  • I've been using Hemp Protien as a non-workout protein powder.Hemp has a good balance of omega-3's to omega-6's, is high in insoluable fibre and has an almost complete amino profile. Another reason you might want to look at hemp is if you're trying to reduce the amount of bloating caused by dairy based protein powders. I'm not much of a shake person, much prefering whole foods as I find shakes don't really fill me up. This is an exception. Must be all that fibre in the hemp! In addition to the hemp protein I've used rice protein. Again, this is a easily digestable plant protein and a great choice for those with problems digesting dairy.
