Hemp Protein? Huh? What’s that? Welll, lets just say it is really good for you. I mean, take a look at the bag there!

And not only that, it contains all 9 of the essential amino acids¬†making it one of the most complete proteins out there! Can’t beat that!

This shake? Chocolate, Banana, Protein? Yes, all the good stuff wrapped into what we call “lunch!” I love fooling myself sometimes!
