Last month we sponsored a contest called the ‘Healthy & Inspired Living’ contest put on by Fitness Goop looking for healthy living articles. The winners were Robin (to the right) and Katie (below)! Check out what Katie had to say about her prize winnings……
“The verdict is in! I was the lucky winner of Fitness Goop’s contest for articles on healthy living, and I happily accepted my prize: a giant box of goodies from Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods & Oils. They were very generous! My package contained a giant container of Hemp Hearts (no joke—it’s 5lbs), a container of hemp oil, HEMP PRO 50 hemp protein powder, HEMP PRO FIBRE protein powder, a yoga mat and carrying case, and a reusable shopping bag. Score.
I pulled all of my loot out and sat staring at it proudly until I realized, “Wait a minute. I’ve never used hemp oil or Hemp Hearts before! What am I going to do with this?” (Happily, the protein powder and yoga mat will be easily incorporated into my yoga and post-yoga smoothie schedule.) Thankfully, a little pamphlet included in the package offers a few recipes for hemp hearts, and the oil has its own suggestions printed on the side.
All in all, I feel like this Manitoba Harvest gift package was a terrific opportunity for me to learn about the benefits of hemp, begin to incorporate it into my diet, and spread a bit of research to others with curious minds. Happy dining!”
