Healthy lovers!


En mi búsqueda por llevar una alimentación súper sana y disfrutar de una salud óptima y un cuerpo radiante he aprendido y probado muchos alimentos. Hoy les platico del hemp: mi súper alimento favorito, es súper completo, tiene muchas propiedades y es fácil de digerir.


Las semillas de hemp contienen 25% de proteína completa, 35% de ácidos grasos (los muy preciados Omega 3 y 6) y 27% de carbohidrátos en forma de fibra dietética. Además, están llenos de vitaminas y minerales incluyendo vitamina A, B1, B2, D y E, así como calcio yhierro.


Hoy en día puedes encontrar hemp enmuchas presentaciones y cada una tiene beneficios un poco diferentes.

CORAZONES DE HEMP

Gracias a su alto contenido en fibra los corazones de semillas de Hemp aportan grandes beneficios al sistema digestivo, ayudando a eliminar eficazmente los desechosintestinales.El equilibrio de los ácidos grasos esenciales se combinan con la proteína completa del hemp promoviendo la recuperación y desarrollo de las células. La alta concentración de ácidos grasos de los corazones de semillas de hemp apoya al transporte de óxigeno a todas las células del cuerpo.


La fibra y la proteína del hemp se mezclan haciendo que se digiera de manera lenta y brindándote energía equilibrada.

¡Es súper fácil de digerir! A mi me gusta agregarle 1 o 2 cdas a mis smoothies y avena. Además puedes preparar tu propia leche de hemp poniendo en la licuadora 1/2 litro de agua, 3 cdas de corazones de hemp, 1/2 cdita de vainilla y 3 dátiles. Lo licúas todo y ¡listo! No necesitas remojar y ni colar.

SEMILLAS DE HEMP

Tiene propiedades muy parecidas a los corazones de hemp, la diferencia es que no le han quitado la cascarita por lo que tiene una consistencia más crunchy, más fibra y minerales.

A mi me gusta comprar las semillas de hemp tostadas y saladas... ¡saben deliciosas! Las disfruto en puñitos solitas como snack o le pongo 1 cda a mis ensaladas, quinoa o arroz.


PROTEÍNA DE HEMP

La proteína de Hemp es de calidad excepcional por la proporción de aminoácidos (AA) que contiene y la estructura de proteína que forma, son veinte los aminoácidos que el cuerpo necesita, la proteína de Hemp contiene todos los aminoácidos esenciales (diez) y ocho aminoácidos no esenciales en cantidades importantes lo que la convierte en una proteína completa, (como carne, leche o huevos).
La proteína de Hemp contiene buenas cantidades de arginina e histidina; ambas importantes durante el crecimiento infantil. También contiene los sulfuro aminoácidos methionina y cysteína, necesarios para la adecuada formación de las enzimas.

¡Además es 100% natural y libre de soya! Es mi suplemento de proteína favorito para cuando estoy haciendo mucho ejercicio. Yo le agrego hasta 2 cdas a mis smoothies.

FIBRA DE HEMP

Si estas buscando incrementar el consumo de fibra esta es una buena opción ya que por en una porción de 30 gr. estarás recibiendo 13 gr de fibra: el 52% de la dosis recomendada. Además al cosumir fibra de hemp también estarás recibiendo proteína y grasas omega.


Le puedes poner a tus smoothies a tu avena y también la puedes utilizar en recetas para hornear.

ACEITE DE HEMP

El hemp es reconocido por la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) por tener el balance perfecto de 3:1 de ácidos grasos esenciales omega 6 a omega 3, necesarios para mantener tu salud en óptimas condiciones. Estas grasas estimulan elsistema termogéniconatural del cuerpo, el cual ayuda a la quema de grasa, y son bien recibidas por cada uno de los músculos delcuerpo, además reduce los niveles en sangre de colesterol LDL y mejor lacirculación cardiovascular.

El aceite de Hempno debe utilizarse para freír. En general, el calor descompone los ácidos grasos esenciales, y se reducen los beneficios nutricionales del aceite. Este es uno de mis aceites favoritos parapreparar aderezos y disfrutarlo con mi quinoa, arroz o verduras a la plancha (le agrego 1 cda una vez que la comida esta en mi plato).

Una vez abierto lo debes de guardar en el refri.

¡¡¡¡¿Qué tal?!!!! ¿se puede pedir más! Un alimento completo, lleno de nutrientes, fácil de digerir y súper versátil.
