Why eat hemp?

If you're wondering why we're sharing these tasty hemp recipes, it comes down to the powerhouse of nutrients that came along with these humble seeds. In particular, the omega fatty acids, vitamins and minerals blow a number of their counterparts out of the water for concentration. You'll find a good dose of protein in hemp, which we're always prioritising here at I Quit Sugar, and that's because it helps balance blood sugars and reduce sugar cravings, plus, hemp is one of the few plant-based complete protein sources, meaning it contains all 9 essential amino acids. with a 30-gram serving of hemp seeds containing around 9.5 grams of protein. The omega fatty acids are another draw for hemp seeds and hemp seed oil, and these seeds are known to have a good omega 3 to 6 ratio, meaning we absorb it better. From reducing the risk for brain degeneration to improving gut health, omega 3 is important for our whole body. Whether you sprinkle your seeds over your soup or add it to a smoothie, hemp is so versatile and worth having in the pantry.

Tried Aussie hemp and found it a little bitter? Another way to enjoy hemp is by trying French hemp. Many people who've tried Australian hemp found it can be a bit overpowering, turning them off of this nutritional powerhouse. But if this has been your experience, there's another way to reap the benefits of this seed! We love French hemp because it's grown and processed to have a lighter, creamier taste, making it ideal for desserts and smoothies. You can find a range of French hemp products over at Grass Roots, their French Hemp 60 Protein has an impressive protein content that far exceeds that of Aussie hemp, containing a minimum of 60% protein per serve. For more information on the benefits of French hemp, take a look HERE.
