Hemp seeds and hemp protein are two of the best forms of protein we have available to us in such a small serving. They’re not just full of all the essential amino acids, but also bring omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, magnesium, and iron to the table as well. Their green hue denotes their natural chlorophyll content and their mild, yet nutty taste is something most anyone would enjoy. The taste of hemp is also pretty handy when it comes to creating recipes.

For one, you can take this versatile seed and use it in both creamy, crunchy, sweet, or savory dishes. And while most people use it in smoothies and raw desserts, hemp seeds and hemp protein have more going for them than those two types of dishes alone.
 
Do yourself a favor – pick up a bag of hemp seeds this week (or try some hemp protein powder). You can find them at any health food store or online. Choose organic, non-GMO, and do your best to buy the plain, unsweetened kind, versus those flavored that have added sugars. Not only is hemp inexpensive per serving, but it’s also help keep you full and makes you feel all around great!
 
If you don’t tolerate dairy, nuts, and grains, you can easily use hemp to replace all of those foods. Try these out:  http://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-food/creative-ways-to-use-hemp-seeds-to-replace-dairy-and-more/
