Chocolate Hemp Protein Cake with a Casein & Yogurt Protein Frosting

Chocolate Hemp Protein Cake with a Casein & Yogurt Protein Frosting

Ingredients:

2 small cooked beetroots
3/4 cup chocolate hemp protein powder
3/4 cup liquid egg whites
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon baking powder

Directions:

1. Blended and baked for ~1 hour at 180 C (356 F) in a rectangular brownie pan (stab it and remove it from the oven when your knife comes out clean, it might be a bit over or a bit under 1 hour)

2. When the cake was done, I cut three circle out of it using a cake ring. I let it cool and, when it cooled, I made the frosting by mixing 1/2 cup of unflavored casein + half a tablespoon of stevia + 1 tablespoon of vanilla essence + one small pot of 0% Greek yogurt (170g).

3. Yeah, that is IT f or the frosting! I mixed this all together with a spoon and stuffed it into a sandwich bag with a pipping nozzle sticking out of the end.

4. Then, I just tried to do my best at adding some frosting between the layers and then some on top the cake and around it until BOOM: done: fully dressed!

Now, you CAN eat it right away BUT it’s actually a lot nicer if you let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours. Why? Because the frosting kind of sets and the whole thing just comes alive beautifully. Ahhhhh, I had a slice of it next to a pick-me-up cup of tea and my soul was considerably soothed with the cabooming deliciousness of this cake: it was moist, chocolatey, sweet, creamy?

Hemp Repairs Damaged DNA

Hemp Repairs Damaged DNA
Scientists have discovered astounding new evidence that suggests hemp proteins have the capacity to repair damaged DNA — a phenomenon that occurs in all humans as the result of aging.

While the majority of people are aware that DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is present within most living organisms, there is perhaps a larger percentage who are completely oblivious to the fact that this hereditary material accumulates damage in a manner similar to wear and tear on an automobile.

Fortunately, human cells are resilient and are able to fix most of the blemishes that occur each day within our genetic code. Yet, not all of this damage is repairable, which is what scientists believe leads to the body’s inability to heal itself.

Although most of the injuries to DNA are not serious, some damages, like strand breaks, can cause the body to make mistakes during the repair process that can shorten a person’s lifespan.

The good news is that the two primary proteins found in hemp seeds — Edestin and Albumin — can assist the body in repairing damaged DNA that it is otherwise incapable of fixing on its own. Edestin protein, which is only found in hemp seeds, has a makeup similar to blood plasma and has been shown to promote a healthy immune system as well as eliminate stress. Its counterpart, Albumin protein, assists in maintaining the strength of tissues that hold the body together.

“Hemp protein contains all of the 20 known amino acids — including 9 essential amino acids (EAAs). These amino acids are labeled “essential” because the human body can’t produce them on its own. A diet that is deficient of EAAs may lead to degenerative conditions,” according to Global Hemp.

Research shows that consuming hemp seed and hemp seed oil is an ideal method for fixing DNA. This is because hemp contains “the perfect 3:1 ratio” of Omega fatty acids, which are instrumental in the damage done to DNA.

Crunchy Sun Butter Granola Bars with Hemp Hearts

Crunchy Sun Butter Granola Bars with Hemp Hearts
Ingredients
1/2 cup sun butter
1/3 cup honey
3 cups oats (gluten free optional)
3 teaspoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons hemp seeds (optional)
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/3 cup dried blueberries
1/2 teaspoon salt (if your sun butter is not salted)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12 x 9 inch pan with parchment paper.
Add all ingredients to a medium sized bowl and stir until everything is evenly combined and coated with the wet ingredients.
Cook for 20-25 minutes or until the sides of the bars are nicely browned.
Wait until they cool completely before you cut them. Store in an airtight container.
Notes: I am not sure that agave would work in place of the honey because the honey is stickier and helps make the bars crunchy. Let me know the results if you try agave instead!

Substitutes: Any nut butter for the sun butter. Dried apricots, raisins, or dates for the dried blueberries.
