What can Hemp Hearts do for you?

Now don’t go thinking this stuff has anything to do with it’s most famous counterpart….Hemp Hearts are totally where it’s at for good protein and good nutrition.  They are a great for your health and they taste pretty good as well.  They have sort of a sunflower seed taste and they are full of  goodness.  Eat them however you like, but I would suggest putting them in your morning oatmeal or blending them up in a fruit smoothie.

Here are just a few of the benefits:

  • Increased energy
  • Excellent aid in weight loss
  • Excellent source of Omega 3 and 6
  • Reduced cravings for foods with stimulants, sugars, starches and saturated fats
  • Better digestion
  • Long term health health benefits including reduced cholesterol and blood pressure, more rapid recovery from disease, improved circulation, and more effective immune system.
Enjoy Your Ride

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
