Hi Three to Five Tribe! As you know, I am constantly on the lookout for brands I believe in, so when I was first introduced to a new company called Lil Bucks,I just had to share this delicious find with all of you.
Lil Bucks is the first dedicated sprouted buckwheat brand in the United States. Made from sprouted buckwheat groats, Lil Bucks are actually seeds, specifically fruit seeds, that are naturally high in protein, but why sprouting? Sprouting releases enzyme inhibitors that allow our bodies to better absorb antioxidants and nutrients from the seeds. Translation: The process of sprouting helps our bodies absorb the maximum amount of nutrients said food has to offer. After the Lil Bucks seeds are soaked, they are then dehydrated to preserve their nutrients, this step also gives Lil Bucks their deliciously additive crisp as well as their naturally nutty taste and signature texture.
Considered a complete protein as it contains all 8 amino acids, Lil Bucks is also:
- High in antioxidants
- Low glycemic
Considered a sustainable superfood, Lil Bucks contains ten times more antioxidants than quinoa. With five grams of fiber and six grams of plant-based protein, Lil Bucks is a raw food delight and is the perfect grain-free snack. Enjoy on its own or as a topping for your favorite recipes like:
Lil Bucks Family of Foods
Lil Bucks sprouted buckwheat crunch comes in a variety of flavors including original, cacao and matcha, but their latest food to join the Lil Bucks family is their adaptogenic buckwheat clusters. Available in Chocolate Reishi and Turmeric Lemon Myrtle, Clusterbucks are Lil Bucks’ new crunchy granola product line. Packed with fiber, protein and stress-reducing adaptogens, these buckwheat clusters are low in sugar and harness the functional properties of adaptogens. Just like Lil Bucks sprouted buckwheat crunch, this snack-granola hybrid is gluten-free, grain-free and Paleo.
Fun Fact: Lemon myrtle is an Australian shrub with leaves that smell more lemon-y than an actual lemon. Pair it with the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric and you have the perfect combination of savory and sweet flavors.
Enjoying Lil Bucks three to five days a week,
