Green smoothies 22 days in.

I thought I would give you a little update on the green smoothie challenge.

We are 22 days in and so far both of us have only missed two days each. Its a fact that already we miss them when we don’t have them.

Do we feel better and are healthier. Well hubby had to have a course of antibiotics for a chest infection last week, but I think that had been rumbling along since before we started the smoothies. And although I have had and still have a slight infection in my chest, (green gunk of another variety) I have been able to stave it off, so maybe, just maybe it has done some good.

I have read on many green smoothie blogs that increasing the green leafy matter in your diet actually increases your desire for them. I have noticed this, hubby often see’s a slightly deranged woman walking down the plot with a few green leaves clutched in her outstretched hand saying “taste This, its fabulous” I especially like the Mizuna that I am growing it really has such a beautiful spicy, peppery yet delicate flavour. Its yummy. And when I am not grazing at the plot I am wandering around the aisles of the fruit and vegetables of our local supermarket looking at the freshness of the leaves and fruits whilst conjuring up smoothie recipes.

The one thing I have noticed is that the skin on my face has become beautifully soft. Don’t get me wrong I still have the broken thread veins inherent in a woman that has walked dogs in harsh weather most of her life, likes a glass of wine (when she can get away with it) and works down a plot in all types of weather. But that aside my skin is so soft, so there is something going on.

I didn’t really do much of anything this weekend due to the heat. I don’t do well in the heat. So I thought I would share with you the extra gift that Amelia nearly had packaged up.

He was quite keen on the idea.

Do you think he would have got through customs?

    I don't think he'd have made it through customs but I would have quite happily had him!!We've always had a lot of animals and always taken good care care of them (ask our vet!!)and at one time had eight cats along with our dogs and birds, everyone was spayed or neutered and in good health.We, of course, were and are animal poor!! They cost a lot to feed and as I said, vet bills so when our last cat died a couple of years ago we said no more and as yet we haven't but I'm missing having cats around. They were all strays or rescued and I'm trying to convince my hubby that we need more cats but he's not budging on that one but I'm working on it. The only thing is I was working then but now there's only one income so I have to give a bit on the animal front.
