I’m always on the look out for a good snack. I try to prep something over the weekend to have on hand for everyone in the family. Whether it’s at home, at school or work, we all pack at least two snacks a day or more if there’s an after school/work event. No one needs to have their inner Hangry Monster come out. Homemade muffins, energy bites and balls and healthy cookies or bars are usually my go-to.
But I’m human and sometimes life gets crazy on the weekends. Or it’s a gorgeous spring/summer/fall/winter day and the last thing I want to do is spend time time in my kitchen. Packaged snacks to the rescue! My criteria for packaged snacks is pretty strict – no extra junk, a small ingredient list full of real food, be satisfying and obviously, taste delicious.
Say hello to my new little friend.
Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Bites are small and mighty but pack a whopping 10 grams of protein and 10 grams of omega 3 and 6 in about 8 pieces.
I’m a fan of putting hemp hearts in smoothies and my morning oats so the flavor was nothing new. Hemp Heart Bites are easy to eat and satisfying. The flavor is a little chewy and mostly crunchy with a little nutty. Or I should say, seedy, since it is a seed. One thing is for sure, they are definitely satisfying. No Hangry Monsters have been seen at my house in quite some time.
