  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper

In large saucepan: Poach chicken breasts in water, add poaching spices and cook on medium heat, turning chicken over once or twice, for 20 -25 min. Do NOT boil or over cook! (Chicken will be tough). Let chicken sit in broth for 10 min. more to ensure it is cooked through. Remove chicken from pan; place in dish to cool in the fridge 2-3 hours. Strain broth with sieve; place in a sealed container for use another time.

Meanwhile-Heat oven to 325, place walnuts in pie tin or dish and roast for 5-6 min. DO NOT OVER COOK! Let cool 10-15 min. Break into small pieces, enough for 3/4 cup.

After chicken has cooled, cube chicken. In large bowl, with wooden spoon, gently m ix together remaining salad ingredients chill at least 1 hour before serving.

Use a sharp knife or it chicken will come out shredded. Add Mayo AFTER adding hemp oil, and then add Mayo. You will be surprised how much the chicken absorbs the hemp oil and Mayo, especially overnight. I usually add ¼ more hemp oil the next day. Suit yourself.

Hemp HeartsTM (shelled hemp seeds) Recipe.

Get maximum benefit from your Hemp HeartsTM (shelled hemp seeds)

Human tissues require nourishment every morning with slow digesting proteins, omega fats and raw, long fiber foods containing vitamins and enzymes--essential nutrients--not starch, sugar and blended, processed foods. Those who consume most of their essential nutrients each morning have all day to utilize any possible excess and can control weight easily.

Digestive systems function best with raw, unprocessed foods that release nutrients slowly and continuously.

The long fibers in raw, unprocessed foods remain intact to tie wastes together so they are able to move with contractions through the digestive system. Those who consume Hemp HeartsTM (shelled hemp seeds) with long fiber foods normally expel wastes after every meal.

Those without excess weight who wish to "turbo-charge" themselves for amazing productivity and those who need to rebuild their bodies after serious illness can consume Hemp HeartsTM (shelled hemp seeds) again in the afternoon. 

Those who change to Hemp HeartsTM (shelled hemp seeds) and long fiber foods, but who do not strictly avoid starches, may sometimes experience gas and watery stools as liquefied, incompletely digested starches are swept through the digestive system by faster moving Hemp HeartsTM (shelled hemp seeds) and long fiber foods.

Those who eat significant amounts of sugar, starch and processed foods inevitably become obese--or they cheat themselves of essential nutrients, causing progressive tissue health failure. Insufficient essential nutrients initially cause dry hair and skin, eczema and psoriasis. Later it may also cause arthritis and prostate inflammation. Insufficient essential nutrients eventually cause veins and arteries to lose their elasticity: Unable to expand and contract with each heartbeat, hardened blood vessels do not assist the heart with circulation or keep themselves clean. Deteriorating blood vessels increase the possibility of stroke, aneurysm and heart disease and eventually result in premature health failure.


Hemp Foods provide amazing lifestyle benefits,
often experienced from the first day, are a result of improved nutrition.
