Go Take a Hike … No Really!

Pacific-Crest-Trail

Go take a hike! Wait, we didn’t mean it like that. We’re talking about the Triple Crown. And no, we aren’t referring to certain adult beverages. The Triple Crown we’re talking about is a hiker’s dream!

Lace up the boots, grab a supply of Southern Recipe Pork Rinds and trek the best of the best with the Triple Crown.

Go West, Young (and Old) Man.
The Pacific Crest Trail is 2,659 miles of some of the most beautiful country you’ve ever seen! If you cover it all, you’ll see 25 national forests and seven national parks. Let’s explore!

A Peach of a Walk.
Stretching from Georgia to Maine, you can’t go wrong with the 2,200 mile long Appalachian National Scenic Trail. Be a “yo-yo” and hike the trail from one end to the other and then back again.

You May Split, But You Won’t Divide.
The Continental Divide Trail is 3,100 miles of postcard scenes. Stretching from Canada to Mexico, you can say, “Eh!” on one end and “Hola!” on the other. Make sure to stop at the Crazy Cook Monument with your bag of Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds, of course. You gotta share with fellow rind loving travelers.

Are you ready to go? Of course you are! First step: Plan your journey. Second step: Pack a high protein snack … or at least eat a high protein snack –  aka pork rinds – brfore you hit the trail!

Can’t Rip This Dip!

Holy moly it’s National Guacamole Day! We all know this “mean and green” dip is made from avocados, but we bet you didn’t know the avocado is actually a “berry”.

Wait, the green stuff is not making you jump up and down? Then you gotta try this guac recipe from the south … of the border. And when you use our Hot & Spicy rinds as the dipper, you’ll add an extra flavor boost.

Got a guacamole recipe to share?  Send it. If we use it, you’ll get a month of pork rinds to dip.

Make Your BBQ Go Boom!


This is the month of freedom and we’re celebrating our independence!

Southern Recipe asks, “Why not make it more significant?” Let’s break away from “not good for us” snacks and take back your independence for good snacking.

Pork rinds really are a power snack that’s a gluten-free, zero carb, and low-calorie crunch. You can’t go wrong with our delicious little beauties. Here are a few things you are better off not eating so you can keep leaner than an on-duty Marine.

  • If your popcorn is floating, so will you– Popcorn can be loaded with butter. Butter in moderation is good but if a package is labeled as “mega-butter”, “lots-o-butter” or “Butter BUTTER!”, stay away. If you need the fix butter provides, try protein packed rinds. You’ll be satisfied without expanding your boxers.
  • Mr. Potato Head– Potato chips are something we should all avoid. Who wants greasy, calorie-filled, yellow tubers when you can have light, airy, melt-in-your-mouth, cooked-with-real-love, pieces of heavenly protein? Unlike spuds, we don’t mess with your blood sugar. Eat and be merry and don’t eat something that’s buried under the ground.
  • Cracked for sure– Crackers are not your friends. They’re little circles and squares of culinary bad news and hate. Crackers are filled with refined flour, hydrogenated oils and high-fructose corn syrup. There are better American ingredients that will keep you soaring with the eagles. Lighten up and let’s eat with the dignity our forefather’s expected! Pork rinds are your answer!

Southern Recipe will fly the stars and stripes over bad snacking and let you rise above the common snack! Your Uncle Sam won’t just be proud, but your whole family too.

  • Cut it out– High blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, and smoking are key risk factors for heart disease in men. Get a yearly physical examination and know your numbers. Men around 50 years of age should be screened for prostate cancer once a year. Hey, everyone can do something once a year, why not this?
  • Food doesn’t have to be in a pyramid– Excessive alcohol use, physical inactivity, and poor diet contribute to a decline in men’s stamina. Meanwhile, daily exercise, food moderation, and proper nutrition are essential for continued heath. Make high fiber, lower calorie and better for you food choices…and make them taste good.
  • Choose your snacks wiselyPork rinds are a healthier way to add crunch and flavor to your favorite bites. A serving of pork rinds has 0 grams of carbs, 9 grams of protein and only 5 grams of fat. Now you know what a pork rind is and the healthy side of this crunchy snack.

Guys, regular check ups along with moderation and healthy snacking will keep your ticker ticking. Southern Recipe will help you stay healthy, in a real man’s kind of way.
