The first company value that we created at EPIC was "feed others as you wish to be fed". Still true to this day, we are proud to announce that we have once again raised the bar on our internal commitment to creating the highest quality meat snacks on the market. To further accomplish this mission, EPIC is now certified compliant with the Whole30 program!
Established by Dallas Hartwig and Melissa Hartwig (of Whole9), the Whole30® is a very EPIC food program designed to change your life in just 30 days. Think of it as a short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you put an end to unhealthy cravings and habits, restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, and balance your immune system.
The basic premise is that certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it. By striping those ingredients from your diet completely, you are cutting out all the psychologically unhealthy, hormone-unbalancing, gut-disrupting, inflammatory food groups for a full 30 days. Let your body heal and recover from whatever effects those foods may be causing.
The Whole30 program is super simple and leads to some tremendous results! Both Katie and I routinely do Whole30 resets throughout the year and we can personally testify to increased levels of energy, reduced GI distress, improved athletic performance, and an overall better mood. From experience, one of the most difficult challenges during a Whole30 program is finding clean meat snacks. You will be shocked to know that there is virtually no sugar free jerky out on the market. For years we have used our own Beef Habanero Cherry and Turkey Almond Cranberry Bar for an acceptable snack, but relying on a handful of EPIC bars for 30+ days can get a little old.
Because we are so passionate about the Whole30 program, Katie and committed to creating more products that are compliant with the rules. We accomplished this by working with Melissa as we developed our brand new line of EPIC Bites and prepared to launch 5 new EPIC bars! We even went out of our way to develop our very own sugar free bacon cure! By doing this, EPIC's bacon containing products are now the only shelf stable and sugar free bacon snacks in the world!
