Hemp

hemp2.jpgFirst time at Integral Yoga (after many years) I saw hemp seeds--marketed as hemp nuts, as they are not actually seeds, from what I understand--and could not figure out how to use them. They are the new megafood, high protein with all the essential amino acids. Hemp is usually bird food, but once the hard husk is removed hemp is good for humans too. Interesting discussion of whether you can pass the urine test after eating this stuff. Turns out hemp activism is about more than smoking dope. Hemp is versatile and could put cotton out of business, so the cotton industry has been fighting it, or so the cashier says. She makes hemp seed milk in the blender--just hemp and water--or she eats it like nuts, straight. I make a nut/seed mixture (flax, sesame, sunflower, pumpkin, almonds, cashews) that we toss into salad or over hot cereal in the morning. I've now added hemp!
