They sound perfect for a vegetarian runner! I'm always looking for ways to increase protein, iron and calcium. Plus Omega 3s are great for recovery,
I decided to give them a try and here's what I thought...
First try...Salad topper. Wonderful! A little nutty flavor and crunch but not overwhelming.
Next...Pumpkin Mug Cake. Another good pick here! No really added flavor but extra protein is always great!
Pumpkin Mug Cake (GF/Vegan)
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 tbsp unsweetened applesauce (or other sweetener to add sweetness)
2 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tbsp hemp hearts
1 scoop protein powder (Shakeology of course!)
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Grease microwave safe bowl. Mix liquid ingredients, then add in dry ingredients. Cook 3-4 minutes in microwave. Top with almond butter and enjoy!
