Hemp Hearts Review and Giveaway

**I received these Hemp Hearts from Manitoba Harvest through my role as a Sweat Pink Ambassador**

I had actually never heard of Hemp Hearts and I must admit that my husband freaked out a little bit thinking that they were a form of marijuana! After much research, rest assured, they are not from the same type of cannabis plant that keeps Colorado’s economy thriving (sorry if I offended anyone), they are from another species and contain no THC and will not cause you to fail a drug test. Whew!

Hemp hearts are a great source of protein and omegas, packing 10 grams of each per 30 gram serving! They are also lower in carbohydrate than both flax and chia. They have a slightly nutty taste and are excellent on top of salad. I also plan to experiment with them in a pesto sauce as I think they will be great in place of the pine nuts. I’ll keep you posted on that! They are also extremely easy to use. You just sprinkle them in or on whatever it is you desire to try them with.

The Manitoba Harvest website is also a great resource for recipes using Hemp products.
