Healthy snacks for extra power during the day are one of the best things I enjoy every day. I prepared some healthy sweets on the weekend, stock them in the fridge for round about one week. Depends on how hungry I am. This hemp protein bars are full packed with lots of protein which is perfect before starting a yoga or fitness session. You find a great nut and seed combination in these bars. For example pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are a rich source of zinc. Zinc is important to your body, for cell growth and division, sleep, mood, your senses of taste and smell, eye and skin health. I use coconut oil instead of butter because coconut oil is a real and natural superfood which includes lot of healthy fatty acids and vitamin e. Vitamin e is THE vitamin for a good skin. LOVE LOVE LOVE vitamin e – YEAH!
