As you may well know, hemp is an ancient natural superfood which is an excellent source of fiber (low carb), protein, and the ideal balance of Omega3 to Omega 6 fats. At David's, my [almost] brother-in-law, advice I gave hemp protein a try. Through trial and error, I have found that both Nutiva hemp products and Manitoba Hemp products are the best in quality and value. Personally, I prefer Manitoba Harvest since the company is very personable and really cares about their customers. The send great newsletters with recipes, tips, and promotions.
I routinely use Manitoba Harvest Organic Hemp Protein Powder with Fiber or the plain hemp protein powder in my smoothies, soups, and baking. The powder is gluten free, dairy free, and all other "allergy free's" unless you have an allergy to hemp, of course :) It has a great taste and can even be eaten plain, but works best in smoothies (see my upcoming ginger pear hemp smoothie) and especially in soups. The hemp is perfect for any bean, lentil, or marrow bone soup such as my Collard and Grass Fed Marrow Soup (great soup for superb nutrition on a budget!)
Manitoba Harvest would like to introduce you to David Jockers. Mike Fata, our President and Co-founder along with Autumn Bree, our US Marketing & Education Manager first had the pleasure of meeting David at a consumer show in Atlanta. As David listened attentively and asked what can only be described as the perfect questions, Mike and Autumn were drawn into conversation. Throughout the short time they were able to all spend together a bond was formed. Autumn was raised in a chiropractic family from the age of 3 months to 20 years and Mike is a self-taught expert in self realization and nutrition and both were struck and pleased to see what the next generation is prepared to bring into the world. Read on and be amazed.
"As a health care professional, a nutrition and natural health expert, I give Manitoba Harvest hemp products 2 big thumbs up. The complete protein, the chlorophyll content, and the ideal omega 6:3 ratio with the GLA make hemp a perfect staple food for anyone desiring to live free of sickness and disease and experience maximized living. I discuss the value of hemp in all of my natural health workshops and recommend it to everyone I know. It is one of the best nutritional products I have ever researched and used. Manitoba Harvest’s superior commitment to excellence in their product and their environmentally conscious business behaviours make them the leader in hemp products worldwide. "
