Finding a quality piece of jerky is like finding a powder stash on a busy weekend—rare. That is until you stumble upon Monarch ski area in Colorado, and Tom-Toms Turkey Snack Sticks. You might recall, “snapping into a Slim Jim?” Well, same idea with these meat sticks, but without the disodium guanylate (a fancy way of labeling MSG). Turkey’s from Welshire Farms are raised without antibiotics, and the end product is free of artificial ingredients, preservatives, and nitrates. Each stick (they come in packs of six) has eight grams of protein, which is more than an egg. In addition to turkey’s high protein content, it is also an excellent source of tryptophan, a precursor for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps the body regulate appetite, sleep patterns, and mood. Cost: $3.55 per pack of six. Calories: 80 calories per stick.
