A Little Break in my Chronicles…
So we can talk about Hemp Heart Bars!
|(A little disclaimer here: I was provided these bars for a review.)|
A while back I wrote about Hemp Hearts. Which I love. Those little suckers are awesome.
So, when the opportunity to review these bars came, I was all over it!
As a mom and a runner, I am always looking for something to “get me by” after my runs or workouts OR something to grab prior to my runs or workouts. (I am known to grab a quick sandwich or scarf down some raw veggies beforehand. But both of those are not exactly portable!)
|It just wanted to jump into my gym bag!|
Now, for those of you who have issues with food texture, these may not be for you. They are compacted bars of hemp heart, which means a bazillion little hemp hearts. If you regularly eat protein bars, then you will notice quite a difference in texture. Where protein bars are dense, these bars are light and easier to eat. (Each bar (45g) contains 10g of plant-based protein and 10g of omegas.)
|My “OMG I left it really late to go to Costco” face.|
I was given an apple cinnamon and chocolate as my review bars, and I must say, I enjoyed the apple cinnamon much more than the chocolate (insert shocking music here)! They are filling, and can get you through the post workout to actual meal time no problem.
I had my apple cinnamon bar before one of my lunchtime training runs. It was easy on my stomach and provided me with what I needed to get my kms in without being ravenous afterwards. I had the chocolate bar before I ran errands and it kept me sane (read: less hangry) as I shopped my way through Costco! (Costco can be a scary place!)
So, if you are looking for something light, but filling, I would definitely recommend these bars. They can be thrown in your gym bag or in your purse and are great to keep you moving through a workout or when you are out doing all your “mom” stuff!
