Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts Review and Giveaway!

The generous people at Manitoba Harvest sent me a bag of their Hemp Hearts to review!

First of all, here is some information from Mike.

Mike's Story

I started Manitoba Harvest with my friends Martin and Alex because hemp foods did wonders for me, and I wanted to share them with the world. Honestly, these nutty little nutrient-packed seeds helped change my life.

In 1995, I was unhealthy and unhappy. At over 300lbs, I was unable to live the active, outdoor lifestyle I desperately wanted. Then, a friend introduced me to hemp foods. With omegas, digestible proteins, vitamins, minerals and fiber, hemp replenished much of what my body was missing. Before long, I had enough natural energy to climb a mountain…and a message to spread once I got there.

Today, we’re proud to bring you the highest quality hemp food products available. Hemp is sustainable and it’s packed with goodness. Try hemp, it could change your life!

Here's some info on the hemp hearts:
  • Hemp Hearts pack a powerful punch of protein and omegas. Per 30g serving Hemp Hearts contain 10g of easy to digest protein, 10g of omegas – and many more minerals.
  • Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts are made in a hemp-dedicated facility by dehulling non-GMO seeds. Once shelled, Hemp Hearts are immediately packaged to seal in the freshness.
  • Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts are all-natural and contain NO additives, fillers or preservatives.
These have a very nice, nutty flavor. Almost 'buttery' in a way too!
You can sprinkle them on salad, cereal, yogurt, and just about everything!
I sprinkled them on my breakfast fruit/yogurt parfait,
 On my Cushaw soup,

and on my salad- which I forgot to take a picture of. I also had some right out of the bag!
But you can really put them on just about anything!! They add texture and flavor to sweet or not so sweet dishes!
