I went into Park and Shop the other day.
I generally don’t eat processed food so these days my shopping trolley is lighter, my choices are better and my bill is by far smaller. That is because about 3/4 of the food sold in most shops are processed food which I refuse to buy with my money.
It is amazing, when you eat crappy food, you spend your money buying food that makes you ill. Think about that next time you are reaching for processed food in that supermarket aisle.
So here’s what I bought: (Forgive the quality of the pictures, the lighting in my kitchen is less than adequate. Needs to be fixed). I got the apples and grapes from some Abokis on Adeola Odeku.
I decided to use some of my ingredients for a quick drink. I washed them and loaded them into my Vitamix.
Ran it for about 45 seconds.
Poured it into a cup
And guzzled it down in 10 seconds…aaah!
My drink was chockful of nutrients. It takes all of 5 minutes to wash and cut the veggies and fruits, blend them AND wash the blender. I kid you not.
I make a variant with over-ripe bananas and greens. My daughter LOVES it. I once had a potassium deficiency and the doctor asked me to take over-ripe bananas because they had more potassium than the ripe ones. In Green smoothies, bananas make them creamier and the sweetness cuts through the taste of the greens really well.
A warning: If you are going to get your spinach from Park & Shop, go through it carefully. This one was packed with some green chillis (don’t ask me why). I was lucky the first time but when I made another drink the next day, I missed picking one out and ended up with a peppery drink…. :(. I still drank it sha!
