Now that I’m back from holidays and settling into routine I’ve started to get back into healthy eating. I need to drop a few kg to fit back into last Summers clothes :-). As part of my recommitment to healthy eating I’ve been trying to make some new things. Just this week I have made a green smoothie and breakfast cookie (thanks Alison – loved it). Actually Alison has been a big inspiration for me – I also made the banana whip I saw on her blog and she reminded me of yogadownload.com. I made some low fat/sugar choc muffin – but no-one really liked them. I also made a pumpkin & red lentil lasagne – which was yummy, and I’ve been experimenting with food a lot more. The only downside of healthy eating – a VERY FULL fridge.
I’m really quite rapt with my green smoothie so I thought I’d put a quick video together for you guys. I really am amazed at how nice they are – even Kevin like it.
My recipe is :
1/2 cup organic low-fat milk
Large handful spinach
1/2 Tbs ground flaxseeds
1 Tbs unflavoured protein powder
Approx. 1/2 mango
** If you make it, or another version, please let me know what you think. So good – gives you a serve of fruit, veg, diary and protein!!
A lot of people add banana, I’m thinking of trying tinned peaches & pineapple.
