Navitas Naturals introduced me to Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds and included a recipe for Hemp Hummus. Hemp has been around for thousands of years and it is used for textiles, papers and more. Now it is a superfood. The Hemp Seeds from Navitas Naturals come from premium growers in Central Canada.
Hemp seeds provide one of the highest amounts of protein from a plant source. These hemp seeds contain essential amino acids,omega-3's and omega-6's. The serving size of 1 1/2 tablespoons provides 5 grams of protein with only 80 calories.
I found them pretty tasty. I sprinkle the hemp seeds on salads for a nutty flavor. I like the lightness of the flavor. It tastes a lot like sunflower seeds! Because the flavor is lighter you can add the seeds into smoothies, toss in breakfast cereals, or mix in yogurts for added protein without overpowering the flavors. Use the hemp seeds in recipes like Hemp Hummus. That sounds delicious.
