We all know getting enough protein is vital to a good workout plan. But what about CBD?
We’ve created a recipe that has both! Give your body the boost it needs, while also giving it relief with these delicious peanut butter pumpkin protein bars!
Just the Tasty Snack Your Body Needs To Heal..
Protein supports the growth & repair of muscles which is why it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough protein – especially if you work out regularly. They’re also a great source of energy. Eating a protein bar before or after workouts is an ideal way to give your body the building blocks it needs to repair itself.
Now we love a good protein bar BUT we also believe that it’s important you’re also eating high quality protein. A protein bar that really gives your body what it needs, rather than filling it with unnecessary sugars & additives. So what better way to ensure you’re eating something healthy than by making it yourself?
Over the years CBD has also become an important workout supplement.
If you struggle with stress or anxiety, CBD can help soothe any tension you’re feeling, which can help clear your mind before a workout. CBD can also be great as a post-workout supplement. Did you know that CBD can have a significant effect on reducing inflammation in the body? This soothing effect from CBD may help your muscles recover faster, leaving you feeling less sore and ready to take on your next fitness challenge!
By adding CBD to your protein bars you’re not just getting more healthy proteins, but you’re also giving your body the relief it needs.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, we’re here to tell you IT CAN. We’ve created a deliciously nutritious protein bar, made with everyone’s fall favourite 🎃 Pumpkins are not only in season, but they’re also rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The perfect healthy and yummy addition.
