Choc Green Power Smoothie

One of my favourite breakfasts, guys. It doesn't look super-pretty because I can't be stuffed chucking a garnish on top, but hey: tasty and healthy and BIG! Excellent breakfasting... But I can be stuffed chucking it through a filter on my smartphone in an attempt to pretty it up for this blog... Sorry about that. HEARTS.

Choc Green Power Smoothie

4 cups water
6 bananas
handful pitted dates
tablespoon flaxseed
3 tablespoons soaked/sprouted buckwheat
dash vanilla (extract or liquid stevia)
stalk off a bunch of broccoli
2 big handfuls of kale
4-6 tablespoons carob or cacao (or a mix of the two)
2 tsp maca powder
half tsp ground cinnamon

Blend, adding more water or ice as necessary. If you don't have a high-speed blender, blend the water, dates, flaxseed, buckwheat, broccoli, and kale before adding the other ingredients. Makes 1-2 large servings.

Lions and tigers and chai, oh my!

This duck cup belonged to my grandpa, made in Korea. It belongs to a set of mugs with different birds on each - I've not seen too many like it. There's one birdy mug missing

Hit The Road, Jackfruit Green Smoothie - What I Ate Wednesday!

Caught a minor lurgy from Huz's rage-infected office drone colleagues and/or the rampaging childerbeasts at the park (why won't people quarantine their sick kids/let them rest at home a little? blah!), so haven't updated for a couple of MoFoing days because I've been busy behaving like a big cranky obnoxious frustrated toddler.

My sincere apologies to planet Earth and all its inhabitants. I'm not a good patient because I've become rather unfamiliar with illness even if it's a minor cold that only lasts a few days instead of the few weeks that I used to endure pregan: MAGIC POWERS! But even vegan superheroines aren't entirely impervious to Coronavirus.

So. What have I been eating? Or, rather: what have I remembered to photograph while I'm eating? That won't tax me too much, let's go with some Hipstergrams.

Left: cacao-carob banana/dates/nuts smoothie; moong dahl; let's get ready to peach crummmmble.
