Hemp Protein, Hemp Seeds and Hemp Oil special!

May 11, 2011

 This was one of the first specials that I ran on opensky, but since people love hemp and use a lot of it, I wanted to run this again. Make sure you order this quickly as this special will run out fast. It’s a popular item!

Remember, you have to be signed up to receive my specials. Signing up is easy and free!

One of the biggest questions I get asked about going raw is how to get enough protein. We all know that dark green leafies are the highest source, but what about when you’re on the run?
If I can’t sit down to a full meal or when I just want a boost, hemp products are my go-to quick and nutritious solution.
You can make a delicious smoothie with hemp powder (a great way to quickly replenish your muscles after a heavy workout!). Sprinkle hempseeds on top of salads, raw ice cream, even brownies. Prep a tasty salad dressing in advance using hemp oil to ensure you’re getting those all-important omega oils. 
All three are easy ways to power up and feel great!

Here’s the recipe for my favorite power boost smoothie recipe:

  • Nutiva hemp powder
  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Coconut water
  • (optional: kale for a little extra green power)
    Combine in a blender and enjoy!

     There are many products which are rich in proteins that are out now in the market. Chocolates are one of it. I know that many of us do love it but we should limit ourselves on too much eating because excessive intake of protein is not good for our health.

    Hi,

    Do you think organic sources of protein are more successful than whey protein you buy in tubs?. Thanks
