Hemp as a protein source

Did you know that hemp is one of the best foods you can eat for a balance of omega 3, 6, and 9? Not only is hemp high in omega-3 but it’s also very high in minerals in particular magnesium, which is key for metabolizing those omega-3’s. Hemp also contains manganese which is good for ligament and tendon pain, zinc which is important for prostrate health and testosterone production and iron which plays a roll in oxygen-carrying red blood cell production. All of these factors make hemp an excellent anti-inflammatory food.

Hemp is also:

  • high in magnesium (which many people are deficient in)
  • source of iron
  • source of zinc
  • source of omega-3
  • contains antioxidants to fight free radical and prevent cancer
  • and more…if there was one food that truly deserves to be called a superfood, hemp just might be it!

No-Bake Vegan Hemp Protein Bars

These hemp protein bars are a cinch to make. It’s just quick mix in a food processor or a high-speed blender and you’re done. Once you have that nice, thick, yummy dough, press it into a pan and let it set in the fridge or freezer until firm. You only need 6 everyday, wholesome ingredients to make them, they’re naturally sweetened with dates and pure maple syrup, have have a whole tablespoon of cinnamon for a spicy kick and blood-sugar stabilizing benefits and they make a fantastic pre-workout energy booster or healthy snack anytime you need it.

I used almond butter in these bars but you can also use tahini, sunflower seed butter, cashew butter or peanut butter. I’m definitely making them with tahini next time! I also used plain hemp protein but you could also use a naturally-sweetened vanilla or chocolate flavour if that’s what you have.
