Disclaimer: I received a complimentary sample pack of Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts to try for the purposes of this post. All opinions are my own.
If you have been reading this blog for a while or not you definitely heard me talk about Sanders Optimum Fitness Boot Camp and how it requires a lot of energy because the workouts are THE BUSINESS. Well Monte Sanders is my coach and he always talks about fueling your body with clean fuel vs. junk in order to perform your very best. Since he trained Ray Lewis and Ed Reed (who both have at least 1 Superbowl ring) I listen to what he has to say. He trains champions.
I have been looking to not only expand my horizon of what I consider healthy but also incorporate more tried and true healthy meals into my lifestyle. Now don’t be fooled, I eat all kinds of food but since I am also near the middle of my DietBet challenge it is imperative I up the ante on my focus on a clean diet. One of my biggest challenges has always been with clean food – staying full for a few hours until lunchtime. I know I know eat 5 to 6 small meals throughout the day but with some of our professional work schedules that becomes a daunting task.
I am constantly looking for food that will provide excellent nutrition yet fill my belly and hold me over until I can get time to eat my next meal. I was thrilled when I was chosen to participate in reviewing the Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts because I found it to be a great opportunity to see how I like them, whether I want to add them to my daily routine and whether I can recommend them to all of you, my amazing readers.
So let’s see, these bad boys have 10 grams of protein and 10 grams of Omega 3 & 6 and is the food of many athletes. They come raw and shelled and have a nice slight nutty flavor. They go with just about anything such as cereal, yogurt, salad, smoothies and much more. They are non-GMO, lower in carbs than flax or chia seeds and vegan-friendly.
I actually tried it in my daily green smoothies and really LOVED IT. I thought it complimented it perfectly. I would liken the taste to raw pine nuts and I love pine nuts. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who wants to get some additional nutrition goodness into their food!!
