Satch tells us a couple more super foods to include into our diets. Hemp Seeds - Hemp seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. A three-tablespoon serving of hemp seeds provides a whopping 10 grams of protein. More importantly it is considered a complete protein, meaning they contain all the essential amino acids, making the protein comparable to ones found in eggs and meat.

How to eat it: Sprinkle a serving over any stir-fry, salad or oatmeal dish. They are also a great addition to any to any fruit salad. Jessica likes to sprinkle it on her gluten-free toast with almond butter :)

photoOatmeal - When it comes to eating breakfast in the morning, oatmeal may be one of the best options available. Oatmeal helps to spike your energy levels, fuel your brain first thing in the morning, and provide you with a supply of fuel for hours. This hearty meal is also filled with high levels of soluble fiber that protect your heart and arteries by lowering cholesterol. Oatmeal can also help promote weight loss and lower your risk of heart disease.

How to eat it: To choose the densest oatmeal (least refined) and still have it be quick enough to prepare in the morning, soak your oats overnight in water or almond milk in a dish. Or, you can prepare "overnight oats" by combining 1/3 cup of oats, 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk and 1/2 cup of fruit in a jar with the lid sealed. Then it's ready to grab and go in the morning (or you can re-heat it if you prefer it hot).
