Today we are talking about hemp hearts! I recently started incorporating these as a substitution for other nuts and seeds do the recommendations in my Viome assessment. Hemp hearts contain all 9 essential amino acids, they don’t contain oxalates or phytates (as most nuts and seeds do) and they contain both omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. They’re a rich source of minerals and they have a great nutty flavor!

Today we’ll talk about their omega profile and what makes it unique as well as considerations for buying hemp seeds and different ways to incorporate them.
