It is all about the jerky.
Eating Beef Jerky for breakfast all depends on the type and brand of jerky you eat.
Before anything else, it is good to note that there are a lot of jerky options in the market today. Though beef jerky is a truly good source of protein, one must always check the label and nutritional information of each brand to see whether the jerky that one eats has a ton of chemical preservatives or flavoring. The reason why many people love our brand is because it has the following:
- Low Fat
- High Protein
- Contains no Preservatives
- Has no Erythorbate
- Has no added MSG
- Has no Nitrites
- Has no Artificial Ingredients
- Is Minimally Processed
Making sure that your jerky brand does not have dangerous preservatives that can cause more damage than good. Beef jerky when all natural, makes a perfect go to food for those who diet as it does not raise your level of insulin (your hormone that signals the storage of fat). It is very high in protein which can improve your metabolism and has no carbs.
Mix and Match
Beef jerky is truly a good source of protein. Once you have an idea of how much calories you need for your nutritional goals, you can opt to add beef jerky to a variety of “good food” to make your breakfast more filling and satisfying. Mixing Beef jerky with eggs, chicken, turkey, veal or fish will definitely give you a delicious and nutritious breakfast. It is always good to consider what vitamins and minerals your body needs to know what type of food you can mix your jerky with to fulfill your dietary requirements.

So, If I have the right kind of beef jerky, can I have it for breakfast?
Yes! Still, nutritionists will encourage you to not eat just beef jerky alone for breakfast. Breakfasts are very important on one’s diet. If you are working or studying, a lot of the energy you will use up for your day comes from what you eat early in the day. This makes it very important to eat the right kind of food.
When you are out camping and do not have time to prepare anything that requires cooking, the right kind of jerky will keep you filled up and energized in between meals.
