I don't know about you, but I am always on the lookout for a tasty, filling, convenient and most importantly, HEALTHY snack food. This sounds much easier than it actually is, especially if you have kids. Most healthy snacks require some kind of preparation, and sometimes my hunger comes over me like a tidal wave causing me to grab the quickest thing I can find, which typically is NOT healthy whatsoever. As for the kids, snacks these days are just downright despicable! Check the ingredients sometime and then contemplate whether you really want your children ingesting that nonsense. If you do, no judgment, but I know I don't so I love when I find something that the whole house loves, and I don't need to feel one ounce of guilt about providing. Take for example, the SuperHemp Raw Organic Shelled Hemp Seeds.
These are a hit with the kids because they taste just like sunflower seeds, but they are even smaller. Their size and mild taste make them versatile enough to eat on their own, or add them to just about anything. I throw some on a salad, my morning cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, into baking mixes (muffins), you can really add them to anything. Upon dong some research I found that it is best to eat the Shelled Hemp Seeds early in the day, and preferably with roughage. When taken with processed foods it can sometimes result in watery stools due to how quickly the hemp seeds move through your intestinal tract versus processed foods which take longer. The starches liquefy and are carried through with the hem seeds at a quicker rate. I never saw a suggestion for serving on the bag either, but found that it is recommended not to exceed 4-5 tablespoons per day. They are best stored in the fridge or freezer to maintain freshness.
Aside from all of the ways you can use the Super Hemp Raw Organic Shelled Hemp Seeds, what is even more astounding is all of the health benefits that they provide. First and foremost, they are super high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids. This is perfect for lowering cholesterol, keeping your blood pressure in check, and for feeding your brain. They are also a great appetite suppressant. If you have trouble with getting hungry in between meals or snacks, it is effortless to add these to the food you are eating to hold you over a little longer.
Because I am honest, and take my reviews seriously, I have to mention that I gave my son some of these to try. Shortly thereafter his lips started to itch and his throat became scratchy. I'm not sure if these were the culprit, as there are zero documented cases of hemp allergies, however, it was too much of a coincidence to not mention. That being said, I have not had any type of reaction to them.
Possible allergic reaction aside, I give the Super Hemp Raw Organic
Shelled Hemp Seeds 8 stars:
If you strive for the benefits that the Hemp Seeds provide, you can grab a bag of them from Amazon HERE where they are currently $19.24. This is a discounted price and is likely to change as Amazon prices fluctuate constantly. There is no guarantee that you will get it at this price.
