5 Superfoods for Your Heart ❤️

Happy Saturday! 

It has been another incredible week in the studio! We can celebrate the love we have for our bodies through movement and change our perspective to view exercise as worship- that is how you live transformed!  While exercise is a way to honor your body, eating nutritious, healing, and nourishing foods is another way to live transformed.  Exercise and nutrition are also a vital piece of keeping your hearts healthy! We want to share five superfoods for your heart and a fun, new recipe to try! 


1. Hemp Hearts. Hemp hearts are they "heart" of a shelled hemp seed. They are rich in protein and have the almost highest balance of proteins, fats, vitamins, and enzymes. They have been shown to decrease blood pressure, as well as lower the risks of colon and prostate cancer. Also, they can relieve indigestion because they have no known allergens.  Sprinkle hemp hearts on your salad, yogurt, or smoothie. 

2. Avocado is full of healthy fats and contains many vital nutrients and fibers that your body and heart need. Avocado offers nutrients so that you can have a healthy heart! 

3. Leafy Greens contain a nitrate content. This nitrate content allows the heart to pump blood more efficiently and allows for an overall better blood flow. 

4. Tomatoes have nutrients that are found to help prevent cardiovascular disease. Additionally, tomatoes have nutrients that can protect and reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. 

5. Berries are a source of micro nutrients and fiber. They support your heart through decreased activity of carbohydrate digestive enzymes and inhibit inflammatory gene expression and foam cell formation. If the cell formation and gene expression is not kept under control, it can result in heart disease and a lower, decreased heart health.  Raspberries are the highest in fiber, lowest in sugar fruit! Enjoy!

The Many Benefits of Hemp Hearts & delicious recipes!

Happy Wednesday friends! Today we wanted to post a quick blog about one of our favorite superfoods! Many people haven't heard of hemp hearts and if this is you- you are in for a treat! These tiny seed-like hearts pack in so  many amazing nutrients and can be easily added into so many things! You can find this superfood at most grocery stores! 

Hemp hearts are the “heart” of a shelled hemp seed. They are considered a “superfood” because they are rich in protein. They have almost the highest balance of proteins, fats, vitamins, and enzymes. Hemp hearts have been shown to decrease blood pressure, as well as lower the risks of colon and prostate cancer. 

Hemp hearts can relieve indigestion because they have no known allergens. So people that are gluten intolerant, for example, can eat hemp hearts and have no problems. Hemp hearts are also good at suppressing the appetite. They can also give you an added boost of energy! Some hemp hearts may contain fatty acids and no cholesterol, which can help lower cholesterol. 

How to Eat Hemp Hearts:

Sprinkle them on a salad

Blend them into a smoothie

Add them to cereal, both hot and cold

Bake them in your favorite treats for an added boost of protein

Eat them plain

Use them instead of nuts in a recipe
