How To Include Hemp In Your Everyday Meals

Jul 13, 2021by Mt. Elephant

Hemp has been used for thousands of years and is one of the most useful plants on Earth. Not only does it grow quickly, but it requires little weeding, thrives in most climates, naturally resists plant diseases and enriches the soil it grows in. Sounds pretty perfect. Every gardener's dream. Did we mention it is also considered a very nutritious seed? 

Hemp seeds are a rich source of vitamins and minerals, are full of soluble and insoluble fibre, which helps with digestion and feeling fuller for longer. It contains a really good balance of healthy Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids.

So now that we know about the benefits of hemp seeds, Mt. Elephant has shared some simple ways to help us incorporate their nutritional value in every meal.

Finding inspiration for a quick, delicious but nutritious lunch meal can be really difficult and if you’re like us there’s only so many days you can eat a roast veggie salad.

Mt. Elephant’s Savoury Protein Bread can be a delicious lunch option topped with avocado, Hemp Seeds & chilli flakes. Even better you can make it on the weekends and grab it as you’re running out the door.

As it is a bread mix, you can even customise it to make it your own. This could look like, adding in some grated carrot and zucchini, or nutritional yeast for a cheez-y flavour, totally up to you!

Hemp can be really powerful at the end of the day, due to its magnesium contents. This is why we’re absolutely loving this Hemp & Kale Pesto Pasta which will give you the good dose of nutrients you need for a restful night’s sleep.

This pasta dish uses Hemp Seeds and Hemp Seed Oil. Something as simple as a drizzle or a sprinkle here and there, is a great way to incorporate hemp into meals and we think it gives this dish the perfect touch!
