Caprese toast is one of my favorite things to whip up for a quick, healthy breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It’s especially good in the summer season when tomatoes are bursting with flavor. Wondering why all these recipes are topped with toasted hemp seeds?

Hemp seeds are a healthy, vegan source of protein. They’re packed with 10 grams of protein per serving! If you’re vegan or vegetarian and struggling to get enough protein in your life try adding hemp seeds to your diet.


  • 1 slice of bread
