CLEAN AND GREEN

Good morning all

I’m absolutely loving our extra long weekend here in Melbourne. It’s going to be a stinker today so we’ve decided to make the most of it at the beach. Kicking off with breakfast, I made a gorgeous green smoothie for the family. It was so good my almost 2 year old kept asking for a top up. Now that’s what you want.

How?

2. Pulse a few times
3. Blend until smooth

Have a great day all.

GREEN JUICING

GREEN JUICE

Good morning lovelies

Like many others I have read about the health benefits of green juicing. So since my indulgences over our long weekend has been quite taxing on my body, I thought it was finally time to begin this daily juicing ritual.

Due to sheer laziness (hate cleaning) I have avoided using this juicer that I was gifted to me well over 2 years ago. You are required to cut you fruits and vegies in narrow pieces and then washing the juicer itself is a bitch. I find the preparation and cleaning so much easier with a blender.

That said it’s manageable if you prepare your fruits and vegetables in advance plus the feel good factor once you’ve enjoyed your drink makes it all the worth while. The juice pulp can also be used in your sald mix which is exactly what I will be doing today. Best part is- it’s already all chopped up.

So whats in this green juice
2 celery stalks (with leaves on)
1 big handful of spinach
2 golden kiwifruits (skin on)
2 pink lady apples (skin on)
1 pear (skin on)

Its fresh, delicious and goes down easy. My little tot enjoyed some too.

Makes 2 glasses and its recommended to consume on the day for maximum benefits.

Thanks for reading and I hope this post has inspired you to begin juicing.

GOOD MORNING SMOOTHIE

Smoothylicious

Hello and good morning lovelies

Hubby and I started this morning with what I call breakfast in a cup. There are so many smoothie and juice variations out there that are not only delicious but also simple to make. All you need is your desired ingredients and a blender.

Smoothies aren’t just about fruit either, you can add your greens in just as I have done with this one.  The best part about making your own at home is that you have prepared it yourself so you know exactly what is in it.

Ingredients
Organic frozen berries
Banana
Spinach
Organic soy milk
Organic flax meal
Organic agave nectar
Passionfruit from the garden

Have a lovely day everyone. Since I get an extra day off for the Easter break I know I will. x
