Hemp And Chia Seeds: Low-Carb Superfoods You Need To Know About

Filed under: Health,New Product — @ July 13, 2010

In Episode 380 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from Canadian health food activist Ruth Shamai from Ruth’s Hemp Foods who shares more about the rare omega-3 rich additions to a healthy diet coming from hemp and chia seeds. You may not know much about these sources of healthy nutrition which is why I wanted to have an expert on the podcast to educate us all. Listen to Ruth tell us about her journey to creating a company using hemp and chia seed products, her vacillation between being a vegetarian and an omnivore and her current revelations about meat, the abomination of factory farming and her theory about the lack of land to produce the amount of grass-fed meat for everyone to consume, the essential nature of animals for growing vegetables, why hemp is healthy and her role in getting it legalized to sell in Canada, the high-protein, high omega-3 fats, and low-carb nature of the hemp seed, why there are more omega-6 fats than omega-3, the reasons why you should consume chia seeds, including the omaga-3 fats, fiber, and various other vitamins and minerals, why hydrating chia seeds is so important, and the chia revolution happening with marathon runners.
