I can not begin to explain how much I love hummus. It is without a doubt the best thing in the world. I have been in countless situations where the only thing I can find to eat is bread (or crackers) and hummus. In this post, I’m going to show you how I make my vegan hemp seed hummus. It’s so creamy and packed with nutrition and good healthy fats.
Hummus is always there for you
As a vegan sometimes there just aren’t any options available. However, hummus is always a friend. It will never let you down…. unless it has dairy in it! Why would anyone do that?
Hummus comes in all forms and flavors, I, however, am team plain. Yep, sorry to let you down. Nothing can compare to creamy plain old hummus. Preferably in the company of quality Italian olive oil and Dukkah. These things together, with crunchy baguette, yum! But how about adding some hemp seeds to the mix?
Hemp seeds to the rescue
Hemp seeds are probably one of the healthiest seeds you could ever put in your mouth. According to Medical News today They are packed with healthy fatty acids such as Omega-3 and Omega-6. Hemp also contains phytosterols, which help in reducing the amount of cholesterol in the body. Studies have also shown that eating hemp seeds may reduce your risk of heart disease and lower blood pressure.
Hemp seeds are also rich in:
Protein Fat Calcium Iron Magnesium Potassium Zinc Folate Vitamins C, B, A & E
Hemp seeds are a nutritional bomb for the body and the skin and eating hemp seeds or hemp oil on a regular basis can be very beneficial to those suffering from skin problems such as Eczema or Atopic dermatitis.
