Breaking Down the Hemp Crop ~ Part 3 ~ Seed

Hemp Seed Smoothie

How do you like your hemp seeds: whole, shelled, pressed, or powdered?  

With hemp being such a versatile and useful crop, it’s no surprise that there are many different ways to consume the seed.  Whether you are looking to boost your protein or decrease inflammation, there is a solution to be found by adding a serving or two of hemp to your daily diet.

Shelled Hemp Seeds

Perhaps the most common way to eat this omega rich food, shelled hemp seeds are great for cereal, salads, smoothies, just to name a few.  

If you are looking for an excellent protein source that’s tasty and diverse, look no further.  Not only do they taste delicious, with a light, nutty flavour, hemp seeds are also used to heal common day health issues such as high cholesterol and depression.

Whole Hemp Seeds

You can eat these on their own as a crunchy snack or add them to your salads and stir fries.  Word of caution: whole hemp seeds love to get stuck in your teeth, so be sure to check the mirror after you eat!

In consuming  whole hemp seeds, you get the extra benefit of an insoluble fibre not often found in our everyday diet.

Hemp Oil

Using a press process, hemp seeds are carefully converted into hemp oil to create a product excellent for dressings and dips.  

The oil extraction method also allows for the production of hemp oil capsules which are commonly used to treat arthritis, blood pressure, and mental health the natural way.  

Since hemp is rich in omega, you will likely notice improvement to your immune system, digestive system, and hair health.  Introduce capsules into your daily vitamin regimen, and reap the many rewards.

Hemp Protein

Here’s a great way to get a plentiful source of protein in a versatile powder.  This vegan friendly option offers high levels of fibre and omegas, much like when you eat the seeds or consume the oil.  

While you might typically use the hemp protein powders in your smoothie, we recommend you try this one in your baking too.  

Healthy Option

No matter which way you choose to eat this superfood, you’ll quickly enjoy the benefits.  Hemp is a crop that dates back thousands of years. Today, it’s making a comeback offering farmers an excellent crop option while providing healthy eaters a delicious addition to any meal of their day.

    Add oil, flax "egg", vanilla, and almond milk into your flour mixture. Blend well. Stir in mashed bananas.
  4. Wet your hands, and then flick your fingers above the pan to test. If it's heated and ready for batter, the water will sizzle and evaporate quickly.
  5. Pour batter onto pan, a spoon full per pancake. Cook approx. 3 mins per side, being careful not to burn. This picture shows when they're ready to flip. Since they cook a little more like banana bread than a pancake, if you wait for bubbles to pop, they will be a bit overcooked.
