Spicy Thai Chicken Drum Sticks with Hemp Hearts

July 20, 2017

Plain old chicken is boring, so why not shake things up a tad!? These drumsticks took no time to prepare but tasted like I’d slaved over them for hours, if I do say so myself. And we’re all friends here so I feel like I can be real and say I would never ever slave over ANYTHING for hours! 

All you need is:

Mix Toasted Hemp Seeds and bread crumbs in a bowl. Coat drum stick with Olive Oil. Completely coat each drum stick with mixture and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 425° for 25 minutes

Serve with a squirt of fresh lime and a nice big salad! Enjoy!

Spice Things Up a Little with Sriracha Avocado Toast & Hemp Seeds

June 27, 2017

Toasted Hemp Seeds are my newest fave way to top everything from avocado toast to a salad! Stick around to the end for the coupon code!

Sometimes I get tired of breakfast food and crave a little something spectacular! But honestly, I’m too busy in the morning to put too much effort into a fancy breakfast for myself. I mean, before kids we always made big delicious breakfasts and were able to take the time to craft something fancy. Lately, I’ve been on a quest to find ways to have some of those fancy pre-kid things in my life without having to sacrifice too much time or effort. Enter Toasted Hemp Seeds.

Manitoba Harvest sent me a bag of their Toasted Hemp Seeds in Sriracha and MAN! What a kick! A little sprinkle on top of my avocado toast and it was transformed into a brunch spectacular. I’ve also been adding Toasted Hemp Seeds to salads to kick things up a notch or sprinkle on top of a chicken stir fry for a little pizzazz, not to mention a big healthy dose of protein and omegas!

For this simple recipe, all you’ll need is:

Presidents Choice makes these awesome Avocado Chunks that are seriously a live saver for me. If you’re like me and it frustrates you to try and buy avocados that aren’t either under ripe or over ripe, these are for you. The chunks are individually frozen so I can just take out what I need and defrost it.

Once the avocado chunks are defrosted, I add 1 tablespoon of Mayonaise and mash up the avocado with a fork until it’s the consistency that I like. I like mine pretty smooth, but everyone is different! Once that’s all mixed you can scoop it out onto your toast and finish it off with a little sprinkle of Toasted Hemp Seeds. You can find these in Sea Salt flavor, too! The Sriracha is just enough spice. My toddler was even loving them and he lets me know when things are too spicy!

Want to grab some Toast Hemp Seeds for yourself?  Use this code: ToastedOnToast to receive 15% off the entire Manitoba Harvest website. The coupon code is good until July 31, 2017.
