Our Fall Superfood Salad with a kick of brain-balancing CBD screams “AUTUMN!” The butternut Squash, cinnamon, and pecan flavors conjure mental pictures of hayrack rides and crisp fall leaves crunching underfoot. A full serving of Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts adds 10 grams protein, 12 grams Omegas 3 & 6, and complement the salad’s rich nutty taste.
