Let me tell you all, this adventure is WORTH IT! (I have to say thank you to my dear friend Benita for even mentioning the place- she is the guru of cool places to shop!)
Here is what I got!
Hulled Hemp Seeds
Buckwheat Pancake Mix
Heres some pictures:
Here is all the purchases (minus the spices) The hemp is that "multi-colored" one next to the pancake mix!
Now, chia seeds are magical! but also very difficult to find. I have never seen them in any grocery store, so the discovery of them at bulk barn made me so happy! They were a litle pricey, But I don't mind! Same thing with the hemp seeds, although I'm fairly certain they would be fairly easy to get if I just looked around more. Regardless, these are my two new foods to munch on and become creative with.
Here is a bit of info on these fantastic little chia seeds (which thanks to katheats for recommending them!) Apparently they are high in fiber, fatty acids (Omega 3- which is the omega you wanna get people!)have tons of IRON (its like eating a decent amount of spinach...), calcium, and antioxidants!
