Hemp is such a divinely nourishing food and is something we all can benefit from eating more of. The ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fats is perfectly balanced in hemp seeds – whereas many nuts and seeds are omega 6 and 9 dominant. Omega 3’s in particular are vital for the flexibility of our cell membranes – specifically in our brains. A flexible cell wall means all of those delicious nutrients can move to areas of the cell where they are needed, and waste can be transported away.
Hemp Pesto Pasta
Kelp noodles (rinsed and chopped)
This dish shows off hemp seeds and quinoa -- two sources of complete protein. They're both delicious, especially when paired with fresh herbs and a squeeze of lemon. Feel free to substitute the basil for dill, oregano, or another herb of choice; no matter what, they result will be a tasty, satisfying, and simple meatless meal!
