Packed with nutrients, Earth's magic happens when heated as the barks, roots and herbs release their powerful phytonutrients.
Earth is an incredibly grounding, nurturing, healing and regenerative superfood.

Sicilian Tomato & Basil Salad a la Hemp


Around this time of the year my family is involved in making and canning tomato sauce. Traditionally they have done this for centuries so that they have at least a years worth on hand.

Frankly though, I still prefer eating my tomatoes freshly picked off the vines from my parents garden, especially around this time of the year. I prefer them simply prepared as a salad on their own with some simple additions.

This tomato salad is prepared just the way my mama makes it, with just a wee personal touch...hemp seeds.

Hemp seeds are rich in protein and fatty acids. They also contain lots of minerals including zinc, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and iron.



2 to 3 tomatoes
1/2 sweet onion
3 to 4 leaves of basil
2 to 4 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
Hemp seeds (optional for added protein)
salt to taste


Slice sweet onions into thin strips; add 1 tsp of salt; set aside for 15 minutes.  In the meantime cut tomatoes into wedges. Rinse onions and add to tomatoes. Add olive oil and salt to taste. Add hemp seeds if desired. Garnish with sweet basil leaves.
