Raw Organic Food Bar

Raw Vega BarsThe following information is for education only and is not meant to diagnose, prescribe, or treat illness.

One of our all time favorite raw vegan bars are the Vega Energy Bars. Coming from the same company as the Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer green powders, they are described as "a quick, healthful snack that reduces nutritional stress and provides the quality protein, fiber and essential fatty acids your body craves."

These whole food energy bars are made exclusively from natural, plant-based ingredients, are 100% raw, are alkaline and enzymatically alive (requiring less energy to digest) and each raw food bar includes:

>> 10 grams of complete (i.e. all essential amino acids), easily digestible raw protein
>> 6 grams of both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber
>> 6 grams of sprouts, rich in enzymes and phytonutrients
>> 4.5 grams of omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids

Vega FlavorsThe main ingredients are:

>> Hemp protein - high in chlorophyll, antioxidants, enzymes, omega 6 EFA's and fiber

>> Organic whole sprouted flax seeds - rich in enzymes, phytonutrients, antioxidants, probiotics, lignans, omega 3 EFA's and fiber

>> Agave Nectar - extremely low glycemic and easily digested carbohydrate

>> Organic sprouted mung beans - rich source of enzymes, alkalizing complete protein, and natural vitamins and minerals

>> Organic wheatgrass - high in chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and phytonutrients

>> Organic Dulse - rich in essential minerals, protein, trace elements and electrolytes

Benefits of the above ingredients?

>> Carbohydrate from agave for sustained energy and balanced blood sugar levels

Raw Food Almond Dream Bar Recipe

Ingredients:

>> 8oz jar of raw organic almond butter
>> 8oz coconut oil <- truly raw
>> 1/3 cup of dehydrated sprouted buckwheat (for some crunch)
>> 1/3 cup of goji berries (for more crunch)
>> 1/3 cup of lucuma powder (as the sweetener)

Directions:

>> Put equal amounts of raw almond butter and coconut oil into a food processor, along with lucuma powder. Process to a liquid consistency.
>> Add in goji berries and buckwheat and process ever so slightly until they break up a little and disappear into the mixture.
>> Scoop the mixture into small containers like muffin papers or tins. In the video, small rubber ones are used to make it easier to take the bars out.
>> Freeze for a few minutes until hard, or leave in the fridge for several minutes until hard and ready to eat.
