plants are one of the two groups into which all living things were traditionally divided; the other is animals.
protein is made up of building blocks called amino acids, nine of which can’t be synthesized by our bodies, so we have to get them from food.
While there are an abundance of plant protein options available, let’s start here… MOTHER. NATURE.
Listed below are just a few of the plant proteins we have carefully selected and will find throughout our menu!
spirulina. A blue-green algae, spirulina is a highly bioavailable complete protein containing all essential amino acids. At 60% protein (the highest of any natural food), it’s a plant-based protein powerhouse that landed a top spot in some of our BEE BLENDS.
hemp seeds are another bioavailable complete protein rivaled only by spirulina! With a perfect ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 EFA’s (essential fatty acids), hemp seeds are a simple and great addition to our BEE BLENDS!
maca derives from a plant indigenous to the high Andes of Peru and has proven highly effective in combating anemia and chronic fatigue while promoting adrenal functionality. We were drawn to maca as it is a known natural mood enhancer! BEE HAPPY!
chia seeds AKA the “ultimate runner’s food”. This non-GMO complete protein is high in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, phytonutrients and antioxidants. Chia has been shown to promote heart health, boost endurance, increase oxygen uptake and impede dehydration.
