GIveaway time!

Cleaning up my eating has become a a big part of my life, husband and I are always looking for healthy alternatives and new recipes.  One of my favorite things right now are Hemp Hearts, I use them practically everywhere; in cereal, on yogurt, smoothies, salads and of course right out of the bag.  

Hemp Hearts are delicious, and often compared to sesame seeds or pine nuts in taste, Hemp Hearts are lower in carbs than flax and chia; they are raw, vegan friendly and Non-GMO. Hemp Hearts have a whopping 10 grams of protein and 10 grams of omegas per 30 gram serving.  AND Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts are grown in Canada!  

One of my favorite post run snacks is Heap Heart Banana Sushi (relax - its fish free)

30 Superfood Recipes You've Never Tried Before.Ingredients
           -1 medium banana
           -1 tablespoon almond butter

           First, peel your banana. Then, spread almond butter on top, making sure to coat the top and sides. Then, sprinkle on hemp hearts. Place in freezer for about an hour. Then, slice about an inch thick.

  1. Hemp is extremely good for you. The US still has a problem with it because of the 'dreaded marijuana' thing. It's ridiculous b/c there's no THC in hemp. Would love to win! It's not mixed with any nuts is it? I'm allergic to almonds.

  2. I can't have banana's but the hemp seeds sound like a keeper to eat since it is so good for you

  3. I'd love to try Hemp hearts! Yum!

  4. I love the banana sushi idea! Id totally give that a try:)
