So you’ve decided to try this whole caveman diet thing. First thing you’ve got to know before you go Paleo is that you’re gonna eat a lot of protein, vegetables, fruits and healthy fats. What’s not on the list? Grains, dairy, and processed sugars (a.k.a. the ingredients that make all the delicious snacks you love). But fear not! You can still snack and stay on the primal-eating path with these Paleo-friendly snacks. The key is to stock your pantry before you start to avoid a potential Paleo snackmergency. Here are our must-haves:
1. The New Primal Grass-Fed Beef Jerky
If you’re a fan of jerky you’re going to love this. Made from grass-fed beef from New Zealand, this stuff is some of the cleanest jerky on the market. Plus, it’s sweetened with a little pineapple juice and honey, which will keep you coming back for more.
2. Kettle & Fire Grass-Fed Beef Bone Broth
You’ve heard the rumors… bone broth is where it’s at. Each batch of this delicious broth is simmered for 20+ hours, so it’s packed with collagen, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other key proteins. We love sipping on this when it’s chilly out or when you just want a little something something.
3. Canned Sardines in Olive Oil, 12 Pack
Before you say ew, hear us out. These things are actually tasty and loaded with protein, calcium, iron and healthy Omega 3 fatty acids. Try them right out of the can for an easy snack or use as a yummy salad topper.

This sweet snacky is like a fruit roll-up for grown ups without all the artificial ingredients. With no added sugar, these fruit strips are perfect for on-the-go snacking.
5. Paleonola Grain-Free Granola, 2 Pack
Think you can’t eat granola on the Paleo diet? Think again. This granola is gluten free, oat free, grain free, dairy free, soy free and preservative free, but full of great-tasting ingredients like nuts and seeds. To be honest, we’d choose it over regular granola any day of the week.
6. Primal Kitchen Dark Chocolate Almond Bars
