In honor of Valentine’s Day, let's talk about Hemp Hearts.  See what I did there?  

Hemp Hearts are the edible insides of hemp seeds.  They pack a serious nutritional punch, they are really tasty, and they are, in fact, good for your heart.  

Here are some of the reasons why I love Hemp Hearts this Valentine’s Day (and every other day too):

Hemp Hearts are a complete protein, which is a great option for vegetarians, vegans, and meat eaters alike.  They have 10g of protein per serving, so they are a great way to give any meal a protein boost.

They are full of healthy omega 3 fatty acids which help fight inflammation and promote heart health.

Packed with vitamins and minerals like iron, B vitamins, manganese and magnesium, Hemp Hearts are a nutritional powerhouse within a teeny tiny little seed.

They are so easy to add to meals and snacks like smoothies, granola, and trail mix, they can be treated just like a nut and blended into a creamy pesto, and they offer a nutty flavor when sprinkled over salads, yogurt, or avocado toast.  The possibilities really are endless.  

Check out these recipes using Hemp Hearts and give them a try this Valentine's Day!
