Sounds like a good shake Susan, I'm going to try almond milk, hemp heart and fruit, I haven't tried to blend hemp heart, but I bet that helps make it creamy and it is a good source of protein. And are you in Calgary Ron? I'll give you a half cont...

What do you recommend to overcome the feeling of having weak, wobbly, jelly-like legs as you cycle uphill? They feel like there's nothing left in them to push, but once back on the flat it's ok. Do I need to just build up muscle in my legs, or, pa...
