Health Tip - A little Seed that does a body-mind good
We all need protein to build strong muscles and support the body’s health. The body actually burns more calories digesting protein than digesting carbohydrates. How can we get healthy protein without a total reliance on animal products? One food we can add to our diet is hemp seeds. No they won’t get you high but they will provide you (in a ¼ cup serving) with about 11g protein plus 2000mg of omega 3 and they contain all the essential amino acids. And further eating hemp seeds help to reduce the carbon footprint. Sprinkle them on a salad, over cereal and yogurt or eat on its own as a wholesome snack.
