Review: Hemp Hearts

 

Hemp Hearts are the best source of protein, the best source of essential fats, the best source of vitamins and the best source of enzymes on the planet. There are also not significant amounts of sugar, carbohydrates or saturated fats. What a super food! These have got to be one of the most diverse foods I have tried--I put them in my salads, eaten them plain and in my yogurt in my morning…and they are delicious in all of these ways. These protein-packed seeds are so nutritious and great to munch on throughout the day. They remind me of softer flax seeds or sesame seeds, but packed with tons of flavor and a lot more versatile. It has a nice nutty flavor 

 
RECIPE
 
As a southern girl at heart, I would trade grits for oatmeal any day. Only issue is that grits are almost always packed with fat (mmmm butter), cheese (more fat) and carbs. Here is a healthy and delicious alternative to that using Hemphearts!
 
Ingredients
  • 3tbs cream of wheat
  • 3tbs Hemp Hearts
  • 2tbs honey (we like honey bunny organic clover honey)
  • 1 1/2 c. Milk (we use whole milk)
  • Top with extra honey and extra milk If desired
Directions

Warm milk on stove, add cream of wheat, Hemp Hearts and honey. Whisk frequently until desired thickness achieved.
