Green smoothie - water, almond milk, fresh pineapple, 1 fresh pear, one fresh orange, a huge handful of spinach, one banana and a big nob of ginger.
Salad - iceberg, spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, a hard boiled egg, avocado, cress, spring onion, British garden peas, seeds, Cous Cous & vegan baked falafel (carrot and chickpea). Oh and a dollop of natural yoghurt with curry powder and lemon juice stirred in ☺️🙏🌻
I’ve finally gotten my coconut bowl (because it’s awesome, eco friendly and I’m basic like that) and I’ve had an amazing smoothie bowl for breakfast. I enjoy food better when it’s pretty, and I’m so excited for this bowl.
3 small frozen peaches
1 frozen banana
1 small fresh peach
A splash of almond milk
A splash of water
This one is packed with immune-boosting nutrients, and is easily made in a blender!
Ingredients (all organic):
1 piece raw ginger, peeled and diced
1 apple, sliced
1 cup celery, chopped
1 kiwi, peeled and halved
½ avocado, flesh only
3 (unpacked) cups kale or spinach leaves
Juice of ½ lemon
16 ounces pure water
To make in a blender:
Add water, ginger, celery, kiwi, lemon juice, and greens to blender. Pulse until greens are chopped (10-20 pulses). Start blending on low and add rest of ingredients, one at a time, increasing speed as needed until the highest speed setting and blend for 1-3 minutes until liquid. Pour into your favorite cup (finished it’s about 25 ounces).
Because this smoothie has healthy vegetarian fat and protein, it is a complete meal. I had it for lunch today and feel bright, energetic, and warm inside (thanks to that ginger)!
Y'all.. Stop buying these IG detox drinks, teas and smoothie recipes that “cleanse” your body for rapid weight loss . It doesn’t work. The weight you lose from those “detoxes” is simply water weight and you will gain it back within a few days as soon as you start eating solid foods again . Your liver, kidneys and colon cleanse and detox your body and filter out toxins and waste that you don’t need. NOTHING else . That’s why we piss and shit 😩 Anatomy is all we need for that . I see these IG girls really selling “detox” smoothie recipes for $30+ and people really buy this shit thinking they’re gonna lose fat . It’s false promotion . Educate yourselves and stop feeding people’s wallets who are misinformed and know nothing about the human body 😘 #science Lol
Green Smoothie! Might not look pretty, but this is definitely my new go-to breakfast!
Blend (I used a NutriBullet):
1 big handful of de-stemmed kale 1 big handful of spinach A few raspberries and blackberries Scoop of protein powder (I used Quest) Scoop of Light Activia Greek yogurt Splash of heavy cream 3 ice cubes 1 tsp chia seeds &/or hemp seeds Unsweetened coconut milk
To my surprise, this tastes NOTHING like spinach or kale, is very creamy, doesn’t need any added sweetener, and is filled with protein, healthy fats, and Omega3’s! Perfect way to start your day!
