Note: I was given a 2 oz bag of Hemp Hearts through a Sweat Pink campaign in exchange for reviewing them. No other compensation was received, and all opinions are my own.
I like trying new food, especially if it’s healthy, so I was excited when Sweat Pink offered the opportunity to try Manitoba Harvest’s Hemp Hearts. I had seen them at Costco before but wasn’t sure if I would use the big bag that Costco sells, especially since I had not tried them.
Here’s a pic of the front and back of the sample I received.
Here’s the back of the package the sample came in, which has great info:
Hemp Hearts are packed with nutrition. Each 30g Serving has 10g of plant based protein and 10g of Omega 3 & 6. They have less carbs and more protein and omegas than the same serving of chia or flax. Also, they are raw, vegan-friendly and Non-GMO.
The first time I tried them, I sprinkled them on my Greek yogurt. It tasted pretty good! Hemp Hearts taste nutty and added a great flavor to my yogurt!
Besides adding Hemp Hearts to my yogurt, I’ve also added them to my Shakeology shakes which I drink each day. I think Hemp Hearts are a great addition to all different kinds of food to make them healthier. You can add them to salad, cereal & yogurt, and smoothies. They taste fine right from the bag too! I know I’ll be buying more once my sample runs out.
You can check out Manitoba Harvest’s Hemp Hearts on their website. If you would like to try them, Sweat Pink and Manitoba Harvest are offering 20% off everything at ManitobaHarvest.com with code HHSweatPink14, which expires November 30, 2014.
