Go green for goodness sake

One of my new favorite loves are green smoothies. I know, they have been around for ages, surely i’m on the bandwagon already? Well, yes and no. I had tried them a long time ago, but found them not very tasty. Its a hard thing to get right, especially if you are adding super foods like spirulina and chorella to your smoothie. They usually taste like a mix of grass and green algae. Not the nicest way to start your day.

Luckily, I found the Green Smoothie co. They have already done the hard work of formulating the perfect balance of super foods to add into your smoothie. They have created tiny single serves of super foods, in these gorgeous little easy travel packets. And its so easy to just grab one, add a few pieces of fruit and veggies, add your liquid, whizz up, and hey presto! You have a healthy, nutritious, fun smoothie to start your morning, or as a perfect snack during the day!

And on the front of tastiness-they have got it 100% perfect! I haven’t tried all their flavors, but the green is good is amazing. I never thought I would say that I actually LIKE green smoothies. The Green Smoothie Co have also made them very affordable, at $15 for a 5 pack. That’s less than the price you would pay for a few smoothies out on the run, or a few coffee’s.

Using the ‘green is good’ sachet, I created this amazing ‘Juicie’ a hybrid green juice/green smoothie:

Ingredients:
2 Apples
1 small cucumber
1/2 head kale
1 lime
1 Handful spinach
1/2 cup grapes
1 green is good sachet

Juice the apples, cucumber, kale and lime. Then add juice to blender, as well as remainder of ingredients. Blend until combined and enjoy!

This green juicie has a HUGE amount of nutrients in it-lots of vitamin c, iron, antioxidants and the list goes on!

And, because I would LOVE you guys to be able to try their fabulous products, the gorgeous team over at the Green Smoothie Co have generously donated some to give away!

Ultimate summer shopping list

Ever wondered what a healthy pantry looks like? And what exactly should you put on your shopping list? I really pride myself on having a healthy trolley at the end of my grocery shop, so much so that I get weird looks at the 3 bunches of kale, and huge pile of lettuce. So, here is my ultimate summer shopping list!

The reason I have named it ‘summer’ shopping list, is because my diet changes with the seasons. And of course, so does the food that available. In summer my diet is full of lots of lovely salads and fruit, whereas in winter its more hearty soups, stews and root vegetables.

Feel free to download, print and take with you shopping to get inspired to start eating healthy!

Valentines day Giveaway: Pana Chocolate

A little while ago I did a post on the benefits of raw cacao, and i’m very happy to say the amazing guys at Pana Chocolate have donated an amazing Valentines day gift box full of Pana Chocolate for me to give away!

Pana Chocolates motto is “love your insides. Love the earth” which I think is just so gorgeous, and it really resonates with my own values. The team is a group of health conscious individuals, who had a vision of an organic, raw and great tasting chocolate, which I think they have totally nailed! The Pana Chocolate range are lovingly prepared, and have a rich delicious texture that is also healthy. What I love about them, is they make chocolate that caters to so many different dietary requirements, so everyone can enjoy it!

The Pana Chocolate range is handmade in Aus, and they use all natural ingredients, no preservatives and low GI natural sweetener. Pana Chocolate also made sure that their chocolate was low GI, vegan, gluten free, and contains no dairy or soy. They are certified organic, as well as being a member of the vegan society.

Another great reason to LOVE Pana Chocolate is the fact that they are raw. Cacao processed at high temperatures (as is common in most chocolate) loses its nutrient value and when ingested can cause a build up of acid in the body. Pana Chocolate is prepared using consistently low temperature to produce a non- acidic chocolate that retains its naturally occurring nutrients and antioxidants. By choosing raw chocolate you are getting all of the benefits of the cacao bean – the most antioxidant rich food source known.

Their range includes raw cacao, orange, coconut and goji, fig and wild orange, rose, sour cherry and vanilla, cinnamon, nuts, and mint. My personal favourite is the sour cherry and vanilla! 

So with that, I can’t wait for someone to win this great gift box. 

All you need to do, is leave a comment at the bottom of this blog post saying what your favourite valentines day experience was. 

 

*giveaway only open to residents of Australia and New Zealand. 

Good luck!
