A quick film in -9 conditions of me in my garden with my warm goji berry smoothie. ย The ingredients for the smoothie are below the video.

Goji berry smoothie ingredients –

2 x bananas ๐ŸŒ

1ย tbsp of lucuma powder

1 tbsp of chia seeds

1 tbsp walnuts

Blend the lot together with the desired liquids and serve warm (to serve warm keep the blender running for 3-5mins on high, I use a vitamix, link below)

If you can’t find goji berries click on the image below to take you to amazon where you can buy them in bulk and not pay the high supermarket prices.

Three grain porridge with maple syrup

….and as you can see lots and lots of maple syrup!…a woman needs sugar sometimes! ๐Ÿ˜Š ย Super easy to make, it’s just porridge oats cooked with almond milk in the normal way with a little salt, I used pink Himalayan salt but sea salt is good! ย Then I stir in a couple of tbsps of ground flaxseeds, chia seeds etc. ย You can basically add whatever additional seeds or grains you fancy, I sometimes cook my porridge with half organic oats and half quinoa flakes…quinoa is a really good protein source and has a variety of other health benefits also see the link below for some further information.
