My Favourite Smoothie

Christmas 2015 I received the wonderful gift of a NutriBullet. The juicing / smoothie hype / trend was real back then and after being ill, I thought it’d be a good way of managing to squeeze some more calories, fruit and veg etc.

In general I’ve heard lots of advice and info given from trainers about how bad it is to drink your calories. Over all though, the truth is, as long your consuming at a calorie deficit, no matter their form, you’re going to lose weight.

Recently as I’ve over hauled my diet, I’ve re discovered my love for smoothies and my faithful NutriBullet. So today I’m going to a favourite recipe combination that I’ve been loving lately.

250 – 300ml Almond Milk

1 Medium Banana

40g Peanut Butter

1 Tablespoon Cacao Powder

This came to 446 calories.

Admittedly that’s a high calorie smoothie. Realistically though I’d never drink a glass of milk or eat a banana so it helps to get init my diet some vital goodness it’d otherwise miss out on.

It’s also super filling. ( I don’t tend to drink mine all in one go)

Top tip: Be careful with nut butters. It’s super easy to under estimate exactly how much your really consuming. Lots of people think they’re being healthy adding a tablespoon of peanut butter, weigh it out to avoid your smoothie yumminess causing weight gain.

January Favourites Including Baby Cuteness

Strong language because I’m a terrible influence.

I’ve not done a monthly favourites post ever, on the blog. Mainly because it’s hardly original content and secondly it’s just not a subject that really interested me before. I like to give at least somewhat of a flying fuck about what I write.

Insert some lame paragraph about some new year new me bullshit here….

Let’s give it a go then..

Without a shadow of a doubt my absolute favourite thing of this month, (If my nephew should ever read this, I apologise for calling you a thing), was the arrival of this bundle of baby cuteness 😍😍. I love being an auntie. A niece and five nephews later, a new arrival and the prospect of baby cuddles is still something I look forward too. Being an auntie is essentially getting all the good parts and then getting to return them when they wanna start acting like little shitbags.

Again… THE CUTENESS OFF IT ALL

A second favourite is also included in the above picture and it’s the Jack Wills Hoodie I’m wearing.

Unfortunately the exact one is sold out on the Jack Wills website so here’s a pic of a lovely looking model wearing one similar.. You can check out all of their hoodies / sweatshirts here. Yes they’re a little pricey but they’re super well made, as well as lovely and comfy.

On the subject of keeping warm, it’s been soooo freaking cold here, I can’t even… Recently I’ve been heading to bed with a hot water bottle, well kinda. The Noozie is basically a usb rechargeable heat pack. No water required. It remains hot for up five hours and heats up really quick in the first place. Great for the colder weather AND providing some much needed chronic pain / period pain relief.

New year, a new organised you? I dunno, but what I do know is that I’ve been loving using the following journals / bullet books.. My mind certainly feels less chaotic and my mental health has greatly appreciated the daily prompts that each book provides. After all it’s not always easy to know what exactly to write.

Finally on this list of random favourites of the month is….wait for it….BANANAS !! You’re probably reading this thinking “what the fuck?” I don’t care. I’ve recently fallen in love with them again and surely a love of fruit can’t really be a bad thing.

Enjoy a picture of me adding sliced banana on top of peanut butter on toast.

Let me know what you thought of this favourites post. I might just do another in February.

Oh my god !! I just realised that as a blogger I managed to do a favourites post without mentions of anything beauty or hair related.

Original content y’all !!
