a superfood smoothie to see you through the winter

7th December 2015
The fluffy slippers are out and the heating is on which means Winter has arrived and we are only a sneeze away from the dreaded common cold. In this day and age we don’t even have time to sit down let alone take a week off work. One of the most important things you can do is fuel yourself with the right nutrients to protect yourself during the colder months and my favourite way of getting a big shot of goodness has always been smoothies. As a child I was never big on fruit and veg so this has become the easiest process for me to cram as much goodness into me enjoyably. The Key ingredients for this smoothie are quinoa which is high in protein, antioxidants, and amino acids to name a few. Activia, whilst also adding a delicious flavour to the smoothie is also full of probiotic bacteria to boost your immune system and protect your body against colds and germs  and finally blueberries, another antioxidant powerhouse containing up to 24% of your recommended daily amount of vitamin C. I love starting my day with smoothies especially ice cold ones to wake you up like a freezing shower but instead backed with lots of goodness so at the moment I’m shoving all of this in my Nutribullet first thing in the morning.

The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱

Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
Ad a successful day at the races with @boodles wearing my some of my own pieces from their incredible collections, mixed in with my favourite pieces from their Secret Garden collection. This bracelet is showstopping!
