Why I Love This Recipe

Many “Planners” are reporting great success with weight loss when adding hemp seeds to their meals.

Ingredients You'll Need

• 1 cup shelled hemp seeds
• 2 tightly packed cups of fresh basil
• 1/2 tsp salt
• Freshly ground black pepper
• 2 tbsp lemon juice
• 1 clove garlic, minced (2 cloves if
you’re a garlic fan)
• 2/3 cup water
• 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


Place hemp seeds in a food processor fitted with the S blade. Grind till they’re powdery.

Add basil and pulse to combine well.

Add salt, pepper, lemon, garlic, and pulse


With the motor running, add water in a thin stream, as if you were making a nut pate. Stop once in a while to scrape the bowl.

Keep adding water until the pesto is still quite thick, but not pasty.

Keep motor running, and finish the pesto by drizzling in the 2 tbsp EVOO. This isn’t necessary, but it’ll give the pesto a more

traditional flavor.
