Hemp is gaining ground for all sorts of uses. The versatile oil made from hemp seeds can be an extraordinary way to enjoy eating healthfully. You get a nice immunity boost from hemp oil, with its high amount of essential fatty acids (EFAs). It is imperative that you get them in some form, because your body can’t produce EFAs on its own. So, you must eat foods that supply the all important omega-3 and omega-6. Hemp oil is a good source of both.
Wondering what other benefits there are to consuming hemp? Great skin, cancer prevention, lowered PMS symptoms, reduced inflammation, and some scientists are seeing improved memory and anti-aging, to name a few. There are a lot of reasons to experiment with hemp oil.
This dressing takes hemp’s nutty flavor into account, adding the delicate sweetness of pomegranate to make a balanced profile, with mint for extra sparkle. The honey and mustard are in quantities that won’t overpower. Instead, they boost up the dominate flavors of mint, pomegranate and hemp oil.
You can easily whip this up in about five minutes, which makes it rival the speed of opening a bottle of store-bought dressing that can be loaded with less healthful ingredients. This dressing won’t weigh you down, and it’s good for your heart.
Experiment with the amounts of the ingredients to get it just right for your own taste. You might want to try the same ratios but swap apple cider vinegar in place of the pomegranate and Dijon in place of the prepared mustard. There are lots of ways to enjoy making salads with hemp oil. Let’s get started!
