Why Hemp Hearts Should be in YOUR Recipes! {Manitoba Hearts Review}

If you’ve followed me on Instagram or ever come across one of my salad pictures, you may have noticed they always contain the same go-to toppings.  The first is toasted flax seeds and the second is Hemp Hearts.  I just don’t make a salad without them!

Salad Toppings: Manitoba Hemp Hearts

I tried Hemp Hearts on a whim about six months ago.  I had some money to spend at the Kiwi Store online and decided to give Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts a whirl.  Such a great decision!

They are delicious and nutty and I’m having so much fun experimenting with them.  My go-to is salads, but I’ve also made a couple other treats with them.

I love the nutty bit of crunch they added to my Chocolate Caramel Protein Bites.

I also had too much fun making a snack to satisfy my sweet tooth with dates, a tiny bit of peanut butter, half a banana slice and as many hemp hearts as I could get to stick!  Yum!

Now, my husband has been working 7 days a week lately, which means this Momma has also been working 7 days a week (but, really, what’s the difference…), or you would be seeing all sorts of help heart concoctions!

Wednesday night our meal plan is for a Tomato Basil Soup from Frontier Soups and I can’t wait to add some hemp hearts to that – delicious! Also, I was just kicking myself for not taking the time to try some hemp heart chicken nuggets the other night while I was cooking up more than two chickens!

Luckily, while cruising the Manitoba Harvest website I found that I am not the first genius to come up with these ideas and you can find some great recipes for soups, entrees, and more!

So, besides the facts that they taste great, why should YOU be adding them to your own recipes???
