Hemp Hearts Review and Giveaway

I love supporting local businesses, so this is an amazing opportunity for me to review a product from my own community

The Basics

What are Hemp Hearts?
Hemp hearts are shelled hemp seeds. Hemp seeds are packed with many health benefits, and the testimonials are amazing! I have added hemp Hearts to my salads, stir fries, and yogurt.

How to Use Hemp Hearts:
  • Sprinkle them on your oatmeal or mix them into your cereal at breakfast.
  • Mix them in with your fruit salad or in your yogurt at breakfast.
  • If you have a protein shake as your morning meal, blend in with your shake. 
  • Blend them in with your Hemp Oil to make a nice tasty salad dressing.
  • Eat them straight from the spoon.
  • Spread them over your morning toast.
  • Sprinkle them into your salad.
  • Incorporate them into your home baking. 
  • Add them in your home-made granola.
  • Eat them by the spoonful 

The first way I tried my Hemp Hearts was on my morning yogurt. They added a pleasant crunch, and I noticed I was less hungry at lunch! I have tried to include Hemp Hearts into my daily diet for 2 weeks now, and have noticed a raise in my energy levels. My husband and children have even requested to have them added to their salads too.

Why You will Love It: 

  • Health benefits associated with hemp hearts include reduced risk for heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Hemp hearts may also improve skin problems, arthritis symptoms and mood disorders.

Hemp is a good source of iron, is a complete protein, and provides the essential fatty acids. Also, unlike other vegetable proteins, the hemp protein is not a source of carbohydrates.
