A new bite recipe was been rattling around in my mind for about two weeks. One of those things that I think about but then life gets in the way. Bound & determined today, while I had a break in the weekend activities, I grabbed my ingredients and food processor and made these delicious, nutrient-dense treat. I love grab-n-go, healthy snacking. And these are date-free.
So hemp protein, do you know all the benefits? Crazy but hemp is an excellent source of plant-based protein (33% per serving). It also contains 35% of essential fatty acids including Omega’s 3, 6 and 9. Contains all 9 essential amino acids. Has more Omega-3 than raw tuna! Rich in trace minerals and high in fiber. Many people use hemp protein in smoothies but I wanted to put a fun twist on it. Plus I covered some of the energy bites with hemp seeds for extra nutritional punch.
I cannot stress this enough… food is your fuel. It helps you heal. Recover. Food is power.
