Happy Friday! If you haven’t heard of hemp protein yet, you are missing out on a yummy and healthy way to get more protein in your diet. I have been using hemp seeds for a while now, putting them in my smoothies, on my salads, on apple “cookies”, in superfood brownies, and in my own homemade hemp protein bars.
I have been crazy busy lately with my personal trainer studies, co-coordinating two local women’s networking groups, setting up customer accounts for a health & wellness company that I promote, blogging, and my social media side business. I get up daily around 4:30 AM to get my morning workout in, before getting my husband’s breakfast ready and getting dressed and ready for the day.
With being so busy lately, I’ve slacked on making my own hemp protein bars, so when I got the chance to sample and review Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Bars, I took it. They have three delicious flavors (Vanilla, Chocolate & Apple Cinnamon) to choose from, all of which are made with simple, minimal ingredients and have 10 grams of protein and 10 grams of omega’s. All of which are key things I look for when purchasing packaged food items.
These bars are the perfect bar to eat pre or post-workout, as a mid-afternoon snack to beat those hanger pains, or as a healthy item to have on the go. I know when I’m out running errands and doing appointments outside of my home office, I always take healthy food items with me so I don’t get a hangry pain and then end up grabbing something unhealthy when I’m out and about. I like to always be prepared, and these Hemp Heart Bars are the perfect, convenient, and healthy grab-n-go food to have with me.
