3 Easy, Healthy Dinners

Today I’m sharing 3 healthy, plant-based and gluten-free dinner ideas. If you’re stuck in a food rut today’s blog post is for you!

As an ambassador for Manitoba Harvest and all my recipes today will include their Hemp Hearts also known as shelled hemp seeds. If you’ve been following me on Instagram and subscribed to our channel for a while now you know that I love hemp hearts. They have 10 grams of protein as well as 12 grams of omega 3 & omega 6 fats per serving! My daughter Ella also love hemp seeds – we call them sprinkles on our house! They are great in oatmeal, in a smoothie, on toast or in the 3 recipes I’m sharing with you today! So let’s get started!
