Local honey and hemp protein

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

This week I paid a visit to the local health food store. I found some local honey for DH. He suffers from allergies and I read somewhere that taking a spoonful of local honey helps alleviate the symptoms. After 4 days I can tell you: it works! How much nicer to have a spoonful of sweet yummy honey than take a pill full of chemicals! (Tetakawi is the local landmark)

I also picked up a canister of hemp protein powder. I have had 1 smoothie with it - powder and frozen strawberries. Not raving about it... I need to experiment and welcome suggestions!

The other thing I got was agave (miel de maguey), haven't tried it yet...

    I purchased hemp but haven't used it. I am a bit scared! It says you can eat it right out of the bag.

    Honey is sooo good for you! Glad to hear it worked on the allergies! Good to know! I have not tried hemp powder, only the hemp hearts. They are yummy.

    That sounds like a great thing to do for allergies. I will try it. Funny I just picked up 2 containers of Hemp Protein. I use a banana, 1 cup of almond milk, one cup of coconut water and a little vanilla. It's still not the tastiest thing in the world but very good for you and it is actually settling my tummy.
    How much do you pay for yours?
    Have a great day.
