Add Hemp to Your Diet

31 Aug

hemp-seed-toasted-blog[1]Several years ago, I discovered hemp seeds.  Hemp seeds come from the same hemp plant renowned for its durable fiber.  They are available in many different forms, including toasted, roasted, and milled.  Hemp seeds contain the perfect balance of essential amino acids for sustaining good health, and an ideal 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 essential fatty acids.  Hemp seeds also compare favorably to flax seed.

Hemp seeds have a delicious nutty, crunchy taste (I like the hulled hemp seeds best), and can be enjoyed as a snack or added to salads, Greek yogurt, pasta, soup, sauce, and meat.  They taste similar to sunflower seeds and pine nuts.  In addition to a dose of healthy fats, one serving of hemp seeds also boasts an impressive 10 grams of protein.

Hemp seeds are an excellent source of calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper, and manganese.

To learn more about and try hemp seed products, check out my friend Brad Ervin’s company, Hippie Butter (hippiebutter.com or 972-354-4504).  Brad is the CHO (Chief Hemp Officer) at Hippie Butter, and he’d love to hear from you.  Please tell him you were referred by me.
