Hemp meat – is this the answer to all of our food desires? We learned earlier that animal meat can cause inflammation – this is information that might be news to many.
If inflammation is the root cause of all disease and most infectious diseases in humans come from animals (and inflammation), the next logical step is to reduce and remove animal consumption from our diet.
What do we replace it with? Animal meat is high in protein and is everywhere in our society. It turns out there is a miracle replacement called Hemp Meat:
“By weight, hemp seeds contain similar levels of protein to beef and lamb meat. With 25% of their calories coming from protein, just 30 grams of hemp seeds, or 2-3 tablespoons, contain around 11 grams of protein. More than this, hemp seeds are considered a complete protein source- something rare in the plant world- meaning that they provide all the essential amino acids that can only be attained by diet.
But that isn’t all. Hemp seeds are also rich in healthy fats and essential fatty acids as well as vitamins and minerals like vitamin E, iron, potassium, magnesium, calcium, sulfur, zinc, and sodium. “https://www.labroots.com/trending/cannabis-sciences/18764/hemp-based-meat-contains-protein-beef
Hemp can be turned into a flour or meal, which can then be used to create meat replacements. As noted above – hemp is a complete protein source. There are a few companies already working to create meat replacements that have higher fiber and protein content then animal meat.
The best part about switching from animal meat to hemp based meats is that hemp meat is anti-inflammatory, with all the benefits of nutrition, fiber and protein while meat is laden with bacteria that creates endotoxins and inflammation in the bloodstream.
Hemp seeds are particularly rich in these healthy fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Both of these fats are known for improving heart health by reducing cholesterol, blood pressure, and triglycerides. Adding hemp oil to your diet may reduce your risk of heart problems in the futurehttps://www.webmd.com/diet/hemp-health-benefits-nutrition-uses
Once our society learns about inflammation causing foods in our diet, our society can shift to healthy alternatives that taste just as good, if not better and without any of the suffering.
Our nutrition and food is big part of our lifestyle – the amount of money in these industries could be focused on creating new foods which could transform the world (and make just as much, if not more money).
