I had a really lively lunch yesterday, partly because I just needed the nutrients and partly because I needed to eat the lettuce before they wilt.

On the plate were cooked quinoa, lettuce, guacamole, and seasoning (dill, pepper, chilli flakes). I cooked the quinoa a few days ago so that saved some effort. The guacamole was really just mashed avocado mixed with red onions. And currently, dill is my new favourite herb. I just love the quirky smell and taste of it.

Now let’s talk about the smoothie! I basically put these in the blender:

  • a handful of almost wilted kale
  • two very ripe bananas
  • 6 dates (stones removed)
  • about 1:1 ratio of water to almond milk (making up 1L)

The green colour may look daunting but if you put a lot of dates or any other natural sweetener like maple syrup it will taste sweeter (duh!). Honestly, kale doesn’t have a strong taste anyway. And it’s super filling, I drank some during lunch and saved some for after I went to dance class.

Yes, this lunch was enough to prepare my body for a cardio session! I felt fantastic! I guess that’s what I get from eating live foods 🙂
