Hemp Hearts Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I received this product for free through my affiliation with Fit Approach as a Sweat Pink Ambassador in exchange for a blog review.  I received no other compensation.  All opinions are my own.

As part of my ongoing effort to eat as healthy as possible, I’m always looking for nutritious, but tasty, ingredients to use in order to keep my taste buds pleased, and thus, having me reach for healthy foods instead of non healthy alternatives.  So when I heard about the opportunity to try out Hemp Hearts, I immediately jumped at the opportunity.

These nutty seeds are packed with protein and Omega 3s, and are similar in taste to sunflower seeds and pine nuts.  Each 30 gram serving contains 10 grams of plant based protein and 10 grams of Omegas, making them a great protein option for people that follow a variety of diets.

I found them extremely easy to add to foods that I already eat.  They’re the perfect addition to one of my favorite snacks: Greek yogurt and berries.  Instead of putting my usual granola on top, I substituted that for a handful of Hemp Hearts.

Yesterday I also added some to my morning Shakeology shake.  I enjoyed mixing up my morning routine by adding a bit of a nutty flavor to my usual shake.  At dinner, I also topped my salad with a handful of them.

Hemp Hearts can easily be added to a variety of dishes: salads, cereal, yogurt, vegetables, the possibilities are endless.  Or they can be eaten straight out of the bag.
