Hemp Week: Nourishment From the Inside Out

This week we are celebrating one of our favorite superfoods — hemp! Hemp seeds have a well-rounded nutritional profile and are one of the powerhouse ingredients in our Blueberry Hemp Granola, Muesli and Oatmeal. Packed with fiber, fatty acids and protein, they are essential in maintaining a healthy diet. Hemp has beauty benefits too! Hemp oil is rich with omega-3s, vitamin E and sulfur, which are all key components in maintaining healthy skin and hair. With nutritional and beauty benefits, it’s no wonder the powerful little seed is quickly becoming a popular way to nourish the body from the inside out! Start benefitting now from the nutrient-packed plant with our favorite frisee salad topped with hemp seeds.
