I bought hemp seeds for the first time yesterday! (as you can see I am very excited about this)
People have been talking about hemp for a while. I always pictured it being some weird dried out green thing. I finally made the effort to find it at the my super market, and I am glad I did. I do not each much meat and am always looking for alternate ways to get in my protein.
Hemp seed is a COMPLETE (easy to digest) protein with all 9 essential amino acids. You can get 11g of protein in just 2 tablespoons... say what? It also has equal parts omega 3 and 6 and has plenty of heart healthy fats. So, hemp seeds are awesome, pretty much.
How to eat hemp seeds? I asked my followers on Instagram and facebook and here is what they said:
- Over salads, protein pancakes and yogurt.
- In smoothies (makes them thicker), dressings, and oatmeal before you eat it!
- Add it into your cauliflower mash potatoes. (Good one!)
How do you eat your hemp seeds? Have you tried hemp milk? Maybe that is my next step.
