Health Kick Cocktail

If like me you have over indulged over Christmas and are craving some goodness, try this lovely Health Kick Cocktail to help get you back on the straight and narrow:

This recipe will serve 1
You will need:

  • 1/2 a fresh pineapple
  • 1 medium avocado
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup of orange juice
  • drizzle of honey to taste
Chop the pineapple, and then peel and slice the avocado (remove the stone)
Throw everything into a blender and blitz until smooth
That's it. Easy peasy, ready in 5 minutes and delicious. You can't really taste the avocado but it does give it a smooth creamy texture and is full of goodness. Enjoy!

Life Lately

One of the things I love about this time of year is the opportunity to hibernate.  Sometimes I just love shutting out the rest of the world and getting some me time, which is exactly what I did last weekend. 

To thoroughly enjoy a lazy day it's important to be prepared. Get all necessary supplies (food/books/wine) in advance so you don't have to leave the house.

 I also decided to indulge in a bit of home cooking...

Salmon Pasta

Including a roast

And the most enjoyable part. A boiling hot bubble bath complete with almost an entire box of bath salts. Bliss
