Welcome, Spring!!! :mrgreen: It is a beautiful, sunny day here in Cambridge! The birds are chirping, the tulips are blooming, and the streets of Harvard Square are alive! 😀

Spring, I am so happy that you are finally here!

I ended up eating lunch at my desk this afternoon, but only because I wanted a little extra time to enjoy the gorgeous weather this afternoon.

Lunch recap: a Pink Lady apple, Stonyfield yogurt with pumpkin seeds, golden raisins, and walnuts, a Soy Joy bar, and tomato salad made with olive oil, ground fennel seeds, and feta.

Hemp Iced Coffee?

I’ve been trying to figure out how to incorporate more hemp protein into my diet– mostly because hemp protein has an excellent nutritional profile and I want it part of my life! 😉 I’ve toyed with the idea of mixing hemp protein into my daily cup of joe, but I wasn’t sure if it would work and if it would taste okay.

This afternoon, I purchased an iced coffee, added a spoonful of hemp protein, and then began to stir it in.

After about 15 seconds of vigorous stirring, I achieved hemp iced coffee success! 😀

With the addition of soy milk and a little agave nectar to my iced coffee, I couldn’t taste the hemp protein at all. There was a slight “chalky” aftertaste, but nothing too obvious.

I’m glad that I tried this little hemp protein-iced coffee experiment this afternoon! Hemp protein instantly “health-ifies” a regular, old iced coffee! I’m a big fan of this addition! I wonder if hot coffee works, too?
