I was kindly sent some samples of PASHEN to review - and i have converted!
Pashen bars are raw, sprouted and gluten-free. But more than that, they're yummy, delish, and nutrish.
Invented by Lisa Wilson, a nutritionist mom, in response to the not-so-healthy treats and snacks she found lurking everywhere from sports practice to school lunches, Pashen bars are made by hand in Minnesota by Lisa's sister and brother, Wendy and Pol, using the highest quality, freshest ingredients like rich cacao (raw chocolate), antioxidant-filled goji berries, and locally harvested honey.
The best part is, Pashen bars are great for everyone: kids, moms, dads, everyone is in love with our original and cacao versions. Pack them for snacks for your kids, keep some in your purse for an on-the-go breakfast. They're great as a meal replacement, or...dessert!
Taste Pashen, and I think you will love them too. It's an easy way to make healthy eating convenient and delicious.
Pashen Original Raw Bar is loaded with flavor and nutrition. Ingredients include organic, sprouted and dehydrated buckwheat, organic pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, cranberries, goji berries and sesame seeds; honey, agave nectar; almond butter and cacao butter, all raw and organic; and the perfect amount of organic cinnamon and vanilla.
Almonds are rich in potassium, dietary fiber and magnesium to support a healthy heart and immune system.
Pumpkin seeds are a near perfect food - they have amino acids and unsaturated fatty acids, contain many B vitamins, as well as C, D, E and K. They also have wonderful minerals like calcium, potassium, phosphorous and niacin.
Sesame seeds are a very good source of manganese and copper as well as calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber.
Cranberries contain a source of pythochemicals known as condensed tannins - this means these berries are powerful antioxidants with an anti-inflammatory effect.
Cacao is a raw chocolate from the rainforest that many nutritional experts believe to be a super-food. Super-foods are food with antioxidants that are nearly off the charts in comparison to other foods. Most importantly, pure chocolate is believed to stimulate various neurotransmitters such as serotonin.
The goji berry is well known for its high antioxidant properties. Goji berries are rich in many nutrients, minerals and amino acids.
