5 Delicious Hemp Recipes You Have to Try

Hemp can be incorporated into a lot of different recipes. Read on to learn about 5 delicious hemp recipes you have to try.

Hemp has many health benefits but, unfortunately, is still relatively unknown to most consumers.

If you’ve ever considered cooking with the plant, here are a few hemp recipes you have to try, plus some very compelling reasons for cooking with it.

Why You Should Try Cooking With Hemp

One of the biggest benefits of cooking with hemp is that this plant is literally packed with protein. This is great news for anyone following a plant-based diet.

Hemp also contains a hearty dose of amino acids and omega 3 fatty acids–vital nutrients for any diet.

High fiber content is another good reason to get as much of this plant as possible in your diet.
