Archive for the ‘Nutiva Hempshake’ Category


July 29, 2008

The lady who was supposed to let me view the apartment cancelled on me and there wasn’t enough time for me to switch gears and walk to the bus station, so I have a bit of time before work and just decided to post lunch and dinner now. On my walk yesterday I passed one of my favourite health food stores and decided to pick up something new. I was intrigued by the single serving packets of Nutiva Hempshake so I picked up the chocolate flavour. One packet is 30g and contains 7g of protein, 7g of sugar, 12g of fibre, 2g of fat and 80 calories. I mixed my packet with 1/2 cup skim milk, 1/2 cup water, a very ripe banana, and 5-6 large ice cubes. I let it go in the blender for quite a while to make sure everything was combined. The verdict? Pretty good! It had a little bit of that chalky protein taste but I’m weird and kind of enjoy the taste of protein powders. I’m considering buying a large container of protein powder so it was really nice to be able to buy a small packet first before committing to anything larger. It sounds like I’m talking about a relationship here, with my commitment issues to protein powder… haha. Anyone have a protein powder they recommend? I know Jenna likes this whey protein powder but I haven’t found that kind anywhere yet.

The plastic smoothie cup I got my Liquid Nutrition smoothie in was quite thick so I decided to wash it and reuse it. I’ll only use it a few more times because I don’t know how good it is to reuse plastics, but I like the cup and my Hempshake smoothie looks pretty in it 🙂

I also had a Clif Kid z-bar in chocolate chip.

Packed for dinner is an almond butter and blueberry jam sandwich on two slices of cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread, along with some baggies of veggies- yellow cherry tomatoes, carrots, and celery.

See you all tomorrow!
