Healthy Hemp

Hemp Seed

Have you tried this wonderful little seed yet? It’s a hulled hemp seed. It’s a nutritional powerhouse, packed with all of the essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) and with a balanced source of essential fatty acids (Omega 3, 6, & 9), just a couple tablespoons delivers around 10 grams of protein and a healthy dose of these “good fats.”

I’ve been adding it to my post-workout morning smoothie and it’s also a must have for this tasty dressing. But you can also try it sprinkled into salads, cereals or as a non-dairy milk-like beverage when blended with water and dates. You can even get pretty creative with these healthy hemp recipes.

Find it in health food stores or co-ops, or order it here or here.
