Your Body Is A Gift

Image
It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows re…

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.
