So, have you heard the buzz about HEMP Seeds lately…
I guess I am slow to jump on the bandwagon, but, boy, did I have an awakening when I did. The powerful protein kick, in just a handful of these nutty little seeds will put you over the edge.
With the recent WHO report on the carcinogenicity of processed red meat ie: bacon (oh no), hot dogs (frankfurters), ham, sausages, corned beef, and biltong or beef jerky as well as canned meat and meat-based preparations and sauce is unnerving to say the least.
We all know deep down and have suspected this for ever, but the fact that it is now a published report, well, makes it all a little too real.
We have grown-up believing that the main source for this vital nutrient was red meat, well. times have changed boys and girls.
Proteins are large molecules consisting of amino acids that are essential to growing bodies and minds. Protein builds, maintains and replaces the tissues in your body to keep everything functioning smoothly. Our body structures, functions, the regulations of the body’s cell, tissues and organs cannot exist without proteins.
After the initial shock has worn off from the WHO report, look no further in your search for alternatives to expensive cuts of red meat for your protein intake…
