still loving my local green grocers parkway greens – its stocking even more types of vegetables, so we are having fun experimenting at home. i am still throwing everything into a smoothie most mornings, which means that there is never any waste in the house – if vegetables are looking a bit over their best or there is just a few bits left, they get thrown into the blender along with the kale, ginger, raw cacao, seeds, almond milk and banana. I somehow lost a lot of weight over the summer – I think it was the anxiety of what had been going on, so now I also add a heaped spoonful of protein powder – I like the ones by pulsin, which are rich in iron or amino acids and high in protein, but don’t taste too strong either. somehow I feel that even if I am rushing in the morning, drinking this concoction sets me up for the day – with a nutriblend, they give you a cap, so that you can carry it out on your way to work, or even make it the night before ready to grab on your way out.
i bought these amazing colourful chard and carrots there this week.
