Hemp Seeds Even though it is a plant-based protein, hemp seeds deliver a more digestible form of protein than milk and eggs, and then some. "Hemp is a high-protein powerhouse with protein content of 11 grams per 3 tablespoons, and over 20 amino acids, including the 10 essential amino acids that your body must acquire through nutrition," says Kulakovska. She describes hemp as a "nutritional over-achiever," due to its high chlorophyll content, balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids, not to mention the fact that it's full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and anti-inflammatory properties. The cherry on top? Hemp is an eco-friendly and highly sustainable crop.
Eat hemp seeds raw, sprinkle them on salads, or grind them to add to baked foods and cereals.
