Hemp seeds

I have added yet another seed to my list of ingredients that I blend in my smoothie every morning. List is now flaxseed, sunflower, sesame and hemp.

Why hemp seeds? I know this may sound a little bit crazy but hemp seeds are said to be very good for your health in many ways.

  • Hemp seeds contain all 9 essential amino acids
  • They also contain essential fatty acids Omega 6 and Omega 3 in a ratio of 3:1. Body requires a 3:1 or 4:1 balance of Omega 6 to Omega 3 for good health.
  • Cause no allergic reactions ( I can not validate this myself as I am not allergic to nuts or seeds.)
  • Contains Vitamin E

Hemp seeds improve the immune system, dry skin condition, cardiovascular circulation and reduce many symptoms of muscle and joint pains. Definitely a super food to add to the list and have in house.

Have a long, happy and healthy life.

Fats that heal

Udo Ersamus,  cholesterol myth buster and guru of fats, writer of the book, “Fats that heal, Fats that kill”, made a blended oil of all essential fats in one. Ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fats is 2:1. Remaining meals during the day will balance the omega-3 and omega-6 down to a healthy level required for good health.

Udo’s Choice Oil Blend can be found at www.udoerasmus.com plus the feedback from customers. Many have lost weight, gained energy and cured a number of diseases.

Now, I have created my own blend from flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and coconut flakes, Mix contains 6 tsp flax, 2 tsp sunflower, 2 tsp sesame and 2 tsp desiccated coconut, which I add to my green smoothie or grind and spread the mix over some yoghurt. By the way that is exactly the seeds I am taking with me on holidays.

Have a long, happy and healthy life.
