My five-a-day all too easily becomes five biscuits a day! Sound familiar?
But the thing is, I really notice the difference when I do eat loads of veg.
I feel better. I look better – or at least I think I do which is half the battle in itself isn’t it?
Plus – if I’m honest – I do a better job of keeping mean mum who snaps at everyone and everything, at bay, when I actually eat my greens and don’t survive on caffeine and sugar.
I don’t know about you, but lunchtime is my weak point. It’s harder to bother if it’s just me.
Which is why I so love this quick green soup! It takes 5 minutes and gives me a real zing.
Quick Green Soup
All you need for this quick green soup is baby spinach, frozen peas & almonds.
Slightly defrost a handful of peas in a small amount of water in the microwave.
And then chuck them and the water in your blender with 3 or 4 handfuls of spinach and a handful of almonds. And whizz away for a minute or so.
Then gently warm up on the stove.
And devour with big chunks of spelt bread for an instant energy boost.
It’s chock full of iron, folate & other goodies to keep you going mentally all day.
Do give it a try and let me know what you think – honest opinions always welcome!
