Over the past few months I have heard on and off about hemp hearts! I really had NO idea what they really were, and was a bit nervous to try them! The only hemp item I own is a necklace…and that did not sound appetizing!
Well, thanks to my fabulous partnership with Sweat Pink, I received a little sample from Manitoba Harvest!!! (They have a pretty awesome website where you can purchase items as well and get some great recipes!)
When my little package arrived I was so excited! I did not really know what to do with them at first, but I decided to just added them to my normal everyday eats!
For being so tiny, these seeds have a LOT of nutritional value! I was especially happy to learn more about how much protein they have! I am always on the lookout for easy and natural ways to add more protein to my life!
I found out that the hemp hearts have 10g of protein per serving, while flax seeds only have 5g and chia seeds only have 4g! (This is based on an average). Of course, I will keep eating all three items, but it is good to know for extra plant based protein!
Some cool info I found on the Manitoba Harvest Website:
Some of the benefits that I loved
* Whole, plant based protein
* Packed full of Omega 3s and 6s
* Aid in digestion and weight management
* Hemp Hearts are non-gmo
* Beneficial for overall health!
