Welllll. All I have to feature today is my raw breakfast green smoothie. The recipe comes from Brendan Brazier’s book ‘Thrive: The Vegan Nutrition Guide to Optimal Performance in Sports and Life‘, a book I highly recommend. This recipe is the Kale Calcium Boost, but as I don’t like kale in my smoothies I used spinach leaves instead (and I’m saving my kale for something else). I also added some frozen banana because that’s my thing, I can’t seem to enjoy a smoothie unless it has a banana in it. Especially green smoothies. Aaanyway, this is a great tasting smoothie that had the banana, spinach, apple, date, ground flax, hemp protein and tahini, but did not taste tahini-y:
In the afternoon I had my leftovers from last night’s dinner at Magic Mint Cafe, roughly around the time I began to notice my sore eyes and scratchy throat and that blurgh feeling in my head and stomach that tells me I am coming down with something. So thanks to having no appetite, I didn’t have dinner, apart from a couple pieces of fruit, so there’s nothing to show on Day 2. BORING. I will have something tomorrow because I have defrosted an oil-free meal I made a fortnight ago and need to eat it tomorrow. So, sick or not, I will blog about this recipe tomorrow!
