Is a change of diet on your radar? This Healthy Hemp Heart Clean Green Smoothie is for you. Dairy free, gluten free and sugar free. Get your New Year’s resolutions started in the right direction.
Healthy eating is my new plan. How about you? I know I am looking to change my diet. Thank god the major holiday eating only happens once a year. Yes, I know we have other holidays to celebrate, but let’s be honest, we don’t overeat during those as much.
If you are like me, smoothies are a great, easy way to get tasty nutrition into your body. Perfect for breakfast, lunch and also after a workout (another area I need to focus on). We did get some snow shoes for Christmas. Snow is falling, now I just have to wait for the temperatures to warm up (great for the penguins and polar bears). This has been the coldest winter in over 30 years. Wait, it has only been winter for 3 weeks. OMG!!!
Healthy Hemp Heart Facts
Have you tried hemp hearts? Little nutritious gems packed with protein. A great way to get an energy boost. Easy to add to recipes or just eat as a snack on their own. They come in a variety of flavours too. What do you call them? Hemp hearts or hemp seeds? Whichever you choose, adding them to your healthy eating is easy and delicious.
This Healthy Hemp Heart Clean Green Smoothie is so easy to make. With no added dairy, gluten or sugar, clean eating is simple and delicious. It doesn’t get easier than throwing everything in a blender. Blitz, pour and drink! Easy as 1-2-3. Let’s see if I can figure out a way to make exercise this easy too.
For this clean eating smoothie I combined spinach, apple, strawberries, hemp hearts, water and ice. I know, simple right? Even my hubby who LOVES (and I mean LOVES) sweet stuff didn’t even need any additional sweetener. Good thing, he wasn’t going to get any either. If I can do this, so can he. We are in this together whether he likes it or not.
So much nutrition with really no effort. I wish exercising was this easy. Spinach is such an awesome green superfood, and it makes this smoothie such a nice colour. Fibre from the apple, sweetness from the strawberries, and protein from the hemp makes this smoothie great for any time of day. You won’t believe how calorie wise it is too.
Hemp Heart Recipes
I have used hemp hearts in other recipes too. With Valentine’s just around the corner, you don’t have to throw your new found healthy eating out the window. My Hemp Heart Cookies are perfect to celebrate with. Gluten free delicious cookies dipped in dark chocolate.
If you want to start your day with chocolate (like many people do), Hemp Chocolate Smoothie with Raspberries & Pomegranates might be just what you are looking for. Nutrition can be totally delicious.
Lots of people associate healthy eating with bland and boring. Add in the term “clean eating” and watch people scatter. In fact, we have a friend who detested the thought of eating this way. That same friend has now lost major pounds (and feels so much better) making smart eating choices.
Healthy Hemp Heart Clean Green Smoothie is a positive step in the right direction. So much delicious nutrition packed into a glass. Hope you give it a try.
