Hemp seeds are an excellent source of plant-based protein, fiber, omega fatty acids, and they also happen to be a great source of healthy fat. Try sprinkling some over oatmeal, blended into smoothies, or enjoyed over an acai bowl.
#2 Chia Seeds
Speaking of seeds, chia seeds are another plant-based superfood to always have stocked in your kitchen. They are also rich in fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids. You can use them to make chia pudding, blend them into smoothies, or even mix them into homemade energy bites.
Also known as blue green algae, did you know that spirulina is actually an amazing source of protein? You can mix this superfood into things like smoothies for an added plant-based boost.
