8 Superfoods You Probably Aren’t Eating

2. Hemp Seeds

Hemp seeds are a great source of omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 is made up of three acids EPA, DHA, and ALA. ALA can be found in hemp seeds, flax seeds, and chia seeds. Hemp seeds also have more protein than milk or eggs and they’re easier to digest than both of them. Ground the seeds down and try them out in this vegan cheesecake.

I often eat adzuki beans, but unfortunately, some of these superfoods are expensive, such as jerusalem artichokes, spirulina, and hemp seeds.

I put spirulina along with chlorella, beet root powder, milk thistle seed, flax, chia, green tea powder, MSM, moringa powder, organic red maca powder and bee pollen powder in my smoothie every morning with 1 banana, 1cup strawberries and 1 cup blueberries. I'm pretty sure I have all my bases covered. Good article, thanks
