some extra protein/healthy fat power!

Remember how I said leftover’s for 3 days?

Speaking of HEMP SEEDS –
Brad from Hippie Butter has offered to giveaway
1 bag of toasted Hemp Seeds
1 bag of  raw Hemp Seeds
& 1 sample jar of Cacao Hippie Butter

That’s 3 winners!!

Did you know that
Hemp contains high levels of the recommended 3:1 ratio
of essential omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids?

which have been shown to reduce the risk of
cardiovascular disease, stroke, osteoporosis and diabetes.

Hemp seeds are also very protein-rich!
