When you are on a ride, on-the-go, coming in and out of places, and realize you don’t have time for a sit-down meal? Having any of these quick bites handy in your bag could give you a boost of energy, satisfy your hunger and crazy schedule at the same time.

  1. Beef Jerky + Toasted Coconut

 

You can eat the jerky separately or together with the organic coconut chunks. This nutrition-rich blend can replace a meal and provide long-lasting energy, perfect for on-the-go occasions. The smoky and savory jerky meat combined with the refreshingly semi-sweet coconut flakes, are packed with protein, omega 3, niacin, antioxidants, and many more. Since 2012, EPIC has been making grass-fed meat based snack products combining nutritional ingredients like fruits & nuts to provide you with energy to fuel your day of activities.

“For athletes, grass-fed meat is particularly favorable in that it contains up to twice the levels of conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, which promotes the development of lean muscle tissue and lowers the risk for a myriad of other health problems.” -Quoted from Epic

Once all blended, spread the mixture between 2 slices of bread of your choice. Press them together and then cut them into bite sized pieces.

Tip: If you don’t like eating oxidized brown-looking bananas, make sure you sprinkle the sliced up banana pieces with a bit of lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown.

But even with garage or extra shed space, bike storage can present problems if the garage is actually used for automobiles, and/or the garage and shed are stuffed to the relative gills with other items on either a permanent or seasonal basis.
