Love Your Body With Hemp Seeds

Hi beautiful! Sore from yesterday’s cardio kickboxing class? Kristina kicked our 🍑🍑 ‘s! After an amazing workout, it’s SO important to fuel your muscles with nourishing foods. After my Studio classes this week, I’ve been whipping up one of my favorite smoothies ~ 1 scoop vanilla Tone It Up Protein, 1 cup almond milk, 4 ice cubes, a frozen banana, and a shot of espresso, topped with chia seeds and hemp hearts 💗

Hemp seeds are such an amazing superfood! Adding just 1-2 Tbsp. of these little seeds to your meals will help your digestion, balance your hormones, and majorly boost your metabolism! We love them in smoothie bowls or sprinkled on top of a salad for a delicious crunch. They have a slightly nutty, satisfying flavor you’re going to love! Check out all the perks!

Buh-Bye Inflammation

Hemp seeds contain Gamma-Linolenic Acid (aka GLA), which helps balance your hormones and fights inflammation in your bod.  Plus, with hemp seed’s excellent fatty acid profile of omega 3’s and omega 6’s, they strengthen your immune system and keep your skin hydrated and glowing!

Crazy Boosted Metabolism

Having enough fiber in your diet is incredibly important for your digestive health, maintaining stable blood sugar levels, and keeping your cholesterol in check. Since hemp seeds are an amazing source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, they’ll give you all the body-loving benefits of fibrous foods. Plus, hemp seeds are a great source of protein. Andddd getting your daily protein helps you feel satisfied and boosts your metabolism!

Protect Your ❤️

With plenty of fiber, plant protein, and healthy fat, hemp seeds are a perfect heart-healthy food. Studies¹ have found that by decreasing levels of C-reactive protein (an inflammatory compound linked to heart disease) and lowering blood pressure, eating hemp seeds is an excellent way to keep your ticker in tip-top shape!
