Hemp Happy Family

While shopping at Costco the other day, I stopped to taste some Hemp seeds they had out for tasting.  I was extremely surprised by the taste.  They have a nutty texture and puts me in the mind of sunflower seeds.  They also have another taste that I still haven’t been able to pinpoint.

After researching online I found out that they are a Super Food and very healthful to many health problems such as: high blood pressure, diabetes & more.  With a suggested intake of 4 tablespoons a day, I went for it.

In mostly all of the dishes and drinks that I’ve added the Hemp Seeds to you can either barley taste them or they add a nutty texture.  Hopefully this bag will last us until my next Costco visit.  However, I will be going this week to pick up a bag for my grandmother and if I think they won’t last, I need to pick us up another bag too.

So, have you tried Hemp Seeds? If so, have you noticed any differences in you health?

From Garden To Table: Sauteed Swiss Chard, Chicken & Feta Cheese Salad

A hot salad from the garden pleases every gardener.   Late yesterday evening I ran into the garden to find some extras to go along with some chicken tenderloins I baked in the oven.  I grabbed some….

1.Swiss Chard
2.Red Onion
3.Banana Pepper
4.Snap Peas
5. Cherry Tomatoes

I cleaned them all and chopped them up.  Drizzled a little olive oil in a hot skillet,  placed in my onions and snap peas first.  Let cook a bit and then I added everything else with the exception of my cooked chicken tenderloins (I chopped into bite size pieces).   While cooking I sprinkled in some pink himalayan salt, lemon pepper and goya seasoning and sautéing for appropriately 7 minutes or less.   Lastly, I added the chicken tenderloins (chopped into bite size pieces), stirred in and cooked for an additional 2-3 minutes. I wanted the swiss chard tender, but still having a bit of crunch and texture to all of the vegetables.

Served with crumbled feta cheese on top.

We love salads!! I think it’s time that I start making more hot salads.
