Hemp Foods by Manitoba Harvest


Hemp is considered a wonder food by vegans everywhere, labeled brain food by Dr. Oz and is even said to have the ability to save the planet.  Needless to say, if you haven't been utilizing this amazing resource then you're surely missing out.






Simply put, Hemp is a marvel with innumerable uses.  Let's focus on Hemp's nutritional benefits to see why it's hailed as a wonder food.

Hemp is high in protein and is the richest plant source of Essential Fatty Acids, such as Omega 6 and 3 which are found in the human brain.  A lack or loss of these EFAs have been found in Alzhimizers and Parkinson's disease.   

 Hemp also contains Gamma Linoleic Acid known as GLA.  A couple weeks ago I did some research on GLA and I found that it's a dieters friend.   Among it many benefits it has the ability to increase metabolism and aide the body to utilize stored fat as energy.  Low levels of GLA are even linked to obesity.




Since my goal is to get back into shape, I've wisely added Hemp Hearts by Manitoba Harvest into my daily diet.





Manitoba Harvest is a Canadian based company that has been in the business of producing hemp products since 1998.  Their products meet the strictest criterion and are certified organic.   I like that they use cold-pressed technology to process their hemp.  This technology is important because it keeps the hemp pure, thus protecting its nutritional properties.

Hemp Hearts are delicious, to me they taste like finely chopped walnuts.  I mainly use them to doctor up protein shakes and in cereal, but as you can see there are a ton of scrumptious things you can do with these versatile little seeds.

Hemp Hearts; A Dieter's friend

Because Hemp Hearts contain all good stuff including healthy fats they are proving to be a valuable diet companion.    My routine mainly consist of protein shake with Hemp Hearts for breakfast and lunch.  They're filling and help to keep me satisfied longer, so I'm able to keep my caloric intake low during the day.

The healthy fats, such as contained in Hemp Hearts are essential to keeping the body healthy as well as enabling the body to burn and better utilize stored fat.  If your looking for a tasty diet-friendly food packed with nutrients then you may want to check out Hemp Hearts.

What I really love about this product is all of the health benefits and also the fact that you can pretty much incorporate it into any recipe or even cereal without noticing it is even there. That is great for picky little children...my son is the major picky one and I could slip it in on just about everything he eats without him knowing...how devious of me. :-)

Love that hemp has more omega 3s than salmon. We recently bought Hemp Hearts for the first time and fell in love!
