I am Sophia Forbes, Dana James’ research assistant at Food Coach NYC, and this week’s guest blogger. One of my favorite snacks are raw seeded energy bars. They contain flax seeds, hemp seeds, and chia seeds which are all rich sources of omega-3 fats and fiber. One bar contains the same amount of omega 3’s as 2oz of wild salmon and more than 5 grams of fiber.
Omega 3’s help to improve skin radiance and decrease fine lines by inhibiting an enzyme that causes the formation of wrinkles. Fiber helps to suppress the appetite and slows the glycemic response from the dried fruit. The bars contain no sugar and are sweetened with dates and raisins only.
Each bar also contains 4 grams of protein, which is just less than an egg. These bars are ideal post-workout or when traveling. Dana is off to Mykonos this week and will be taking these on the plane with her.
Enjoy the bars!Photo Credit: www.thisrawsomeveganlife.com
