What are the benefits of a plant based diet?

Apr 18th 2023

Plant based diets have become more and more adopted by those looking to practice healthier habits. Benefits of a plant based diet include:

- lower risk of heart disease

- weight management

- improved blood sugar control

- reduced risk of certain cancers

- better digestion 

- lower risk of kidney disease. 

Of course, diets aren't one size fits all, and a plant based diet may not be suitable for everyone, especially for people with certain health conditions or nutrient deficiencies. It's important to consult with a doctor or registered dietitian before making drastic changes to your diet.

If you are looking to introduce more plants to your diet, or crowd out non-vegan products, hemp food products might be a great place for you to start!

Hemp hearts have 10 grams of protein in just 3tbs, and hemp protein has 27g of protein per serving, making them easy to add as a protein boost to smoothies, dips, sauces, toppings, and more! 

Hemp bars might be a great replacement to whey protein based bars as they have the strength of hemp proteins noted above, while also being easier to digest than whey protein. Our hemp hearts combine hemp protein with cashew butter and flavors like chocolate, lemon, and birthday cake to make for a filling, and most importantly, tasty snack! 

Hemp foods make a great addition to your diet, especially when trying to adopt a more plant based diet. Shop Evo Hemp Products now!
