Hey yall -
Just wanted to let you know I found you can eat hemp as a grain, and unhulled hemp is very affordable (sort of like quinoa).
Traditionally roast it like buckwheat or kasha and serve as a rice. I'm amazed by this food. You can eat bowls of it. Unlike hulled hemp seeds, which you'd starve to death on because they are $18 a pound some places, unhulled seeds are practically free in comparison and you can have a good bowl a day. Out of a serving with 18g carbohydrates, 16.5g is fiber. Very safe with my insulin; and there seems to be some magical mineral formula in the hemp shell that upregulates blood sugar metabolism and downregulates high insulin spikes.
Suggest roasting it in a big tray first then doing what you will with it (making seed butter, flour, just serving as is, drying to have as snack, granola)
Why isn't this food popularized?????
Anyway, this is part of my research for my Vegan Paleo Book - No Carb Vegan. My link is down below to the article I wrote, if you'd like more information. Just found this out today.
Wish you well
