Hemp as Food

The Hemp Seeds have very many uses but what we are concentrating here is a number of ways to consume these seeds in a pleasurable and tasty way. You can make perfectly balanced snacks and foods to eat on the go. You can turn any simple meal into a special one by adding these simple ingredients.

Salads and Pitas can be made into a more nutritious meal . Any dessert or appetizer by adding on a few tablespoons of Hemp Seeds. These are great in Salads of any type. I enjoy a bit of crunchiness in my simple salad and these can be added to or take the place of sunflower or pumpkins seeds that I enjoy.
