Embracing Your Best Self :: Tara of Happy Hemp

January 28th, 2013

Forget everything you thought you knew about hemp: for the next installment of our Embracing Your Best Self series, Maja interviews Tara Miko, founder of Happy Hemp, who spills on this super food and her many other healthy lifestyle choices. She also recently introduced us to our favorite new snack, toasted hemp seeds! By the way, Miss Miko is a far cry from any dread-locked health-food hippy — she actually spent years working in the L.A. fashion industry before founding her company. Specializing in the highest-quality raw and toasted hemp seeds, Happy Hemp culinary products have already been featured on CNN and They taste great as a simple snack, but can also be used to season meats, dress salads and add protein to smoothies. In our latest interview, Tara takes us inside her brimming-with-color Austin home to give us a taste of what inspires her healthy lifestyle and how she incorporates hemp into her everyday life. Click through for all the details shot by Chelsea Fullerton.

    I’m excited to try the super green juice! I have been looking for a “green” smoothie recipe that isn’t just kale + every fruit under the sun…aka sugar overload. The mint in this will be a nice touch! Thanks!

    I love hemp seeds and have been eating them for a while now. Their delicate, earthy flavour tastes great in the smoothies I enjoy after my workout.

    Great feature! Love Tara’s story and had to check out her product. Wow, there really is no overstating how great these seeds are. You’ve earned a new fan for life, and I’m even sending some to my parents and sisters on the east coast. Now we’re a happy hemp family.
