Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts Review

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Have you heard of Hemp Hearts? They are raw shelled hemp seeds.
I've got to come clean here, and say that I had never heard of them. But I was given the opportunity through #SweatPink to sample a bag from Manitoba Harvest.

And at first I really expected them to well.. taste bad. I mean they weren't that much to look at.

But, well, they really tasted good. They have a little bit of a nutty flavor.

My first time using them I just put them in a smoothie powder (that you just shake up). Well, let's say that I was swallowing the Hemp Hearts whole. So I wouldn't suggest just putting them in plain powder and shaking them unless you like texture (which I don't).

Instead, I just enjoyed eating them... yes.. as in just eating some for a snack. This entire package is 330 calories with 18 grams of protein. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts also contain 'healthy' fats.

Obviously I didn't eat the entire package in one sitting, but I did enjoy snacking on them here and there. And the Hemp Hearts would be great sprinkled on a salad. If you will also notice they are low in sugar (which is my current goal of My 30 Day Food Challenge)

Overall my thoughts? I like them. I like the taste, and I like all of the nutrients that they contain.
