Hemp Protein no-bake "cheesecake"
I've fallen in love with the wonder of hulled hemp seeds (aka hearts), tastes like walnut meat, bland/sweet, VLCarb...super pure protein with all essential amino acids- ideal as meat replacement for plant based diet.

I'm Stage 4 kidney disease patient, a LCHF diet is ideal if I substitute hemp protein/eggs for any meat/fish. I eat nuts, full fat dairy, and veggies in abundance. I still stay <40 carbs a day, am losing weight, enjoy satiety. A low protein/amino acid supplemented diet spares kidney function, and helps avoid dialysis. Nutritional Ketosis makes calorie restriction enjoyable. Healthy kidneys can process higher protein, but for CKD'ers a non-meat diet has been proven to reduce oxidative waste processing, support function.
