I am not trying to be the self proclaiming gluten intolerant girl that wants the whole world to know she is a vegan or doesn’t eat gluten – because I am neither of those things. I am just a girl trying to figure out why my tummy is constantly bloated or rumbling (possibly last night’s pizza) and finding the best nutritions to tone this body up!
I love bread and carbs.
Yes I said it, judge! Continue reading “Living life Gluten free”
The benefits of beetroots are endless and I have a love/hate relationship with them. I use to hate them growing up, but as you get older your palate starts to appreciate different tastes. Take red wine for example, I could never understand why anyone would choose to drink it. Now I crave it in the evenings (although I try not to give in).
Well with beetroot I have days when I just can’t wait to devour it, then somedays I hate it. But I have found a way to keep it jazzy with this mixed berry beetroot smoothie.

I recently became a proud owner of the Breville smoothie maker and there is no turning back! Its only been a week of having smoothies for breakfast and I feel like all that delicious junk I had on holiday has been smoothied away. I can’t wait to see the results once I start having green smoothies too! I’ll share my recipes here.
What I’ve had the past week, and have yet to get sick of, is a banana berry smoothie. I also add in super foods to give me that extra nutrition and boost.
- One fully riped banana (it tastes even better when you let it slightly overripe)
- A handful of frozen berries ( you can easily find this in Sainsbury’s or freeze them yourself)
- 2 table spoons of Linwood’s flax, sunflower, pumpkin seeds & goji berries mixture(bought at Sainsbury’s)
- 1 Table spoon Whey protein powder
- Fill the bottle with ¾ almond milk or soy milk
Then blend and enjoy!
