Lucky Number 13

18 Sep

Day 13 over here and still going strong. I have to say that I am starting to notice little glimpses of feeling better here and there. Nothing specific really, just an overall sense of wellness and, apart from the previously mentioned expected monthly issues, my guts are feeling good too!

Last night we made this FANTASTIC potato and pea curry from my gluten free vegan cookbook. It had onions, garlic, potatoes, peas, cashews, and a whole whack of spices. It was super fast and super easy. And it cleared our cupboard of potatoes and our freezer of this bag of frozen peas that have been there since who knows when. So big points all around! I would love to share the recipe, but I’m sure that’s an infringement of some sort. So, you’ll either have to go buy the book or be a real-life friend so I can just lend you the book! 🙂

But this morning, oh this morning – I created a smoothie like no other. It is truly heaven in a glass. It was inspired by several other recipes I have found, but it was all my own creation. So with great pleasure, I present:


  • 1 Banana
  • 1/2 cup Pineapple
  • 1/2 an Orange
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1-2 Tbsp Flax Oil
  • 1-2 Tbsp Shredded Coconut
  • 1 Tbsp Flax seed (another plus for the vitamix – no pre-grinding my flax seeds)
  • 1 scoop Vega Smoothie Infusion
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 1-2 cups of Fresh Kale leaves – removed from the stem
  • I also add some Vitamin D drops (2000IU) and a liquid multi-vitamin supp from my ND

Throw it all in the vitamix and blend it up – it tastes just like a Pina Colada! And the kale give it a lovely mint green colour while also packing it full of kale-y nutritional goodness….pure liquid bliss.
