In my Nurturing Thursday post last week I wrote about some of the things that I’d like to see happen in 2014.
I didn’t mention the changes I plan to make to my diet ~ too many tasty treats left over from Christmas! Not that I’m aiming to lose weight ~ I haven’t owned bathroom scales for nearly 20 years ~ but I’d like to move towards eating more healthily and naturally. I’m not a junk~food~junkie by any means but there’s definitely room for improvement, especially after such an enjoyable festive season. I’m guessing I’m not alone here 😉
Although I’m a fan of fruit and vegetable juices, commercially prepared ones can prove expensive or contain unwanted sugar and chemical preservatives. I’d much rather prepare my own but my last juicer left me with messy pulp and was laborious to clean. So, when I found this simple blender on sale at half price this week, I snapped it up.
This is my first attempt ~ a melon, strawberry and banana smoothie, made with coconut milk. It was yummy and surprisingly filling. Maybe I will end up slimmer after all! 😉
