What’s with this craze about Hemp Seeds? Are they similar to Chia Seeds? Are they different? Do I need to buy them? Well, let’s answer most of your questions in the following sentences. Hemp Seeds do have some benefits that are similar to Chia Seeds, but they also have their own unique benefits. Hemp Seeds are high in fibre and omegas, anti-inflammatory (always a good thing) and high in protein. They help with improving your brain and immune function and can help with weight loss. “How do I cook with Hemp Seeds?” you ask. Well, in a variety of different ways. You truly can incorporate them for breakfast, lunch and dinner without even realizing it. Check out these simple yet delicious recipes to get your creative hemp seed juices flowing!

1. Radish Avocado Toast

This is hard to believe, but I actually just discovered the magic of avo-toast this morning. I think the Pink Himalayan Salt is what took it to the next level. Tomorrow, I’ll be sprinkling on some chia and hemp seeds for extra nutritional value.
