Sunday 10th February
The fruit bowl & vege bin is looking a bit grim by the end of the weekend so that meant a very green, lean (bitter) smoothie this morning, I didn’t mind but the kids (4 & 6) gave it the thumbs down despite wanting to like it! Smelt a bit too close to lawn mower clippings for their liking!
Key take out tho, is having a well stocked kitchen is essential for eating healthy. It allows you to easily chop & change what you ‘toss’ together based on how much time you have, what you feel like & who is around.
Monday is my shopping day to stock the fridge ( 4 ‘bins’) & fruit bowls (5 baskets) , sometimes we visit the organic markets but it is not a weekend routine as we like to have a bit of spontaneity & variety in what we do.
I skipped ‘normal’ lunch again today – it seems that I have quite a different eating pattern on the weekend.
- 1 slice Fruit & nut toast with “Woman’s Balance’ herbal tea in bed (reading books to kids)
10.30am (hubby back from paddling)
- Muesli + yoghurt + half mango
- Green smoothie: kale, baby spinach, cucumber, parsley, chia seeds, flax seed oil.
- Wholemeal spaghetti, DYI walnut, basil & rocket pesto + roasted pumpkin tossed on top.
Looking forward to cooking with animal protein this week …bring on the seafood & chicken.
Have a fabulous week & let me know if there is anything you’d like me to cover.
PS – seriously not missing wine….now that I have the “Traditional Chinese Medicine’ Organic Tonic Teas.
PPS- this pic was yesterday’s smoothie, did not feel like taking many today.
