About Aloha Hemp Conscious Eats::
Conscious Eats is filled with simple, yet delicious family-style recipes that are plant-based and focused on a “hemp” theme. As a mom and dad of 5 fast-growing boys and girls, Clint and Shelly turned their favorite childhood cravings into planted-based dishes with a delicious uplifting twist.
What inspired Clint and Shelly to create this cookbook?
After Clint and Shelly naturally beat a bad staph infection at the end of 2021, they knew they were onto something special. They were in the process of finishing a new off-grid home with Shelly’s parents, moving out of their recently sold home, and trusting God to guide them in those unforeseen times and opportunities to strengthen their gut, mind, and spirit.
So, why the hemp theme you may ask?
For one, hemp goes with Clint and Shelly’s Aloha Hemp CBD company, which they so passionately love. Second, hemp seeds are a very sacred protein with so many positive health benefits. Hemp seeds are also low in phytic acid/lectins and are super easy to digest unlike many other nuts and seeds
Why Conscious Eats?
- It was created by experience and learning a little science behind the food we consume. Most foods, including plant-based foods, contain phytic acid or lectins. These two properties help plants and trees from overconsumption by anyone species (ref: Food Sense). However, the phytic acids when consumed in our body leave our organs inflamed and our nutrients improperly absorbed. When we culture or ferment our grains, and some Whole Foods, such as tomatoes, kale, and cabbage, we add beneficial bacteria and decrease the phytic acid. Also, culturing/fermenting our food assists us to discover practices and rituals surrounding what we are consuming. This helps us shed light on the consciousness within and our beliefs about ourselves and others. Having a strong, healthy body and gut raises the vibrational state within, which allows life to start flowing with less friction and more love.
What recipes are in the cookbook?
Each recipe is filled with vibrant, earth-friendly, family-centered plant food and prepared with love by all their children. In Conscious Eats, you’ll discover their favorite hemp-themed recipes including soups, puddings, sandwiches, hemp cheese, hemp “tofu”, hemp hot cocoa, main dishes, and more.
