Hey all,
I'm trying to change up the 'ol traditional farm boy diet of bacon, eggs, beef and potatoes.

I really like raw vegetables, whole grains, seeds, nuts and fruit so I thought I would be sensible about things. It seems that every diet is doomed to failure because of the radical approach which is promoted with dietary change. NO person enjoys having their lives up-rooted.

Example, if you raise an indoor garden - go one day and make a radical diet alteration. Feed your flowering plants vegetative formula for a week and see what happens. MJ cultivators reading this are saying ??wtf?? you can't do that!! You'll TORCH your garden. Your plants will get sick....etc.
So why do we insist on treating our bodies with this strategy??

Replacement is the key - In My Opinion. One bite-at-a-time clears the plate (rather than just dumping the whole mess in at once and hoping for the best).

So here's one thing I've been trying and really liking:

These things are freakin' tasty. They go great on cereal, salads, and just plain too!!

What I immediately notice is that my joint inflammation seems to be reduced. In cold weather, my hands bother me with arthritic inflammation of the knuckles. I haven't noticed this condition since I've begun consuming the hemp seeds.

Not sure what the total weight on the products are in the link you posted, but here's another place I know of that carries hemp seed also, whole and shelled. plus free shipping.

"I put that shit on everything"

I sometimes eat alot sometimes I let it slide, but on peanut butter toast, in stir fry, pasta sauce, pretty well whenever I'm mixing lots of stuff just before it's ready to eat I dump some on

The link provided by Cheetolay seems to be in the same price range as what I paid.

These folks are also bringing attention to the chia seeds - way thanks for the new idea!

Thanks for this post Myc. We were looking into a hemp protein powder to make smoothies with. I like the hemp hearts idea.

Costco has hulled hemp seeds (same as hemp hearts right??) and chi seeds if your near one. Bobs Red Mill also has the hilled hemp seeds on their website.

I like "popping" quinoa and adding it to my steel cut oats. Trying to work my eating more towards the paleo/"caveman" direction.

You can buy hemp milk someplaces, or make your own by blending with water, then could use as part of a smoothy mix

I really like to make the blender milk.

One of my favourite foods :)

Hemp hearts are pretty easy to find at a good price in Canada.

3 cups non.dairy milk to 1/2 cup chia seeds makes a solid base
add whatever flavors please you at this point
stick it in the fridge and after about 4 hours passes it will set up nicely
i then enjoy scooping some into a bowl
and plopping some berries on top

Thanks USA. How long does it last and do the seeds get soft or is the texture like eating a seeded pudding?

I came back to reply with some results.
The hemp hearts are really tasty and go great on tons of stuff - and just plain by themselves they're great too.

I have been paying attention to the anti-inflammatory properties. So to do a proper test, I allowed myself to run out of hemp hearts.

After 3 days, stiffness and joint inflammation are beginning to return. I have a trick knuckle with some kinda painful hitch in it - the finger just kinda locks up sometimes. While consuming hemp hearts, I've had NO trouble from this issue. Since temporarily discontinuing the hemp hearts, that knuckle is bringing the reactor back online - and the pain (and hitching) is returning.
Also, this is a bit more anecdotal - but I seem to have an increased "up-ness". I feel more positive and enthusiastic - lifted. I definitely feel as if I have been taking vitamin supplements - maybe just placebo - psychological empowerment resulting from mindfulness? Cheaper than anti-depressants any day.

I'm off to re-supply today.

I've realized I'm horrible deficient in Omega 3s, I'm looking into hemp hearts instead of taking fish oil supplements. Are there any Omega 3s in fish oil that aren't available in hemp hearts? I need to research further...

chia seeds are also high in omega-3's and 6's and fiber
we add them to drinks, and make the almond milk pudding too
good stuff :)
