Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts: Product Review & GIVEAWAY!

Posted Jun 04 2012 12:00am
I am VERY excited to announce that I am hosting my very first GIVEAWAY! The kind people over at Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods & Oils  sent me a bag of their Hemp Hearts to try out! I have used their oils before so I was familiar with the company, but had never tried their hemp hearts.

Manitoba Harvest is a Canadian based company that was founded in 1998. The company started small, but the focus clear; manufacture the highest quality hemp food products while educating people on the nutritional benefits of hemp foods. Their Vision Statement:  To be the global leader in hemp food products, promoting health and wellness, and fostering positive change for community and the environment.

Now some more info on their AMAZING PRODUCTS!

Hemp hearts are raw, shelled hemp seeds. "These tiny Hemp Hearts™ pack a powerful punch of protein, omegas and fiber. Not only are Hemp Hearts easy to incorporate into any meal, they taste delicious too! Did you know Dr. Oz even refers to Hemp Hearts as ‘Brain Food’?" (source) These hemp hearts are also free of additives and preservatives and are vegan friendly!


Why Should You Include Hemp Foods in Your Diet?

1. Protein: Hemp protein is a complete vegetarian protein. The protein found in hemp seed has higher levels of protein versus nuts, other seeds, dairy products.

2. Omegas: Hemp foods provide essential fatty acids (omega-6 and omega 3)

3. Hemp foods contain fiber, iron, and other vitamins and minerals.

5. Hemp foods are delicious and easy to digest and easy to incorporate into your daily diet!


Ways That You Can Incorporate Hemp into Your Daily Diet

Not sure how you can incorporate hemp hearts into your daily diet? Here are a few ways!

- Sprinkle hemp hearts on your yogurt or cereal in the morning
- Sprinkle hemp hearts on your salad
- instead of using bread crumbs, I use hemp hearts to "bread" chicken or fish... yummy!
- use hemp oil when making homemade salad dressing
- use hemp protein powder to make your smoothies

Other Great Products from Manitoba Harvest
I found a great dessert recipe online for Raspberry Chocolate Hemp Squares on Joyous Health's blog . I tried them out this weekend and they were GREAT! Not only do these little treats curb my cravings for sweets, but they are also jam packed with good fats and proteins! I love finding guilt free recipes like this.

I also made some yummy homemade chicken fingers and used the hemp hearts to bread my chicken! They turned out great as well.

The Raspberry Chocolate Hemp Squares turned out great!


Needless to say, there are MANY health benefits to including Manitoba Harvest Hemp Products into your diet but...... there is another reason why I REALLY like this company and its products. The Manitoba Harvest company really focuses on being environmentally friendly, and I really like their strong sense of social responsibility.

Manitoba Harvest recently partnered with Renewable Choice to support the development of wind power projects and to take responsibility for their environmental impact. According to  Manitoba Harvest "by taking steps to conserve the electricity we use and reduce our environmental  impact by purchasing RECS, (renewable energy credits)  our commitment has an impact similar to planting  1,009 mature tree or not driving 272,449 miles in an average car. " Another interesting fact is that Manitoba Harvest’s packaging is made from recyclable and/or reusable materials and marketing materials and business correspondence is printed on recycled paper!

The hemp hearts sent to me by the awesome people at Manitoba Harvest!
