Carrot and Berry Protein Smoothie

What's a great way to get in some fruit and vegetables first thing in the morning? Smoothies! If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I love a good smoothie. It may be because breakfast is my favourite meal of the day so I always go all out, if you have a smile so early in the morning, you're likely to have a good day right? University has taken over my life so I'm just quickly popping by to share one of my favourite smoothies, this carrot and berry protein smoothie. Want to know more, read on.

*Flour-less Banana and Cinnamon Loaf

Flour-less she says? Does that shock you, you heard right. This loaf contains no flour thanks to good ol' Oats and an imagination. I woke up on Saturday morning with the urge to bake and so I made my way downstairs to do just that. To my surprise, I was out of both Almond and buckwheat flour but I had Oats. See, my cupboards are full of Oats because they make a great breakfast especially during the winter months. I then went ahead to grab a packet of Oats which I blended into a flour consistency. That's how this little number came about, a good one at that. This flour-less banana and Cinnamon Loaf presented the perfect opportunity to incorporate some of Whitworths seeds. Thank you to the team at Whitworths for gifting me with their new range of seeds, I am seed obsessed after all.

So why Whitworths Seeds? I have a few reasons for you, they come in a convenient seal-able pouch which is handy because seeds can be a nightmare when they spill everywhere. This makes them easy to use and store. So, why not let your creativity come to life.. #Simplyadd. This recipe could be a good place to start, you never know, you just might love it.

Fruit topped Rye Bread with Almond butter

Apologies for being M.I.A the last few weeks, it seems being a student Dietitian is a full time job. You'll be pleased to know however that though it's a tad difficult, I'm thoroughly enjoying the course. This year consists of Principles of Dietetics, Specialist Dietetics, Life Span Nutrition etc, basically all the good stuff so I'm super excited and focused. I spend most of my days  buried under a pile of books, reading through hundreds of journals and sipping on green tea. Ahh, welcome to the life of a Student Dietitian! That doesn't mean I've stopped cooking up a storm and sharing recipes. There's nothing quite like starting the day with a tasty almond butter open sandwich. Now that I've got your attention, let's get right to it.

*Stur Water Enhancers Review

Do you drink enough? I most certainly know I should but unfornately I don't and well, that's where Stur comes in. Thank you to the lovely team at Stur for gifting me with some of their water enhancers. So, what is Stur? It is a family run company which was initially created by the owner for his pregnant wife in a bid to ensure that she drank more water. I mean, does it get any sweeter than this? They produce both satchet and liquid water enhancers. What do you do with them, simply stir into water and drink away. Their enhancers are natural fruit and tea flavours high in Vitamin C which is an antioxidant and plays a role in Carnitine and Collagen synthesis. No GMOs, naturally flavoured and naturally sweetened; drinking a glass of water has never been so exciting.
