Breast cancer patients can exhibit an increased demand for protein. Tumors utilize glucose as their main source of energy supply. Thus, a diet supplying the cancer patient with sufficient protein while restricting the sugars tumors thrive on is a helpful strategy in improving breast cancer patients healthy recovery.
This protein-rich recipe includes hemp protein powder which is not marijuana. The two plants are distant relatives, having similar physical appearances and structures but little more. Marijuana flowers contain a chemical called THC which, when heated and ingested, causes intoxication. Marijuana has been used for this reason as a medicine for thousands of years.
Hemp, on the other hand, contains 0.00% THC, so has no narcotic effect on people. Hemp has never been used as a medicine; it has strictly been used primarily as a fiber plant and secondarily as a food crop. Hemp can only be grown with a government issued a permit and requires mandatory lab testing to ensure that all hemp grown contains 0.00% THC.
With this in mind, we wish to share this protein rich recipe.
