Hemp Hearts Review and Giveaway!

I was lucky enough to get a bag of Manitoba Harvest's hemp hearts to review (thank you, Sweat Pink team!). I've been having fun adding them to different meals and snacks, like my workout recovery shakes and more:

I loved sprinkling them on top of my peanut-buttery pancakes!

But my most favorite thing to add them to was my addiction: warm salads ..

They have a delicious, nutty-like flavor and a really nice, soft texture. 

Here are some nutrition facts about hemp hearts vs super foods chia and flax:


I was also REALLY happy to see how much iron there is in them!! I fight to get enough iron in my diet so having these babies on hand made that super easy. They've quickly become a staple in my pantry that I can't go without.

Want to try some?! 

I'll be giving away one bag to a lucky winner .. To enter, all you have to do is comment below and tell me one food / meal / snack you'd love to have them with!
