Hemp or Cannabis Sativa L is part of the Cannabaceae family, however it is of the non-drug variety; it is not the same as the drug variety marijuana (enjoying hemp is not going to get you high).
It is, however going to provide you with some great benefits including:
A complete protein source
It is easily digested
A perfect ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids
Manitoba Harvest (www.manitobaharvest.com) has a great selection of hemp products that you can start incorporating into your routine. Hemp hearts can be added to salads, cereals and yogurt; there are also hemp heart toppers, hemp heart bites, toasted hemp seeds, hemp oil and hemp protein powders.
Some of my favourite ways to incorporate hemp into my routine is by sprinkling hemp hearts on my salads or yogurt and by using hemp oil when making salad dressings.
Try adding some hemp to your meal planning for all the nutritional goodness it has to offer.
