We went to the Syon Food Festival yesterday and although delicious, the majority of the food was not clean so today I want to have a bit of a kick restart. We got up late and had a simple smoothie with some added natural nutritional additions:
- Natural yoghurt
- Frozen berries
- Ripe pear
- Milled hemp seeds
- Milled bee pollen
- Flax seeds with goji berries and sunflower seeds
Bee pollen is a great addition to smoothies and salads, I got mine from a local health food shop but you can order it online too. Its a complete food and contains proteins, vitamins, minerals, lipids and carbohydrates.
Hemp seeds are a really good source of essential fatty acids including Omega 3, 6 and GLA, it’s a more digestible protein than meat and is rich in Vitamin E.
For the rest of the day I’m going to snack on fruit and nuts and lunch today will be oven roasted salmon fillets with Mediterranean vegetables and some fresh zingy lemon and basil new potatoes.
I love Sunday’s, they’re my favourite day. We try not to plan much and just spend the day pottering, shopping or walking the dog.
One thing I’ve started to enjoy doing is prepping a few food bits to make my life easier during the week.
Depending on my food menu for the week, I will make my own breakfast cereal, blitz up some fresh nut butter or make some sauces for dinners, such as fresh, Parmesan-free pesto. I’ll blog recipes for all of these today/tomorrow for you.
