Product Review of Lean Hemp
By: Bria H-Moore
I had the privilege to trying LeanHemp’s 3 Pouch Variety Pack. LeanHemp is a 100% plant-based protein powder supplement. I integrated the product into my morning routine as a way to sneak more protein into my diet and to curb pre-lunch hunger (which can be a major distraction throughout the workday). Here are my thoughts on the three flavors:
Pure Hemp: ….Not my favorite. I used the Pure Hemp flavor in conjunction with a H-E-B Blendables Powerhouse Smoothie pack containing strawberries, bananas, red grapes, raspberries, blueberries, and kale. While the smoothie was palatable overall the taste of the Hemp was just a little too strong for my liking. Regardless, the smoothie did the trick in satisfying me and staving off my lunch time cravings.
Peanut Butter Maca: Second Place. I mixed this together in a banana and avocado smoothie with a little bit of almond milk. The flavors mixed together beautifully to create something that felt good to be consuming. Great way to start the morning.
Chocolate Maca: Easily my favorite. I simply put this in a shaker and mixed it with almond milk. This was easily my favorite flavor. It combined nicely with the almond milk and had the right amount of bitterness to it to make it smooth and tasty.
There is no need to be concerned about consuming LeanHemp products they are made with “food-grade hemp” in accordance to FDA guidelines. Furthermore the website asserts, “Lean Hemp does not contain THC, does not make you high, and will not trigger a positive result in drug testing!”
Would I use it again: Definitely! I’m always on the go and looking for ways to sneak something healthy into my diet. LeanHemp makes it easier to start the day off right by consuming something that’s healthy and energizing.
