This month’s giveaway is sponsored by Manitoba Harvest.
2 lucky winners (and yes, you Canadians can enter and win) will receive gift packs of Hemp Hearts, Hemp Heart Toppers, and Hemp Protein Smoothie (with a value of around $50).
I recently was sent some packages of the Hemp Heart Toppers to try. I love this product since it takes something that I already use, and find nutritionally beneficial, Hemp Hearts, and takes them up a flavor notch to make them even better and easier to use. The savory flavored toppers are a wonderful addition to salads, soups and many of the plain grain and bean dishes that I make often. The sweet ones are perfect for oatmeal or my homemade soy yogurt.
The toppers come in the following flavors: Maple & Cinnamon; Coconut & Cocoa; Onion, Garlic & Rosemary; and Chipotle, Onion & Garlic.
Why include hemp? It is a wonderful source of Omega 3 fatty acids in what I would consider a more palatable form than flax. Flax must be ground to absorb it well and ground flax is wonderful as a binder and less tasty as a topper on food. Hemp tastes good and is good for you in moderate amounts (1 to 2 tablespoons per day).
There is a two step process to enter: 1st you MUST enter your email below in Rafflecopter, 2nd you MUST leave a comment on this post about what you think of hemp, for your chance to win this prize package and get more good nutrition into your life, (scroll to the bottom of this page to “Leave a Reply” section to post your comment).

Congratulations to them and thank you to all of you who entered.
