Protein Packed Hemp Seeds


Why hemp seeds offer optimal nutrition for your body

Summer is here and the last thing you want to do is stand by a hot stove cooking all day, right? If you are new to eating raw hemp seeds, this is the perfect recipe to get you started.This simple hemp breakfast/snack will fill you with enduring energy, and nourish you as well; the best part is they are so simple to prepare anyone can do it! One tablespoon of hemp seed yields 4 grams of protein! Read on to find out some of the benefits that hemp seeds can offer you.

Hemp offers numerous health benefits to its users. Some of these include but are not limited to:

  • Hemp seeds are easily digestible by the human body
  • Our bodies absorb hemp protein quickly, making it an ideal protein source for athletes
  • Hemp seeds serve as a complete protein source
  • Hemp seeds contain all the EAA's-(Essential Amino Acids)
  • Hemp proteins aid in not only muscle repair, but is also a muscle building agent
  • Hemp protein is gluten free
  • Diabetics can safely eat hemp seeds
  • Low in sodium
  • Low in cholesterol
  • Great source of iron,zinc, and magnesium
  • Non-Dairy

Now that you have decided to integrate hemp into your diet, you should probably be aware of the proper storage methods for this super-food. Since hemp seeds are rich in essential fatty acids, they do have a tendency to go rancid very quickly if they are not stored properly. You can easily extend the shelf life by storing your hemp seed bounty in a dark, airtight container in the refrigerator. They can be stored in this manner for up to twelve weeks, if they last that long!

Quick Hemp Cereal

  • ½ cup bran flakes
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. hemp seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. cacao nibs
  • 1 tsp wheat germ
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened dried cranberries (use whatever dried berry you like)
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. salt (I omit this)
  • 1 Tbsp. shredded coconut

Briefly toss with spoon to mix ingredients. Top the mixture with 1 tsp. honey of your choice and enjoy with any type of yogurt or milk. I find this is best with unsweetened almond milk. I will eat hemp seeds with any flavor yogurt, but plain is my favorite!

Remember, anytime you are looking for a pop of extra omega 3 and omega 6 along with a protein boost; just sprinkle some hemp seeds onto your dish.
