Review: Manitoba Hemp Hearts

Hemp hearts envelopeGetting protein in my diet is a struggle.   Don’t get me wrong; I love my meat.  But I don’t eat a lot of it and I am not a huge fan of meat alternatives.  So when I came across the opportunity to try Manitoba Hemp Hearts, I jumped at it.

There are a few things that pulled me towards Hemp Hearts.  First, it is a Canadian product.  The hemp seeds are grown in Canada and products are manufactured in a hemp-only facility in Manitoba.    Before I even tried them, I knew that I was heading into a  romance between Hemp Hearts and this former-Manitoba girl.   I also love that they are packed with protein: 10 grams of protein and another 10 grams of omegas in a 30 gram serving.  Lastly, it’s an easy protein fix.  There are lots of recipes that use Hemp Hearts that I can try but, for me, nutrition has to be easy.  hemp hearts with eggsI love that I can just open the bag and sprinkle them on my salads, pasta (my favorite way to eat these) and even hard boiled eggs.  I wish that I had found these last winter when my running accident meant that I had to spend a month living off smoothies.  Hemp Hearts add a delicious sesame taste to my food.  Yum!  Check out their website for other great nutrition ideas.

Other great things about Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts is they are vegan-friendly and they are non-GMO certified.

Often, when I come across great looking products on the web, I end up being disappointed because they are hard to find in stores.  This is not the case with Manitoba Harvest; there are oodles of local stores which carry Hemp Hearts and other yummy hemp products.  I know that I’ll be heading out soon to pick up some of their Hemp Heart Bites for my mid-afternoon snack at school or Hemp Heart Bars for my son with the teenage bottomless pit.   Hemp Hearts package
