  • ​Do you have a sweet tooth? Most of the sugar we eat should come from sugars naturally found in nutritious foods like whole fruits. Added sugars in processed foods and drinks are empty calories and can add up fast, increasing the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
  • Hemp hearts contain heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids which help lower inflammation. They are also high in fibre and a source of protein. One serving of this smoothie provides about as much protein as 1 egg. Protein is the most satisfying nutrient, helping you feel full for longer. Digesting protein also burns more calories than digesting fat or carbohydrates does.
  • Hemp seeds are high in magnesium, a mineral that helps control blood sugar and blood pressure and is needed for healthy bones.
