This feels really great! Just to see the scales drop a little.  I feel like these next several pounds could take a while to drop, especially with having to take it easy on my knee, so I'm doing zero cardio these days.  I am super excited to see this on the scale though!

Now for the good stuff! 

Last week we told you about a protein powder, and we talked about the importance of feeding your muscles protein after a workout.  You can read about that HERE.

I mentioned that we would be sharing another protein powder with you soon, and so today we want to share about Manitoba Harvest. Their product is made with hemp, and is plant based! Here's a big about the protein powders.

HempPro 70 - It's water soluble and has a smooth texture! It's also our higher protein option (the Original flavour has 20 grams of protein per 30 gram serving). We love this protein in a post run smoothie or yoga shake (yes, you can literally shake it with your favorite beverage and you're good to go). Comes in three delicious flavours; Chocolate, Vanilla and Original.

We got to try both vanilla and chocolate, and here are a few things we did with them.

VANILLA HEMPPRO 70

Of course, loving smoothies so much, I added this stuff to my every day breakfast or lunch fruit smoothie. Vanilla is a great compliment to any fruit smoothie in my opinion, so I added it in with mixed fruit (strawberries, banana, pineapple and mango), but it also went well with my banana, peanut butter smoothie! Those are my two go-to smoothies.

Big Sis added it to a yummy Greek Yogurt and granola snack.  Chocolate or Vanilla would taste great added to some yogurt, and adds extra protein as well.

In one serving of Hemp Pro 70, you get 15 grams of protein and 3.4 grams of Omega 3 & 6.

CHOCOLATE HEMPPRO 70

With the chocolate protein I decided to try something a little different, and makes some healthy muffins.  We are big muffin lovers at my house, so finding healthy muffins to make is a WIN!

These muffins are great! They can be eaten for breakfast, a snack, or frozen and reheated for later, plus they are a healthy version!!! What's not to love!

And finally, what I love about the Manitoba Harvest HempPro 70 is the short ingredient list!

Ingredients: Hemp protein concentrate, organic coconut sugar, organic vanilla flavor, natural plant extracts.

You know it's good when there isn't a mile long ingredient list, it's as close to it's natural form as it can be!

 

this  protein powder is a great choice if you are looking for one. It has great flavor, and the cost is reseaonable, which you can't say about them all.
