I was excited a few weeks back to open my mailbox and find that I was given the chance to try Manitoba Harvest Hemp Bars. I had my eye on these bars and since my diet likes a lot of protein, I just knew that I had to try these. Not only are they loaded with 10 grams of plant based protein, they also have a serving of 10 grams of Omega's. So much goodness in one bar!
I like to know where my food comes from. I like to know how it is made and the health benefits it can deliver. With that being said here's a few thing first about the company itself : Manitoba Harvest.
* It was founded in 1993
* The company makes everything right there on their site
* Their plant has the highest quality level of global certification in safety and quality
Manitoba Harvest Mission:
"To manufacture and market the highest quality hemp food products, to educate on the health and environmental benefits of hemp, and to strive for sustainability in all that we do."
So why hemp?
Hemp seeds have been found to contain healthy fats, protein, and various minerals. They also contain both Omega 3's and Omega 6's. Those Omega's can aid in healthier skin as well as have anti-inflammatory properties which may help with joint healing. Hemp seeds also contain high amount of amino acid arginine which is known for being linked to lowering heart disease.

How do they taste?
I really liked the flavor of both. To my surprise I actually liked the Apple Cinnamon one better than the chocolate! Believe me, this girl loves chocolate! I am interested in trying the vanilla and will be sure to do so. I enjoyed the two I was sent and have purchased more since. I recommend these bars if you are looking for healthy and high protein bar.
Manitoba Harvest has a few more wonderful products that you should check out. It's not just the bars, they even have protein powder and smoothie mix! I have the Vanilla Chai smoothie mix which has a yummy recipe on the back which calls for maple syrup and banana's! It was a delicious recovery smoothie after my run.
