Notes

Hemp seeds are super nutritious and rich in healthy fats, protein and various minerals. This superfood improves digestion, balances hormones and improves metabolism. It is often referred to as the “Perfect protein” not only containing all 20 amino acids, but also each of the 9 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce. A single tablespoon of hemp seeds contains about 5g of protein! The benefits of the hemp seed are numerous and it is definitely worth stocking in your pantry to sprinkle a tablespoon into smoothies, on top of breakfasts and even salads.
