Quinoa Salad with Hemp Oil

Picture10

Recently, I’ve been using  oil a lot. Hemp oil is a flavorful oil that comes from the seeds of hemp plant. It is packed with many nutrients that are beneficial to health. I’ve read many encouraging reviews about physical pain, depression, anxiety, and other health issues. I use this oil a lot these days…in my morning detox juice or smoothies, for salad dressing and cooking. (People are often confused about THC content, but hemp seeds don’t contain any THC.)
