So this is a bit of a different post.
I'm going to start doing more lifestyle/health/ fitness posts as its been a big part of my life for the past couple of years.
I thought i'd start with a guide to some of my favorite juice recipes as well as a intro to my new favourite thing of detox tea!
I find Banana/ Kale green juice is great for a lunchtime snack as its very filling.
- 1 medium banana
- 1 cup chopped kale
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon of Flax seeds
I did a take on my fave Apple, Kale and Lime drink at Waitrose
- 1 Apple
- 1 Cup of kale
- A dash of lime
- 2 medium apple, cored and roughly chopped (peeled if not using a high-powered blender)
- 5 1/4-inch slices cucumber (skin removed if waxy)
- Juice of half a lemon
- *add ginger for a greater taste
This is my favorite breakfast smoothie
- 2 bananas
- 1 teaspoon of Meridian peanut butter
- 1 cup of Almond Milk
- a dash of cinnamon
I also love avocado in smoothies! Try this recipe:
- 1 cup cold water
- 1 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
- ½ medium avocado (50 grams), pitted, flesh scooped out
- 1 cup frozen mango cubes
- 1 pitted medjool date
- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
At the end of last year I wanted to give detox tea a go and now I am obsessed!
I started Nudey Tea* 14 day teatox and cannot talk more highly of it! It tastes yummy, like a mixture of green tea/ginger, which is perfect for this cold winter weather.
However, the best thing is how it make you feel! Now i had read many reviews about different tea detox's and was like 'really? can it make you feel that good?' but it really does! By drinking to tea i felt cleansed and had more natural energy rather than the caffeine high's and low's i usually get when drinking coffee. The detoxing qualities also means one cup a day keeps the bloat away. I am starting the gym in a few weeks, ah first time im ever signed up to one (eek) im excited to see the results when im working out of drinking my Nudey Tea!
