Always strive for quality over quantity. Simply saying, the source of ingredients matters. This also holds true in basically all aspects of life. But for now, we’re talking food, and nutritious food at that. Selecting your bacon and eggs should be done thoughtfully. It is well worth it to spend more to get stress free eggs and bacon, with deep, golden yolks like a sunset, and thick grass fed bacon slabs. I know they say that pigs have adapted to concentrated feed, but there are plenty of smaller farmers out there that let their pigs graze on pastured land, and they pick up far more nutrients from the soil, and general roughage, and also don't have a problem putting on any size. Finding these pork gems is a must. The meat is incredible. Also thicker is better, and less is more when it comes to selecting bacon. So 1-2(thick) and 2-3(thin) strips of bacon per person is plenty. There is a big difference between poorly raised hogs and confined chickens, and carefully farmed animals. Hold the bread, unless you’ve just whipped up some awesome nootropic, almond meal/flour bread. It’s seriously tasty, and seriously good for you.
Not Your Ordinary Green Sauce and Not Your Ordinary Breakfast
This recipe highlights the nutty flavor of the traditional pesto a lot of people are used to. What differs is the mixture of green leaves that will be used and the addition of nootropics, specifically Mind unflavored. Spinach, arugula and parsley, the most accessible leafy greens that can be bought almost anywhere, and Mind make this green sauce a brain packed power food. Since the conventional pesto recipe uses pine nuts, which is high in carbohydrates, hemp hearts will be substituted to contribute the nutty, cheesy texture. Mind will provide all the necessary brain nutrients, fat burning compounds, and collagen for recovery.
Essential Nootropic Benefits of Hemp Hearts
Hemp is composed of 30% fat and is rich in two essential fatty acids namely: linolenic acid, also known as omega-6 and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3). In addition, this also contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which is an omega 6 that is connected to several health advantages. GLA is good for your skin, namely psoriasis, sclerosis, and eczema, but that is merely superficial. Dig a little deeper and you'll find that GLA is used to prevent cancer, and specifically assists in breast cancer treatment to improve recovery. GLA also lowers cholesterol levels, and decreases your risk of heart disease.
Hemp seeds contain nitric oxide, a gas molecule that makes blood vessels dilate and relax. Thus, hemp seeds help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Almost 25% of the calories that hemp seeds contain are from protein. It contains essential amino acids and makes a complete protein source.
It’s also noteworthy that hemp hearts have an effect in decreasing breast pain, tenderness, irritability, and depression attributed to pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS).

Soluble fiber is a great source of nutrients that benefit digestive bacteria, and can also reduce high fluctuations in blood sugar, and regulate cholesterol levels.
