement my protein and there it was.  Braaitime Biltong. I love beef jerky but you can only eat so much before your jaw falls off from the chewing.  Also the brands that have low carbs (1 or less per serving) are limited.  The reviews for the biltong were rave so I went out on a limb and purchased it.  Holy crap.  It changed my life.  Well maybe not that dramatic but it is VERY good.

Biltong is beef that is dried differently than American beef jerky.  Biltong was first made in South Africa around 400 years ago.  It is cool air dried beef that is lightly seasoned and hung in a special box to dry.  The coriander was added to keep flys away.


How does it taste?  One word.  Excellent.  Biltong reminds me of roast beef.  It’s soft and easy to chew.  While I’ve read that some brands are oily due to the fat content of the meat this brand was not.  Braaitime Biltong is tender, flavorful and an overall compliment to a keto or paleo lifestyle!

So let’s talk about the nitty gritty keto details out of the way.  Nutritional information.  One ounce of biltong contains 80 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 1 net carb and 15 grams of protein.  It’s made with beef, salt, vinegar, black pepper and coriander.  It’s keto AND paleo friendly.  It’s a nice little protein packed snack!  Order some Braaitime Biltong today!  Enjoy!

Product Review – Kratos Zesty Pepper Beef Bar


I considered making this a recipe only section of my blog.  However there are certain products out there that I love having being on keto.  I feel like I would be shortchanging everyone who comes to my blog if I didn’t share EVERYTHING in my arsenal that has made me successful in losing weight.  That being said I’m going to start doing product reviews for things I love to have around my house!

Enter the Kratos Zesty Pepper Protein Beef Bar.  I love this product and if you need extra protein in your macros this is great to have.  Now don’t get me wrong.  I love beef jerky.  I can sit down and eat an entire bag without giving it a second thought.  However after all that gnawing my jaw HURTS.  The texture of these protein bars is a delightful change.  They’re softer with a texture almost like that of a Slim-Jim.  They’re mildly greasy but not in a way that will stain your clothes.  The flavor is like that of any good peppered jerky.  Overall I’d give these a good rating and would order them again.  Here are the ingredients from the manufacturers website.ingredients_zestyPepperIf you want to order these from Amazon the link is here.
