Summer Party Foods

Summer-time means great weather and great food! Today I have 3 recipes to share with you that are perfect for summer parties or just hanging out in your backyard! We’re making Hemp Hearts Guacamole, Quinoa Hemp Tabouli and Frozen Strawberry Lemonade. Hemp hearts is the theme for today’s video and I could not be more thankful to be a Manitoba Harvest ambassador!
