Healthy Hemp Hearts Recipes To Try! 

 

I’m really loving these healthy recipe round up posts and by the looks of it (and the traffic!) it seems many of you are too! In fact my most popular round up to date was the 17 Easy Plant-Based Breakfast Recipes which still gets tons of love every day. Today I’m sharing 13+ Healthy Hemp Heart Recipes you’ve got to make because hemp hearts are delicious, so good for you, and incredibly easy to add into so many kinds of recipes. I often add hemp seeds to my toddlers coconut yogurt, sprinkle on top of jam toast, or add it to pasta sauce just to up the nutritional value of her food without her even knowing. Hemp hearts are really subtle in flavour and go wonderfully in everything from smoothies, to salads, to pesto!

What Are Hemp Hearts?

 

Hemp hearts, also known as hemp seeds, are the seeds of the hemp plant. While hemp is sometimes associated with marijuana and while they come from the same species of plant the seeds of the hemp plant do not contain any psychoactive properties…you aren’t going to get high eating hemp hearts!! The “hearts” or seeds of the hemp plant are incredibly nutritious and contain healthy fats, plant proteins, fibre, and many other nutrients including calcium, magnesium, and iron. 

What Are the Health Benefits of Hemp Hearts?

 

Because of the nutritional profile of hemp hearts being high in protein, essential fatty acids, minerals, and fibre they benefit the body in many ways. They have shown to help reduce the risk of heart disease, can improve skin, hair, and nail health, help to stabilize blood sugar levels, and can help boost digestion! These are just some of the evidence based health benefits
