WHAT’S THE HYPE WITH HEMP?

This naturally sourced, plant based protein, is packed full of a variety of nutrients, including being rich in amino acids. In fact, hemp is actually a COMPLETE protein, meaning that it contains all nine of the essential amino acids.

Why this is important is that essential amino acids are just that, essential to the body. The difference with the essential amino acids is that they are not able to be produced by our body, therefore we need to find it in our food sources. Making hemp a fantastic source to draw from!

MORE ABOUT HEMP

Whilst hemp is derived from the same cannabis species, there can be no worries about these nutritious little gems (hemp hearts), containing any of the psychoactive ingredients that you would find in marijuana as it does not contain any of the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). So nothing to worry about here!

I have been trying @harvestohand hemp protein and hemp hearts, and I am excited to share with you 3 of my favourite snacks that I add these hemp hearts to, to boost their protein intake (helping not only recovery, repair and growth, but stabilising my blood sugar levels making my hormones happier).

SNACK RECIPES

Snack 1: Celery sticks with almond butter + hemp hearts
Ingrediets: 3 - 4 celery sticks + 2 tbsp. almond butter + 2 tbsp. hemp hearts
Instructions: Spread the almond butter inside the celery sticks and sprinkle the hemp hearts on the top, yielding about 15 - 16g of protein per serve.

Snack 2: Coconut yoghurt + berries + hemp hearts
Ingredients: ⅓ cup coconut yoghurt + ½ cup berries of choice + 2 tbsp. hemp hearts
Instructions: Sprinkle the berries and hemp hearts over the yoghurt and enjoy, yielding about 8 - 9g of protein per serve.

Snack 3: Apple + cashew butter + hemp hearts
Ingredients: 1 apple + 1 tbsp. cashew butter + 1 tbsp. hemp hearts

You can also add these to the top of your porridge, salads or in a chia pudding for an extra protein boost!
