What’s delicious, nutritious and hand-made in North Vancouver? Lifebites! These gluten-free, dairy-free, 100% organic snacks, made from specially selected dehydrated bananas dipped in vegan dark chocolate and rolled in shredded coconut or hemp hearts, are now available at Bikram Yoga Vancouver studios for your snacking pleasure!
Lifebites = B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
These aren’t your run-of-the-mill banana chips. A top-secret process dehydrates each Lifebites banana so it doesn’t turn crunchy or lose any of its flavour. BYV will be carrying two kinds of Lifebites in our studios: banana/dark chocolate/coconut and banana/dark/chocolate/hemp. Both are gluten free, dairy free, vegan, organic, nutrient rich and energy boosting – they make the perfect pre- or post-yoga snack!
What’s in a Lifebite?
It’s impossible to deny that they’re delicious. But the nutritional benefits of Lifebites (especially when it comes to doing your best in Bikram Yoga and reaping the full rewards of your practice) are definitely drool-worthy:
- rich in potassium, which helps maintain normal blood pressure and heart function and keep bones healthy; high in vitamins C and B6; aid in the delivery of oxygen to the cells; good source of fibre.
- helps lower blood pressure and prevent hardening of the arteries; increases blood flow to the brain and heart, which may improve cognitive function and memory and have a positive effect on mood; high antioxidant quality; contains potassium, copper, magnesium and iron.
- rich in fibre, vitamins, minerals and good-for-you amino acids; considered antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial and anti-parasitic, meaning they contain properties that can help kill harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites; supports the development of strong, healthy bones and teeth by improving the body’s ability to absorb calcium and magnesium.
- high-protein seeds that contain all nine essential amino acids; highest botanical source of essential fatty acids; contains a perfect ratio of omega fats that can enhance cardiovascular health and strengthen the immune system; good source of phytonutrients that protect the bloodstream, tissues, cells, skin and internal organs.
