We love plant-based meals, and this one is a simple version with a great tweak provided by the Beet Hummus.
Hemp Seeds 101
Lots of plant-based protein, Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, and Iron – besides having a delicious nutty taste – what is there not to like about Hemp Seeds ;o)
I often get asked how to use hemp seeds on a daily base. I like mine sprinkled on a salad, use them as a replacement for a coat for a fish or chicken dish, or coat my veggies in them.
Lots of Healthy Nutrients
Beets are loaded with Potassium, Folate, Vitamin C and Fiber and low in calories and fat. Hummus provides per tablespoon a little bit more than 1g of Protein. A perfectly healthy combination!
Potatoes are a great source of healthy carbohydrates. But to many unknown, they are really high in Vitamin C! Support your immune system by simply prepping on by boiling it for 30-60 min, depending on the size. This will also increase your Potassium and Vitamin B6 intake.
