Remember back when the epitomical sign of friendship was exchanging beaded macramé hemp bracelets? Good times. While you’re reliving those happy memories, take a moment, if you will, to consider our GOOD hemp seeds. The edible part of the hemp plant – a non-psychoactive variety of (ahemCannabis sativa – resembles sesame seeds, though the seeds are rounder, softer, and greenish in color. Their flavor is often compared to that of pine nuts, but with more subtlety and a hint of sweetness. Hemp seeds have made a number of recent superfood lists, and it’s no wonder. Rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, they offer a complete protein source that contains all nine essential amino acids.

1 cup shelled hemp seeds

    Oats are acidizing to the body so not a great choice for a healthful breakfast.
    Alternative 1: Sprouted wheat grain. Soak for 12hrs, rinse and drain, repeat 2-3 times a day, after 36-48hrs the grains will sprout, softening the texture and allowing them to be eaten raw.
    Alternative 2: Buckwheat groats. Soaked for 1/2 hour to activate the enzymes then rinse and eat raw.

    Pumpkin seeds will benefit from soaking for an hour to activate the enzymes. As above soak, rinse and drain before eating raw.
    Sprouted sunflower seeds and soaked almonds would be other great additions to this muesli. Topped with Hemp milk of course.
