TUESDAY NUTRITION TIP – HEMP SEEDS 

Hemp seeds are a great source of plant-based protein. They are exceptionally nutritious and rich in healthy fats, protein and various minerals. They provide similar amounts of protein as beef and lamb.  Just sprinkle from the packet to add to your smoothie, on yoghurt or in salads to add a nutty flavour.   They can be purchased from supermarkets. 

One serving of hemp seeds, which is three tablespoons, provides:
  • Calories: 180

To add to the benefits, hemp seeds are a highly sustainable crop for the environment.
