Great protein source
April 22, 2014
I was looking for a new way to get a clean protein in my diet. I've been taking whey protein for years and though the brands I tend to use are totally horrible, they still have STUFF in them I don't want. Looking for a natural source I researched and found hemp protein. I love it. I feel if you're not used to natural things (ie: raw veggies, whole foods as they come from the earth, etc.) that the flavor may be 'like dirt' to you, but if you are used to eating 'clean' foods, more natural and whole that you won't mind the earthy flavor at all.
I mix it with a dash of vanilla extract, a little Vanilla Veggie Protein (MRM), flax, a few chia seeds, a touch of stevia powder, and some crushed roasted pumpkin seeds, with a little almond milk, pop int he freezer for 30 mins, stir and its like a vanilla soft serve. It also go great in my green smoothies, the fruit makes it less earthy.
