I hike anywhere from 14 to 24 miles a week, and I have learned that my body craves protein. Though, when you are lactose intolerant, allergic to wheat, and have a severe allergic reaction to almonds, it’s really quite hard to find a snack that tastes good and can carry you to the end of a long walk.
Enter the Munk Pack protein cookie. Munk Pack’s low sugar, gluten free and plant-based products make it easy and enjoyable to incorporate well-balanced nutrition on the go into anyone’s lifestyle.
Each protein cookie is made without eggs, dairy, soy, gluten, and sugar alcohols. Packed with 16 g of protein, 36 g of carbs, 16 g of sugar and 320 calories, the Munk Pack Double Chocolate Chip protein cookie is my favorite. I buy locally at REI, where you earn a 10% off bulk discount on 10 or more power food products. Munk Pack also carries Keto Granola Bars and Keto Nut Seed Bars.
What makes Munk Pack extra tasty is its giving back program. Grant funds support the Yosemite Conservancy, the philanthropic organization dedicated exclusively to Yosemite National Park that funds the research of contaminants in Yosemite’s waters. When I was about 15 years old, I had the opportunity to climb up to the cables of Half Dome (at a time when there were limited restrictions and no permits required). I will choose to remember fond memories of that trip every time I snag one of these Munk Pack protein cookies!
