Peanut Butter Hemp Cookies #backtoschoolweek



I am completely obsessed with a new cookbook I bought.  Well it is cookbook/change your life book.  It is called the Power of Food by Adam Hart.  I highly suggest you follow him on twitter or FB.   The book is vegetarian,with many vegan recipes as well. It essentially highlights numerous foods that have great benefits, like quinoa, almonds, hemp & sesame seeds, legumes, blueberries, kale and more.  It is one of those books where I flipped through and every recipe sounded cool and delicious.   I am not a vegan or vegetarian but I don't eat than much meat.  I do love my eggs and cheese though.   If this book though, helps me in getting better foods in my body that I am still on board.  It will be fun to go through the book and just learn new ways to cook with great quality ingredients.


So the kids are going back to school, hard to believe it is here already.  It is now time to get back into routine, homework, school events, projects, fall sports and getting organized.  Back to school calls for easy healthy meals and snacks.   These peanut butter hemp cookies from the Power of Food book are exactly that.  Thanks to Adam hemp seeds are going to be my new best friend.  So easy to add to things.
