Hemp Hearts

My new found love and secret I'm going to share with you Hemp Hearts! These are raw shelled hemp seeds and contain many health benefits. They are virtually tasteless and can be sprinkled on nearly everything. 3 Tablespoons of these power seeds contain 10grams if protein! Amazing! They are great in oatmeal, yogurt, mixed in a bowl of fruit, on whole grain/bran cereal. They are great in green smoothies or protein shakes. One of the most important tips for losing weight is lots of protein! It's a common myth that most women think eating a lot of protein will make them get "big". Not True! Protein helps build lean muscle which will help you look thinner and more toned. You should know now by the last post that muscle helps you burn fat continuously throughout the day. These Hemp Hearts are such a quick easy way to get extra protein, they can be found at your local vitamin shop or health food store in the refrigerated section.
Did you know that these little seeds can also be made into hemp milk! It's actually quite easy, throw them in a juicer or blend them in a blender using a strainer after to drain the milk into a container. Great for all those people on non dairy diets.
