The month of March will be all about nutrition this year; at least it will be in the USA and Canada, where they will be celebrating National Nutrition Month.
National Nutrition Month will focus on being aware of your health and diet, on acquiring information and on consciously choosing in favour of or against certain foods. The campaign highlights both the establishment and maintenance of a healthy diet.
For us, this is a perfect opportunity to re-acquaint you with a few of our quick and, above all, healthy hemp seed recipes. We hope you enjoy reading and preparing them!
Sensi Shake (vegan)
For many years, the Sensi Seeds Café in Amsterdam – for which you only had to cross the canal bridge from the Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum – had the Sensi Shake on the menu; a delicious and nourishing mix of fresh fruit and hemp seeds. Its recipe was kept a secret, of course, but since the café was renovated and turned into a Sensi Seeds Shop a few years ago, drinks are no longer served, which means that the recipe can now be shared. Here it is.
Hemp seed banana bread
This delicious cake is easy to make and quite impressive. Plus, it will only take about 10 minutes to mix the ingredients. The only difficult part is waiting until it has cooled down once it’s out of the oven! You’ll find the recipe here.
Hemp seed pesto (vegan)
It will only take you about 5 minutes to prepare our basil and hemp seed pesto, perhaps 10. It contains no dairy or gluten, and tastes delicious. You’ll find the recipe here.
Hemp seed porridge (vegan)
This nutritious, tasty and dairy-free dish will provide the perfect start to your day. Try it. You’ll find the recipe here.
Hemp seed hummus (vegan)
Hummus – which is essentially chick pea puree – is a lovely snack and therefore quite popular at parties and picnics. It’s also great on a cracker when you feel a little peckish in between meals. This quick recipe is flavourful as well as healthy, as the hemp seeds provide your body with essential fatty acids and protein. The chick peas are high in fibre, iron and other important minerals, while tahini supplies calcium. Here is the hummus recipe.
Homemade hemp milk (vegan)
Looking for an alternative to cow’s milk? Why not try hemp milk? It is easy to make, healthy and it tastes wonderful. Hemp milk provides your body with the necessary fatty and amino acids, as well as minerals. Making the hemp milk takes no longer than 5 minutes.
Homemade hemp muesli (vegan)
This wonderful breakfast with hemp seeds is packed full of delicious ingredients and tastes excellent. Hemp muesli only takes a few minutes to prepare and will give your day the kick-start it needs. Why not try it? Here is our hemp muesli recipe.
