Healthy banana and chocolate smoothie

I bought some raw cacao nibs as part of the health odyssey that I am on currently and when I tasted them I was a bit disappointed as, on their own, they taste so bitter and, well, not very nice! I was a bit annoyed as they cost £9 for a big ol' tub! They are packed with antioxidants so I wanted to make the most of them...

Kale, pea, avocado and brazil nut pasta

The guys at Dr Oetker Ristorante Pizzas did something pretty awesome in March: they created a pizzeria made out of ice outside of the Liverpool Street tube station in central London. Bit crazy, I know. They did it as part of their #freshnessfrozen campaign, which aims to highlight that frozen food is a healthy choice, as freezing veggies ensures they don't deteriorate, so you're getting all the nutrients when you eat them.

Healthy carrot and poppy seed loaf

I am really enjoying being super healthy at the minute. Now that I have more childcare I have joined a gym, I also bought a Nutribullet and I'm having a 'blast' with it (ooooh dear - in joke for Nutribullet owners, sorry!). I swear starting each day with a veg and fruit packed smoothie is making me feel motivated to exercise and generally eat really well for the rest of the day.

'Tropical' breakfast smoothie

I don't have a smoothie on here yet, which is ridiculous really, especially as I am really, seriously getting into them right now! In fact, today I officially got serious about them, as my Nutribullet Pro arrived! They are supposed to be great for whizzing up tricky things like kale and so on, but this smoothie is easy in any blender as the ingredients are all things that are soft and go very smooth and creamy.

Cornflake chicken nuggets with sweet potato chips

I hope you don't mind if I wish my blog a happy 3rd birthday! Well, it was yesterday but I know she (yes, she is a girl, didn't you realise?) won't mind. She's cool like that. I would've posted yesterday but I was out all day having fun - well, kind of...

I met my best friend and her gorgeous baby at Lyme Park where they have a brilliant adventure playground. It was so lovely... until I lost my nearly 5 year old! Longest 20 minutes of my life. We were ready to go, so my friend and I said our goodbyes and then I turned to get my son - my 2 1/2 year old was with me - and he was just gone.
