So the world didn’t end in fire or ice. On we go for the next 5,125 years. In comparison here is my minuscule week in Instagram pics.

I recently wrote about my new breakfast routine of a green smoothie (and my fancypants new Vitamix).
I am seriously obsessed with the green smoothie revolution; My skin looks great, my insides function like a well oiled machine and it’s a fast way to have brekkie! So I thought I’d share a few combinations if you get the urge to go green.
The simple rules are
use a Vitamix (if possible, I know they’re expensive) because it turns everything to the smoothest liquid which is the reason it goes down easy
the foundation is anything green & leafy. preferably kale but you can use cavolo nero, spinach, silverbeet or lettuce
used unwaxed fruit
cut off any citrus peel
I need to buy some flaxseed or chia seed to add into the mix!
ginger apple rockmelon water
kale celery baby spinach pear orange coconut water ice
We’ve long been dreaming of this kitchen blender beauty; it takes blending to a whole new level and to blend we will!
Green smoothies (aka kale shake) are an upper to a healthy fit lifestyle; its a fantastic way to kick off your day as your body is getting a jolt of nutrients and it’s amazing for your digestive system! You have this first thing in the morning (although I work out first on an empty tummy and then do the smoothie).
