My 30 (or more!) days challenges

Breakfast – Day 37


When I moved in to my current flat, I was a bit disappointed that it didn’t have a balcony, but it wasn’t an issue, as, I thought, the London weather wouldn’t allow me to use the balcony too much anyway!

Today the weather is absolutely splendid, and I realised that I could actually create a mock balcony if I open my three bay windows. And I’m indulging in an unbelievably huge breakfast: croissant, pain au chocolat, muesli with blueberries, assorted fruits, hard-boiled egg, yoghurt, jam, Nutella, orange juice, coffee – I definitely feel as if I’m at a luxury resort! Life is good 🙂 IMG_8801

Smoothies – Day 8 – Tropical Fruity


I got myself 2 packs of Bioglan Superfoods Supergreens powder, and today I want to try the one with tropical flavour, so I am making a smoothie with tropical fruits. Of course, the powder is optional, the smoothie is going to taste great even without it!

Here is what I use:

  • Half cup coconut water
  • 2 teaspoons Bioglan Superfoods Supergreens 81 Vital Ingredients Powder with tropical flavour
  • One small banana
  • A quarter of a small watermelon
  • 75g strawberries
  • 75g blueberries
  • One small mango fruit
  • Half green Granny Smith apple
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds

The powder does give my smoothie a great taste, but also a rather nasty colour…

Smoothies – Day 1- Watermelon and Raspberry


I’m starting the 30 Smoothies challenge with this simple yet delicious Watermelon & Raspberry smoothie. To make it I chop up and de-seed 1-1.5 cups of watermelon and freeze it for an hour, along with half a cup of raspberries.

Once frozen, I just pop the watermelon and the raspberries in the blender. You may also wish to add a little bit of watermelon juice, or coconut water, or plain water (go easy with the water though, otherwise your drink will taste somewhat bland) if the mixture is too thick. By freezing the ingredients I obtain a nice slushy texture, but if you actually want it to be a proper smoothie rather than a slushie, just skip the freezing part!
