Day One: Green Smoothie

Master O went back to school today.
He was only there for 2 hours before he was home again 
with an upset tummy.
So production in the work room is going slow.

Here is a peak at a few things I worked on over the school holidays.

Fairy Sprite Headbands, Hair clips, Pixies in new colours plus I dyed a load of felt.

Today is day one of my cleanse.

Here is the recipe for the green smoothie that I had for lunch.

1 cup almond milk
1 cup of water
1 cup or more of  Kale or Spinach
1 tablespoon of Chia seeds
1 scope of Protein Powder
1/4 teaspoon of Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of Cardamon
1/4 teaspoon of Nutmeg
1 Apple
1 Banana
Juice of one orange

All blended up.
It was yummy

The Beach

No matter what time of year it is I just love the beach.
I don't think that I could ever live happily far away from a beach.
The sand, the sea, the sky its all so restful to my soul.

Only 3 days of the school holidays are left.
The time just goes so quickly.

We spent a week at my parents and they spoiled us with
amazing home cooked meals, so next week its time for a cleanse.

For the last few years August has been my cleansing month.
So tomorrow I am stocking up on juicing goods all ready for Monday. 
I am starting slightly early
this year (My jeans are a little tight!)

I found this wonderful board to help me with my green smoothies.
