Hemp food restaurant opens on the Avenue

Unique in the sense that her establishment named Nick & 2J’s offers a full THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol)-free hemp menu that provides nutritional benefits with a tasty twist. Asked why hemp? She claimed, “First of all, I don’t ever think inside the box – nine years ago I started barbecue pigtail.

I have always been the type of person to go out and do something totally different. I started provision chips and now a number of people have capitalised on my ideas. So now hemp.”

She continued, “Over the years as a caterer, I have come across many persons who have had many problems, such as health and allergy problems and other issues. Hemp is a very good product in that there are actually no side effects from it.

And even though it is somewhat related to marijuana, it has nothing like that.

It is extremely high in protein, it completes many nutritional aspects and I see as a protein and healthier alternative.” Daniel added that there is so much information out there but people don’t know anything about hemp.

According to an international website, hemp is a nutritional powerhouse.

Cultivated in China more than 6,000 years ago, it was used as a food source long before soy foods. Hemp seed is considered by leading researchers to be one of the most nutritious super foods on the planet, packed with protein, vitamin E, Omega-3, and GLA.

Hemp contains pure, digestible protein, with a good balance of all eight essential amino acids. It is comprised of smaller-chain edestin and albumin protein, making it the gold standard of plant foods. Hemp has three times the vitamin E of flax and twice the iron and magnesium (a key mineral often depleted by industrial agriculture) contained in flax.

On Thursday, Daniel served samples from her diverse hemp menu, including sweet and sour shrimp, hempouries, lobster corn soup, her ultimate hyros, geera dasheen, brownies and apple crumble.

Among other dishes on the hemp menu are tasty grilled foods, big-as-your-face doubles and meat entrees all with the Nick & 2J’s signature twist
