SUPERBERRY BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE

Now it may be cold and dreary outside, but that doesn’t mean our food has to be right? Yes that’s exactly what I thought, so I created this wonderfully vibrant smoothie bowl for breakfast. Its thick and creamy and packs a powerful punch thanks to the superberry powder I added in the form of Lingonberry powder (see my product review here) I then topped it with pomegranate seeds, blueberries and bee pollen which when mixed together made for the tastiest super berry smoothie. Here is the recipe;

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp of yoghurt – I use coyo, but Greek yoghurt works just as well
  • 1 tsp of superfood berry powder- I used Lingonberry powder for this bowl 🙂
  • 1 banana
  • 2 handful of berries- strawberries and raspberries
  • A splash of coconut water
  • 1or 2 big handfuls of spinach
  • 1/2 avocado- great for glowing skin
  • Toppings- I used blueberries, pomegranate seeds and bee pollen for an added superfood nutritional hit!

Instructions

  • Simply blend all ingredients apart from the toppings
  • Once a think creamy mixture has formed top the bowl how you like
  • Then stir and enjoy x

EATING WELL MADE EASY COURTESY OF POTAGE

I was recently introduced to a fantastic little company called Potage which is a healthy food delivery service who pride themselves on their freshly prepared 100% organic pots of goodness delivered to your door.

Now as a busy working Londoner time is of the essence and eating healthy is a priority so a company like Potage is extremely appealing. I am lucky enough to be able to prepare my lunches most days however there are some days where this just isn’t possible and this is when a company like Potage comes to the rescue with their pots of tasty yet healthy meals and snacks. I love the idea of healthy food deliveries especially for those of us who are time poor, there seems to be an uprise in the amount of companies offering healthy food delivery services either to your door or you workplace which just takes all the hassle out of lunch prep and eating tasty nutritious meals.

Potage has a great daily menu to choose from, I mean its almost too good which makes choosing your food a pretty hard decision but in the end I went for the Roast Aubergine, Sweet Potato & Feta pot, a raw pot, a pesto pot and I will admit it I got the brownie too (everyone’s allowed to treat themselves once in a while!) and it was honestly all delicious, the Roast Aubergine, Sweet Potato & Feta pot was my favourite it tasted amazing. I got a lot of jealous looks in the office when I got my food delivered (hand delivered to me may I add by a lovely friendly young girl) I felt well and truly spoilt.

What’s great about companies like Potage is that it makes healthy eating seem less of a hassle/less daunting for people with extremely busy lives who just don’t have time to prep healthy lunches. Many people just don’t know where to start and just run to the nearest Pret or Tesco for a sandwich at lunch out of habit, but lunch doesn’t need to be boring which is where companies like Potage can help. And the food may I add is delicious and so fresh, so if your struggling to eat well, or just fancy a change from your usual lunches and are tempted by healthy fresh lunches delivered to your desk then give Potage a try 🙂
