Hemp seeds can be added to a variety of food items that you eat regularly as a daily supplement. Add to hot and cold cereals, yogurts, blend into smoothies, nut butters, dips and sauces or sprinkle on salads, soups, pasta or quinoa. You can even add them to your baking or use them to make non-dairy hemp milk. Use a little creativity and the options are endless, I am always finding new ways to incorporate them into my diet, like this morning when I made a Coconut Lime "Custard" and in they went! Also, because hemp seeds do not need to be ground, they make a perfect portable option for added nutrition on the go! Aim to get 2-5 tablespoon servings per day.
Unopened packages of hemp hearts are best stored, airtight, out of direct sunlight and in a cool place. Once opened it's best to keep them refrigerated in an airtight container. I love using mason jars for this purpose!
