Happy Hemp

I'm the happiest that I've ever been & it's because of Hemp.

Yes that's a bold statement... but hemp is one bold seed.

Ms. Hemp (AKA Tara Miko) has been throwing happiness in the faces of thousands as she grows a company & promotes one of the healthiest foods on earth.

Happy Hemp is what the cool kids are eating, sharing & loving, so I wanted to break it down for you.

Lets start with this:

OMG the protein.

I get asked questions like this all the time:

"Tanner what would be a good thing for me to eat after I workout at Kor180?"

Well ding ding ding!

Hemp not only has more protein than all of those foods above, but it also has the perfect balance of omegas 3, 6 & 9. (you'll only find that perfect balance in hemp)

But that's not all folks! You can also find these vitamins & minerals inside:

FOLATE

It's essential to lots of things that go on in your body, including the creation of healthy blood cells and cells that line the digestive tract.

THIAMINE

This my friends plays a BIG role in the energy metabolism of all cells. It helps convert carbohydrates and amino acids into energy and is needed for your heart, muscles and nervous system to properly function.

RIBOFLAVIN

You need this in your life for body growth, reproduction, red cell production and it also supports normal vision and glowing skin.

NIACIN

This dude helps out in the energy metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It also aids in the functioning of the digestive system, nervous system, and conversion of food into energy for normal growth and development.

VITAMIN B6

Helps produce antibodies in the immune system & maintain normal nerve function. It is required for the metabolism of amino acids and fatty acids. Vitamin B6 also helps regulate blood glucose and is critical to the development of the brain and nervous system of a baby.

VITAMIN E

This is a powerful antioxidant and serves as the body’s main defense against free radicals. It forms part of the cell membrane of red and white blood cells and it protects polyunsaturated fatty acids. Vitamin E is also crucial for normal nerve development.

CALCIUM

Lets start with the obvious... Calcium is important in bone and teeth formation. It also helps to maintain a normal blood pressure and plays an essential role in blood clotting.

POTASSIUM

Helps the body grow and maintain homeostasis . It also helps maintain normal water balance between the cells and body fluids, electrolyte balance, cell integrity and is critical to maintaining a heartbeat.

IRON

Iron is required in our bodies to make new cells, amino acids, hormones and neurotransmitters.

ZINC

Zinc aids protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism and supports the immune system, growth, development and reproduction, wound healing, healthy skin, nails and eyes.

WHOAAAA. That's a lot of nutrition right there & i've only just begun. To find out more about the vitamins & minerals that you find in hemp you can visit happy-hemp.com.

Now onto the debate:

Raw Vs. Toasted

You can find either whole hemp seeds or hemp hearts when shopping around. (hemp hearts have had the hull removed & are soft not crunchy.)

Which one do you want?? Well it depends on what your hemp goals are.

I encourage you to try them both & share the happiness.

The raw can be thrown into smoothies, yogurt, granola, cookies, or even an Eggocoado. Hemp seeds have the highest smoke point of any nut or seed, so cooking with it = perfection.

The toasted can be tossed with a salad, ground to rim a margarita glass, thrown onto some perfectly cooked shrimp or simply eaten as a powerful snack!

Next time you're in the Kor180 studio make sure to pick up a bag of Happy Hemp!
