Hemp Seeds

“The unique thing about hemp seeds is that they contain all of the essential amino acids,” says Rumsey. Essential amino acids (which are building blocks of protein) cannot be produced by the body and must be ingested. Meat, chicken and fish contain all the essential amino acids, but hemp is one of the rare plant foods that does—making it a great choice for vegetarians. They don’t add a lot of flavor, but they’re big enough to add a nice crunch when you toss them into a salad or sprinkle them on top of toast spread with hummus.
