Hemp Seeds: My Current Health Food Obsession

Whether you are looking for a way to boost the omegas in your diet, or just trying to impress your coworkers in the office break room, look no further! For as little as $5.49 (Trader Joes 8 oz package) you can conveniently increase the nutrition in your snacks and meals. 3 tablespoons of raw, shelled hemp seeds packs in 10 grams of protein, 180 calories and only 2 grams of carbs-making this a diabetic friendly option! The subtle nutty flavor complements almost every pairing.......and taste a whole lot better than flax!

-Sprinkle 2 tbsps into 8 ounces of unsweetened almond milk and 1/2 cup of fruit for the ultimate smoothie

-Mix in your favorite low sugar cereal or oatmeal. The fiber and protein should help keep full during the morning hustle.

- Ditch the meat and top upon a heaping green salad with some homemade citrus vinaigrette for a power lunch that will keep you satisfied, but not bloated, for hours.

-Looking for a protein punch in the afternoon? I prefer a generous spoonful mixed in with some low sugar yogurt and berries. The perfect mid-day pick-me-up!

Just be sure to store in the fridge after opening to preserve the massive amount of nutrients!
