Hope your holiday weekend was a great one, the weather was sure to please! I wasn't able to make it to the beach but nonetheless I enjoyed some good times with my boyfriend and his friends, picked up my new car and had a Memorial Day BBQ :) (new recipes soon to come).
For now, I wanted to share with you all two of my favorite energy/food bars, Raw Revolution's Organic Live Food Bar (Spirulina & Cashew Flavor) and Greens + Chia Energy Chocolate Bar.
One of my favorite ingredients is the spirulina due partly to its high protein content. Spirulina is a complete protein, which means it has an adequate amount of all nine essential amino acids necessary for dietary needs. Spirulina is packed with essential fatty acids, as well as number of B, C, D & E Vitamins. Regular spirulina intake has been shown to reduce LDL cholesterol and blood pressure and also be effective in reducing
In a later post, I will include a how-to on homemade protein bars. I've ventured down this path once and the results were pretty good. Next time I make them, I will document the process and detail the recipe and steps so you can give it try for yourself!
Have a great (short) week everyone :)
