Melissa's Real Raw Truth

Raw Organic Hemp Seed

One of my favorite "SuperFoods" is the Hemp Seed.  They are known to be the earth's most nutritious seeds.  They are packed with 33% protien and 40% essential fatty acids, and are rich in iron.  They are high in antioxidants such as naturally occurring chlorophyll and vitamin E complex.

The tasty little Hemp seed look like sesame seeds but have a subtle nutty rich flavor, and are delicious sprinkled on raw salads, cereal, and smoothies. But I just like to eat them by the spoonfull!

One of the many questions I get asked about concerning the raw diet is"what is your protien source"? Well, hemp seed is one of the best sources of protien that I have come across.You can buy them at Whole Foods, but if you want to buy in bulk, you can go online to .

Hemp is all around the most useful plant on the planet.  Hemp is food, clothing, paper, oil, medicine, and so much more.  This plant has over 25,000 uses.  We could build our homes, drive our cars, clothe ourselves, feed the world, stop deforestation, reverse global warming, and so much more...only if we could grow this plant in our own country.  Planting just 6% of our nations farm land in hemp would end the demand for fossil fuels in America forever.  Not to mention hemp enriches the soil for other crops and does not require the use of pesticides.  This plant can actually save the planet!  I have three children and I think about their future on this planet all the time.  If I was not such a believer, I would be afraid for the health of the earth and the inhabitants (our children and grandchildren, mine and yours).  However, I am a believer, and I know if we become educated about this plant we can turn the fate of this planet around and live incredibly sustainable abundant lives. 

Do yourself a favor and eat some hemp seeds for their nutritionial value, but watch out for the side affects, you could be contributing to saving our planet.

Keep it Raw-
