Blue Dinosaur makes delicious paleo and protein bars in a range of flavours, but our favourite has to be the lamington.

Activated nuts are the best choice if you find you get a sore tummy after eating too many roasted nuts. The activation process means it's easier for your gut to break down the nuts. This mix is a blend of almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, brazil nuts and pistachios. So, you can enjoy snacking on protein and have no guilt doing it.
