Hemp seeds, although they've gained popularity in recent years, they are still much over looked and under valued. They are so adaptable and usable in pretty much anything. Loaded with Protein, good fats (yes, good fats) Omega 3, Vit E, zinc, magnesium and other important minerals. 

For those that like a protein top up for building muscle did you know there's 5g of protein per single tablespoon of hemp seeds, not bad going. So ditch the synthetic protein powders and get yourself a real nutritional powerhouse with all the Protein you need and actually very good for you.

They taste great with a real nutty, almost sweet textured taste, not unlike Chia seeds or flax. Like Chia seeds, Hemp seeds are very small but pack a mighty punch!

So then, how do you use these little seeds?

1. Bars and balls
When making homemade protein bars, energy balls or such like, throw hemp seeds in with them. They compliment most foods and can be baked too. So chuck them in cakes, bakes and cookies, they'll add texture and a slight crunch as well as a nutritional profile that is hard to beat. Also most people won't even notice you're sneaking them some nutrition, so they are great for getting good food past the kids in the guise of 'treats' or 'sweets'.
