Marina's salad
Added 2016-12-02 10:32:40

Ingredients: 

  • Green lettuce – the variety and quantity of your choice, in this video I am using 3 heads of butterhead lettuce
  • 500 g / 1.1 lbs seedless tangerines  
  • 30 g / 1 oz hulled* hemp seeds
     

***

​​* I hear a lot people like to use unhulled seeds like sesame and hemp seeds. From what I understand,

we cannot digest hulls of the seeds. I use hemp and other seeds exclusively hulled.

Of all seeds - which I use sparingly anyway, hemp seeds are my favourite because:

Hemp seeds:

  •  contain a favourable ratio of omega 3 and omega 6, unlike other seeds that contain usually more omega 6 fatty acids.
     
  •  don't contain phytic acid like other seeds (and nuts). Phytic acid binds the minerals in the body creating unusable compounds. Phytic acid is water dissoluble, so it can be removed by soaking nuts and seeds. Hemp seeds thus don't require soaking.
     
  •  don't require dehydration! Generally, shelled nuts and seeds are dehydrated to prevent them from going rancid after they are shelled and thus exposed to the oxygen. Dehydration of nuts and seeds can render them not raw any more. Hemp seeds don't require dehydration.
     
  •  come from a hemp plant that requires no chemicals for growing.

​Order hulled hemp seeds:

  • Transfer the salad from the mixing bowl to the salad bowl;
