My Smoothies Over the Years

nutrition

As a therapist I am always helping others. But I discovered over time that If we don’t firstly look after ourselves then what good are we to anyone else. I have been drinking smoothies everyday for the last 4 years and I absolutely love them and they truly make you feel fabulous. It gets so addictive, trying out new recipes and seeing what sort of flavours you like. It has been trial and error over the years but that is the fun of it all. Although my kids may not agree. But they have been converted and are now making their own.

Some of my recipes.

Very basic just gives you an idea of what you can pop into your smoothie.

Also you don’t need to just stick to a breakfast smoothie, enjoy them throughout the day. I sometimes will pour mine into a big flask if I am out and about. Plus you don’t need to spend £££ on expensive equipment. When you are starting out just buy a blender and get going. Kids love smoothies and is a fabulous way of getting the goodness into them plus they can join in and make them on their own.

  • Frozen Mixed Berries/Bananas/Almond Milk/Dairy Free Yogurt/Honey/Oats.
  • Simple Nutastic Smoothie
    Banana/Hazelnuts and Almond Milk/Tsp Coconut Oil and some agave syrup.
  • Watermelon/Basil/Lime and Frozen Berries. This one surprised me as I don’t like watermelon..I have to admit..I wouldn’t choose to eat fruit. booo..I just wish I loved it but I just don’t…it looks and smells amazing…so I just smoothie mine so I gain all the benefits..Hopefully one day my taste buds will change and I will love to eat it all day long.
  • OK so I heard that chocolate three days before ur monthly cycle is due helps to alleviate symptoms..So Why not drink it. Raw Cacao/ Banana/Chia Seeds/ Dates and Ice was all I needed…oh and agave syrup…It needs to be sweet at these times.x

Pig brings lunch to his brother

happy times

I have been a vegetarian since I was about 10 years old. I just never really got the whole meat thing, never seemed right to me.  I am not a preachy veggie just a lover of animals and this next clip shows that animals not only feel pain but compassion for others too.  Animals no matter whether we class them as pets or meat are all the same, they all have feelings

Pig Brings Lunch To His Brother Who Has Trouble Walking

The Gentle Barn Tennessee shared this heartwarming video of a pig bringing lunch to his brother who can’t walk at the moment.

“When we take hay out to the pigs pasture the first thing Henry does is take some to his brother, Horton, who is not as mobile,” they wrote on Facebook. “Sharing food is true love, and Henry is the best guy!”

That’ll do pig. That’ll do.
