Bok Choy Salad with Hemp Seed

I’m a sucker for a good shredded salad.

Things I’m also a sucker for:

  • sesame ginger dressing (recipe here)
  • high protein non-meat sources
  • Desmond from Lost (we’re mid-season 3 right now, brother)
  • 3-legged dogs (I just met the one that lives on my street today, his name is Poncho)

This recipe includes 3 of those 4 things (just kidding, only 2… wishful thinking, and no I do not mean the dog).

Hempseed is an amazing little ingredient. High in omega-3’s and protein (3 Tbsp have 10 grams of protein, which is twice as much as flax and two and half times what chia has)), it is a perfect non-meat protein and a great thing to easily introduce into your diet. I sprinkle them on salads, use them in my granola and put them in smoothies. This is what Trader Joes has to say: Hemp Seed

Here’s a good recipe for you and hemp seed to get to know each other…
