I got on this morning , not praying late start and went for the comfort food, red bush tea with honey and a mamool cake, naughty I know, still I can justuffy it in my mind because I’m on, however as the morning progressed my head was not really waking up, hmmmmm, that stupid shop bought mamool, you know those little shortbread biscuits with dates in the middle in the cute little indiviual packets.
I needed brightness and that can only come from one good thing……fruit and veg, little packets of sunshine, they literally are.
There is a glut of wonderful British strawberries in the market right now, those blood red ones that you only get when there’s been some serious sun like the ones in Turkey or Morocco,there’s peaches and melon, so we have no excuse
1 punnet of strawberries, high in vitamin C , great anti histamine for those hayfever sufferers amongst us
1 peach or nectarine, high in vitamin C ad beta carotene, good for immune system and eyes, contain soluble fibre that is good for the heart
1 or half small yellow melon, melon contains high levels of potassium that is good for de toxing kidney and preventing kidney stones , its good for diabetes sufferer as the potassium and magnesium help lower blood sugar levels
wash chop and blend
its refreshing, brightening, simply summer in a glass
