Dairy free hemp milk? Isn’t this girl a Christian? Or, better yet, “Isn’t hemp marijuana?” You’d be surprised at the comments I get. Let me clear somethings up. Hemp does not cause you to become euphoric (which, why is that so bad?) and it doesn’t skew your thought process.
Now, hemp hasn’t always had a bad rep. In fact, it used to be viewed as a highly effective fuel for diesel engines. Once the petroleum, charcoal and other oil-related industries saw the potential for hemp they started a campaign associating it with marijuana. It’s crazy how natural things from earth can be targeted as “bad” when they are cleaner for the environment and our bodies.
Hemp seeds are a small off-white seed with a green line running through them. They have a nutty flavor and add a delicious pizazz to any simple meal. These super seeds are 30% protein and 30% fat and they include all nine essential amino acids. This is why they can be called a complete protein.
If you are ever experiencing constipation or hard stools, have some hemp seeds because they are high in fiber and will get things moving. Now, here are a few important nutrients these seeds contain: iron, vitamin E, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc. Even better, they are low in carbs which makes them perfect for diabetics, cancer clients, keto friends and the sugar-conscious.
What you’ll need
Gogi powder (optional to make it pink)
High speed blender
How to Use Hemp
Alright, now we’re talking. Hemp seeds are extremely versatile and you can use them in all sorts of dishes. Smoothies, salads, crackers, nut milks and cereal are just a few. The fact that they are such mild seeds means that you can add them to dishes without the fear of them taking over.
When they are dry, they hold a firm texture that adds a nice bold texture to your dish. Submerse them in liquid and they’ll soften up and can even become creamy. Remember, when you purchase hemp seed products, look for the ones that are hulled without steam and then cold-pressed. These are my favorite.
