Hemp: Superfood

HEMP

The Athlete's Complete Superfood

BY ADAM HART

I’m 8,000 metres above the ground and getting hungry. In the past, I would be quick to ask the flight attendant for a bag of pretzels or cookies, but now I know better.

I am coming back from speaking at a health event in Toronto, where one of my clients was about to run her first marathon. Lucky for me, I have a bag of hemp seeds in my carry-on luggage. Being the No. 1 food I recommend for athletes, this is not an uncommon item for me to possess.

Lanni Marchant’s record-setting marathon sets new pace for Canadian Women’s running

BY CHRIS WELNER

For six weeks this winter in Africa, Lanni Marchant worked on making her case as one of the world’s best marathoners. A lawyer by trade, Marchant stepped into Canadian running’s high court last fall at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon and laid down the fastest marathon ever by a Canadian woman. Her time of 2:27:59.6 broke Silvia Ruegger’s 28-year record by 36 seconds.

But Marchant, of London, Ont., doesn’t expect her record to last another three decades, because she intends to lower it herself.

Seven Superfoods You Must Have in Your Diet

The best foods don’t come in packages

BY REA FREY

It’s hard to know what to eat when we read about fad diets, quick fixes, and complex nutritional information every day. So, how do you drown out the noise? My best advice is to purchase foods without ingredient lists. In my years as a plant-based nutrition specialist and trainer, I’ve learned the best foods don’t come in packages, are natural and haven’t been processed — whether you are a meat eater, a vegetarian or a vegan.
