"Hemp is a great choice for anyone looking to add essential omegas and extra protein into their daily diet. Hemp foods are vegetarian and vegan friendly. They are not genetically modified, but ARE kosher certified, pesticide free and some are also organic."
If you had asked me last summer what Hemp Hearts were, I would have said "No Idea." I just love finding new healthy products and was grateful to my doctor who mentioned Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts to me! Hemp Hearts are nutty soft seeds that are quite delicious. They are extremely easy to eat and taste so good on salads. I have not tried baking with them yet, but I'm excited to try it. I'm hoping to whip up something yummy! I've been putting these Hemp Hearts in our smoothies in the morning and my kids just love them! These are such a great way to start the New Year off eating healthy!
Some great health benefits from including Hemp Hearts in your diet are, they are a great source of protein, omegas and fiber. There have also been testimonials that the Hemp Hearts have helped with "arthritis, joint mobility, eczema, hormonal balance, migraines, menopause in women, healthy cholesterol & blood pressure levels and even weight management."
I started Manitoba Harvest with my friends Martin and Alex because hemp foods did wonders for me, and I wanted to share them with the world. Honestly, these nutty little nutrient-packed seeds helped change my life.
In 1995, I was unhealthy and unhappy. At over 300lbs, I was unable to live the active, outdoor lifestyle I desperately wanted. Then, a friend introduced me to hemp foods. With omegas, digestible proteins, vitamins, minerals and fiber, hemp replenished much of what my body was missing. Before long, I had enough natural energy to climb a mountain…and a message to spread once I got there.
Today, we’re proud to bring you the highest quality hemp food products available. Hemp is sustainable and it’s packed with goodness. Try hemp, it could change your life!
