Didn’t know about hemp seed and dulse flakes.
def going to add to my smoothies
thanks for sharing!
Sure, enjoy Joshua! You might want to try chia seeds as well. I now use them in all my smoothies. http://www.healthwarrior.com is a great place to pick them up.
Been drinking the green monster for breakfast and post workout for the past week. Delicious and packed! The cinnamon really pulls it together. Any other shake you can recommend?
Nice! Well, first you can check out my other video for the “Vitamin C Smoothie” recipe. One smoothie I make when I don’t have any dark green leafys around is my Chocolate Banana Protein shake. I’ll use Banana, Chia Seeds, Hemp Protein, Unsweetened Cocoa (cacao) Powder, , Dulse Falkes, Honey, Almond Milk, ice and water. Maybe I’ll throw in some blueberries or strawberries if I have any. Give that a shot!
Great shake! Was looking at some ‘greens’ which is a similiar powdered product, but really wanted to make something with whole foods and raw nutrients and now i’ve got it! My friends call it swamp juice.
Just wondering if you can give me some ideas for breakfast/lunch/dinner? Thanks.
The variations are endless, James. It depends on what you are into. One ingredient that I use for almost all my shakes is some type of protein which I take in the form of hemp (seeds or powder) and/or chia seeds. I will then mix it up with green veggies (if I’m in the mood) like kale, spinach, broccoli, etc. and fruit. Bananas are always good for adding sweetness. So are medjool dates. Here’s one I like that I’ve been having lately, my Chocolate Cherry Smoothie – Hemp protein, Chia seeds, Banana, Almond milk w/some water or ice, Unsweetened cocoa powder, frozen cherries, dulse flakes, cinnamon and raw honey. You’ll love that one.
Cheers for that! Will give me a basis to try some new stuff, and mix it up abit. Although I really meant foods for standard meals, or are you just a shake downing machine? haha.
Oh HAHA! Sorry about that! But there again, the possibilities are endless. Thy this – eat anything you like, as long as it doesn’t come in a package. Try that for just one meal. Get creative with spices. For breakfast I love making quinoa with jalapenos, onions, and curry powder. Slice some avocados on top and you’re good to go.
One question re: the smoothie – do you have anything against making a big batch of it and refrigerating it for future post-workouts? A little voice in my head is telling me that my wife will not enjoy the sound of the blender at 6:30 a.m.
I have nothing against it. I have read that it is ideal to consume the drink right after mixing though. But, when it comes down to having a smoothie that’s a little “off” or a cranky wife, I’ll take the smoothie. Good luck!
Hello! I’m beginning my training for various Tough Mudder/Spartan/Cross fit whatnots (and healthier life in general). Any particular BRAND of hemp protein you really dig? Same with Soy and/or Whey? Thanks!!
I usually just buy Nutiva brand. No particular reason, they are usually the easiest to find. I try to stay away from soy and whey products. Good luck with your training!
Hey mustacheman! Love your videos, training, and nutrition info. I do have a question on the use of hemp seeds though. I work a job that does random drug tests and was wondering if hemp seeds would show up if I started using them in shakes and on salads? I’ve read all kinds of info and articles on the positive effect of the seeds for the body and immune system but there are so many back and forth arguments about testing positive for THC and I was wondering if you had any opinions or maybe know for sure? Thanks for what you do to inspire the facially haired people of the world!
Hmmm, you know Ryan, that is something I have never considered. I really can’t give you a definitive answer. I would think it would be safe because you can buy hempseeds legally all over the place and there is no “intoxicating” effect after consumption. Not 100% on what your test would show though. Sorry pal.
Hi there Mr Mustache!!
I really wanna give your green shake recipe a try, however i’m having trouble finding Kale and dulse flakes i’m from Wales so perhaps their not as readily available, could you suggest a decent website that i could buy dulse flakes from? there are some dodgy ones i found :S
also would ordinary cabbage be just as good as kale? i wanna try and source the same ingredients if possible
Hey Nathan, a quick search and I found this on amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Dulse-Flakes-Certified-Vegetables-COhsawast/dp/B0019JRLBC). I’m sure you probably have health food stores in Wales so you should probably check there first before ordering. If you can’t find Kale you can just use any other available DARK leafy green. I would avoid cabbage because it’s not as nutrient dense. Swiss Chard, Collard Greens, Spinach, whatever you can find should work. Plus, if you don’t have a high speed blender you may want to use a strainer of some type. Good luck!
