My Breakfast is better... Hemp Hearts

I've talked before about how I get in such food ruts.

Same food over & over... day in, day out.

So I was excited when I got something in the mail to try... I got even more excited when I found it was food.

This girl will always be excited when food comes to her door.

Hemp Hearts

I wasn't even sure what to do with this stuff at first because I'm such a non-kitchen person. 

I mean some people can see this &immediately think of 12 recipes to create.  I'm like, what can I sprinkle it on...

& I actually did just that. 

The front of the package even tells me what to do.  Salads & yogurt are always on my go-to foods so I thought this would be a great way to try it.

I have been using my bag to sprinkle on top of my greek yogurt with honey.  Let me tell you, with Greek Yogurt & this?  I think I've got my protein covered for the day, which is exactly what I need being a vegetarian.  I really do have a hard time getting in enough protein in a day & this stuff really helps. 

I was curious to see what the other health benefits were from this products

Hemp hearts like we mentioned are a complete protein.
... it also contains essential fatty acids omega 6 & omega 3
... it's also a great source of soluble & insoluble fiber.
... its packed with vitamins like A, B1, B2, D & E as well as the minerals calcium & iron

Its said that hemp hearts are also great at curbing hunger. I feel like greek yogurt fills me up for awhile anyways, so this was just an added benefit.

If you want to give it a try, you can check out Manitoba Harvest & use a 20% off code.  Who doesn't love a 20% off code?  (Code: HHSweatPink14) ... hurry though, the discount expires November 30th.

Check out their site too because they are more genius then I am & actually have recipes as well as all sorts of hemp products.

Going into the holidays, who doesn't need more energy & a fuller belly & some extra boosts of health?  I'll definitely have to keep this a stable in my diet...

Even Chuck Norris gives it a thumbs up

    The USA has a $500 million + / year HEMP industry. Here is a $500 million dollar a year question: Why does Forty-fourth President Barack Obama prohibit US farmers from growing HEMP when First President George Washington, who also GREW HEMP, declared ‘Make the most of the Indian HEMP seed and sow it everywhere!’ ?
    The President takes an oath to faithfully execute the laws of the United States. As important, if not more important, that oath also specifies that they uphold the Constitution. They can refuse to enforce a law if they believe it is unconstitutional since the Constitution, as the supreme law of the land, takes precedence over acts of Congress. Hence, Congress is under a duty not to pass unconstitutional laws, the President is under a duty not to enforce unconstitutional laws, and the courts are under a duty to strike down unconstitutional laws.’ – excerpt from July 11/12 article – Moreover, Prohibition of HEMP is a crime against humanity. HEMP seed is the most complete food source in the world. – Public Knowledge – See Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. ‘The 9th Amendment to the US Constitution seems to provide firm legal ground for us to eat by our best understandings, asserting “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” Thomas Jefferson certainly advised us to claim and exercise the right of food choice when he wrote, “If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.”’ – excerpt from | The US Constitution takes a different position – The U.S. government also OWNS cannabis cures U.S. patent # 6630507 which contradicts a Schedule 1 controlled substance; KannaLife has been granted exclusive licensing on this patent. The first USA flag was made from hemp by Betsy Ross. got hemp?™ FOLLOW US @DrinkMaryJanes in Canada eh and @HempVodka in USA!
