So, here we are. You in front of your smart (or android/old school) device. Me in front of mine.
The sad realisation hit me tonight – I have run out of cereal, and my shake powder is yet to arrive. What to do, what to do? I do realise, in the world that we live in, this is a relatively inconsequential event. Solving my protein powder dilemma will not solve world peace, global poverty, or the possible extinction of some obscure gnat species.
But this is my blog. So I can allow myself the indulgence of assuming that the world has tilted slightly on its axis, purely because of my dilemma.
Now, in my absence from blogging, I have not completely absconded from the world of healthy eating principles. (This does not mean I have employed the principles, just that I have been researching them. And by that I mean buying books on super foods and the wonderful world of 'green' smoothies. Some of these books I've even flicked through.)
It seems everybody worth noting (in the healthy eating arena) has recently written a book on green smoothies. There are literally HUNDREDS of recipes for different concoctions, some with self-explanatory names and some with names only a mother could identify. But many of them agree that kale is the new black (or green, as the case may be). I have yet to try it – somehow the bunches of green, frilly leaves appear alarmingly large. And I wouldn't want to waste money buying said bunches, only to watch them wither and wilt in my 'drawer of good intentions' (the crisper). I guess I could always eat it…
Good news, tho'…… I have located enough chocolate protein powder to keep me going (albeit a little more chocolatey than I would like). Still, as my Great Grandmama used to say, “needs must when the devil drives”. So, my chocolatey, banana nut breakfast drink awaits me at the other end of my night's sleep.
