In this day, where everyone is trying to be more conscious about what putting into our bodies, we (at least, I am) are looking for helpful ideas to make healthy choices and providing a good healthy meal for ourselves and our families. Manitoba has a great product that meets that criteria and tastes great. Hemp Hearts and Hemp Oil is one way of doing that.
First of all there are many advantages to choosing Hemp and including it in your diet. Hemp contains all 10 essential amino acids and is vegan friendly! It’s also easy to digest as hemp easily assimilates into your body. And Hemp is also packed with Omega-3 and Omega-6 which has huge benefits. Let’s not forget is also has Chlorophyll, Vitamin E, Vitamin B and Folic Acid to name a few.
One of the products that Manitoba Harvest produces of Hemp Oil. This oil makes a great dressing and is perfect for salads. When I first tried it, it reminded me of an Olive Oil, however not as harsh a taste, with a nuttier flavor. Manitoba Harvest also has the 30 day Hemp Oil challenge, where you are challenged to consume 1-2 tablespoons a day for 30 days. There are several testimonies and huge list of benefits to doing this. Check it out for yourself.
Another treat produced by Manitoba Harvest is the ever popular Hemp Hearts. These taste great and Dr. Oz even refers to them as “brain food”. The great thing about Hemp Hearts is they can be incorporated into just about any meal. However in our home they are a hit sprinkled on some yogurt to get your day going. Our girls have started to demand them every morning. I prefer having some mixed into my eggs as they are cooking. As you can see, the possibilities are endless. Just the other day I even tried frying pork chops using the Hemp Hearts as a breading. I can guarantee that will not be the last time this will be had in our home.
Manitoba Harvest is a great company with some great products. I would encourage you to check out some of their butters, organic line, and protein products. If you are looking for a healthy way to get your diet working for you, try any of the products from Manitoba Harvest.
Our daughters love the hemp hearts sprinkled on top of yogurt with some fresh berries, Mmm! I put them into almost anything. I add them to my oatmeal, I sprinkle them on soups and stews, I add them when I bake banana bread…and like I already mentioned, they make a delicious breading too!
