Count Down to Christmas

The streets are sparkling, the shops are bursting at the seams, parties are looming and the likelihood of over-indulgence is fairly high! Yes, it's December time once again and before we know it, Santa will have been and gone, leaving in his wake many tired, mince-pie-stuffed, Christmas-hat-wearing earthlings looking for a sense of rejuvenation as the new year unfolds.

So, amidst all these festivities this month, I'm going to post a few tips to help keep those rejuvenation needs to a minimum.

First up, make yourself a smoothie for breakfast or take one in to work as a decent snack. This is a great way of getting in tons of vitamins, minerals, essential fats and protein and so easy! Just chuck everything into a blender and whizz for 30 secondsish.

Possible ingredient- you don't have to have all of these - choose as you like but include nut butter or seeds for protein.

Coconut or almond milk (drinking one not cooking one) pumpkin seeds spoonful of nut butter (almond, cashew) frozen cherries heaped tsp barleygrass or wheatgrass powder a few chunks frozen pineapple tsp cinnamon tsp dark chocolate powder.

Drink immediately or take with you. Benefits of ingredients to follow!
