Happy Hemp Day!
How are you doing?
I know things are difficult for many at the moment with all these Coronavirus fears, isolation amd lockdowns. I just want you to know my inbox is always open and I’m a good listener. We gotta stay positive and support each other through this. Message me anytime.
On with what I’m here to talk about…
I’m often talking about hemp protein and many of you contact me, asking for recipe ideas to include hemp protein.
One of the quickest and easiest ways to incorporate hemp protein into your day is to add into food prep and having your muffins to hand when you want them, so you can top up your daily protein intake with very little effort or messing about.
How much Protein does our body actually need?
Well it varies on individual but most active adults could do with consuming about 1 gram of protein per lb or 2.2 grams per kg of bodyweight. (depending on how you measure)
You want to be ensuring you’re getting enough protein in your diet to make sure you feel satiated and are allowing your body to repair.
Sometimes getting protein in with just food alone can be hard, so I suggest supplementing with a good quality complete protein powder.
My favourites is Raised Spirit Hemp Protein, both the plain and Cacao versions are awesome, you can save 10% by entering code: JEMLOCAL (button below)
You can get good quality protein powders in all good health shops and even some supermarkets, like Waitrose these days.
What you to look for when buying protein powder:
- You want a good quality, complete protein. That hasn’t been sweetened or have any bad preservatives in.
- Is it a complete protein?
- Is it sweetened?
- If so with something natural
- Is it organic?
- Is it a certified product?
- If you answered no to any of the above, then I would avoid.
Any ingredients ending in ‘ose’
- Does it contain anything else-meal replacement, ingredients can spell/pronounce?
- If you answered yes to any of the above, then I would avoid.
Below is one of my fave hemp based recipes for you to try.
Hope you enjoy as much as I do…if you make please tag me on any pics you share. I love seeing you guys share my recipes.

Some benefits of including hemp in your daily diet:
- Hemp seeds contain ALL 9 essential amino acids.

- Hemp seeds do not contain trypsin inhibitors.
- Hemp seed contains easily digestible protein.
- Hemp seeds contain the perfect 2.5 : 1 balance of essential fatty acids.
- Hemp seed farming is beneficial to the environment.
Want to Infuse with CBD?
To infuse your muffins with CBD you can add your daily dose, times 12 to your mix, when mixing and treat as normal.
I like to add a couple of drops per muffin, so 24 drops per 12 muffins. I like to use Flawsome Jem CBD 10%/1000mg CBD Tincture.
There are so many hemp and CBD products on the market these days, it can be a minefield.
