My Truths #67 (hemp hearts)

by Stephanie

Hemp hearts are a great non-animal source of protein. Manitoba Hemp Harvest makes a great quality product that is sold at Costco in my area. Hemp hearts are soft with a delicious nutty taste. They are an excellent source of protein, omega 3 and omega 6. They are higher in omega 6 and ideally you should aim for a 1:1 ratio overall so keep that in mind.

This is my favourite way to enjoy them as a snack or dessert: In a dessert size bowl measure 3 Tbsp hemp hearts, 3 Tbsp organic shredded coconut, ½ tsp of organic true cinnamon (see My Truth #66). Combine and douse with heavy cream to completely soak. Enjoy!
