Hemp Hearts for Health

We have a fun referral prize for the month of June- a basket of Hemp products from Rocky Mountain Grain Products, a company based out of Lethbridge, Alberta.  

To tie this to July's theme of community... here it goes.  At Elan Family Wellness Centre, our business is built by people like you through referrals, and you are helping to build our office as a community wellness care centre.  And in turn, building our community at Elan!  

We are also surrounded by many amazing local businesses, and we aim to share their information when we can and when appropriate.  This local business that we are focusing on today approached Scott and offered some samples.  We are able to both review the products and share with you!  

As it turns out, we love not just the products but also their business!  

Some facts about their product & hemp hearts:

Kid Tested Raw Foods- Snack Bars

Looking for a kid tested, raw food snack? 

Here's one easy snack that fits in the gluten free, dairy free category.  (Just watch your quality of chocolate!)  I promise your kid will like one of these bars-they are gobbled up around our house!  

Chocolate Fruit Bar

1 cup unsweetened dates
1/3 cup warm water (use to soak fruit for 5-15 min)
1 cup almonds
2 TBSP cocoa
1/4 cup chocolate chips  (dark)
1/4 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt


Soak Fruit in water.  Throw almonds in processor and spin until broken down.  Add rest of dry ingredients & process.  When mixed, add fruit (and water, or drain off the water- it turns out either way).  Process for about 60 seconds.  Press into a loaf pan-easiest if its lined with wax paper.  Chill until hardened then cut into 6 bars or 12 smaller squares. 

Oatmeal Raison Bar

1 cup raisons
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup oatmeal (use gluten free if you need or want)
3/4 cup cashews (or almonds/ pecans)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
