A spoonful of hemp helps the protein go down
You can purchase raw hemp seeds and eat them right out of the bag. A 3 tablespoon serving provides 10 grams of protein — you can’t beat that! Sprinkle them over your salad, into your yogurt or even on cereal. Boost your child’s lunch; slather a banana with seed or nut butter then sprinkle with hemp seeds. Sneak them into homemade power bars too. Here’s a cool way to power up:
- 1 cup dry oats
- 2/3 cup coconut flakes
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup see or nut butter
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 TBS hemp protein powder
- Mix all ingredients in a large bowl
- Roll into balls or place into a mini muffin pan
- Cover and refrigerate. Consume within a few days.
You can also smoothie your way to a better day… They are a great way to get more green veggies and fruit into your diet. Throw in some hemp protein powder and it’s a meal in a cup.
