Well.ca has 25% off Manitoba Harvest hemp food items, which include hemp hearts, hemp oil, protein powder and more.
Last week I was doing some research on protein powder, as the bottle I had ran out and I wanted to try a new kind. I wanted one that was high in fibre, from a plant source and with no added sugars. I probably spent about three hours looking at different brands and reading articles about the different types of protein. While I found that whey is the most commonly-used type of protein, it comes from milk, which I no longer drink because it can increase inflammation in the body and I don't believe humans need cow's milk. I wanted a plant protein and I've heard amazing things about hemp and what an easily renewable resource it is.
I decided to get the Hemp Pro 50, because it has only 120 calories per serving, 1 gram of sugar, 15 grams of protein and is 45% of my iron intake for the day. I'm glad I got called away as I was putting the order in, as it is on sale this week from $35.99 to $26.99.
If you aren't interested in the protein powder, but want something healthy to sprinkle on cereal, yogurt, in smoothies and in your baking, the Hemp Heartsare very popular. Read the glowing reviews if you don't believe me. Was $17.99, now $13.49.
Shipping is free once you spend $25 at Well.ca.
