Happy Hemp Day!
How are you doing?
I’m often talking about eating hemp and many of you contact me, asking for recipe ideas to include hemp.
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.
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) and I love using Good Hemp Hearts, Milk and Oil.
You can get hemp based foods in all good health shops and even some supermarkets, like Waitrose. And online at places, like, Amazon and many other places.
Below is a hemp based tempeh bites recipe suggestion for you to try. They are vegan and family friendly!

Some benefits of including hemp in your daily diet:
- Hemp seeds contain ALL 9 essential amino acids.
- Hemp seeds contain more usable protein per gram than almost all other foods.
- 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.

Want to Infuse with CBD?
To infused your Crispy Jemp Tempeh Bites with CBD you can add your daily dose to your hemp seed oil, salt and pepper mix, when coating the tempeh, mix well and treat as normal.
I like to add about 20 drops per meal prep with this recipe. 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.
