Quinoa Seeds vs Hemp Seeds

These tiny little seeds are claimed to be the worlds nutrition seed which is high in Protein. I beg to differ!

It’s not even a true grain or cereal as it’s related to spinach, beets and tumbleweed. Have you added spinach, beets or tumbleweed to your diet? Most people don’t eat these highly nutritional foods.

Harvesting time is difficult as they need to be harvested by hand. Most are grown in high altitudes and unlike hemp stokes, the Quinoa Seeds take a longer period to grow and harvesting time is difficult to determine. These seeds need plenty of water to survive. For information on the process of harvesting Hemp Seeds you’ll have to come back for a future blog.

These seeds can be grown in your own garden, unlike hemp seeds which will get you into trouble. Would you consider enjoying them all year long by growing them in your garden?
