Simple Green Breakfast Smoothie

The addiction to smoothies continues forever... And the simpler the better in my eyes! 

So grab these things from your fridge/freezer/cupboard or wherever else you may keep your food.

4-6 super spotty bananas
1 cup of baby spinach 
1 cup of mixed tropical fruit 
1 cup rice milk 
1-2 cups of ice cold water 

Blend the spinach with the coconut milk into a paste first, then add all the fruit and the water and blend blend blend. 

*and the vegans are going to blend blend blend* 

Drink up and be happy.

What I Eat In A Day #2| VEGAN

Tah-dah! Another 'What I Eat In A Day' post, I wanted to do these more often than I have but I don't always have my camera near by when I'm eating... 

Breakfast: As always I started the day with a big bottle of water, and on this day I had marmite on brown toast (get that B12 in people) and a bowl of oranges.

Snack: You guessed it more oranges, I happened to have loads of really juicy rip oranges so why wait to eat them!

Lunch: *please excuse the over exposed photo* *cringes* Can we all raise our hand to me finally putting blueberries in salads because this is the best! I made this salad with a mix salad bag, falafel, thai crackers, sesame seeds, tahini, chai seeds and moron hummus. I had two bowls of this, because second helpings are important to me okay...

Dinner: PIZZA! I bought some remade bases from the supermarket and put loads of veggies on top of some tomato sauce. The veggies included onions, potatoes, spinach, peppers, and mushrooms, all topped with siracha.

So there you have it what I eat in a day.

The Book Club| By The Stars

By the Stars by Jessica Marie Baumgartner 3.5/5

Not long after New Years, European Geeks Publishing & Eleventh Hour Literary Press sent me this lovely little e-book to review. I have always been fond of Sci-fi and anything to do with space but i haven't made time to read any over the past year favouring historical fiction... So naturally when I saw that this book was about 100 pages long, how could I say no! 

I had no idea what to expect from this book, I might have gone in with slightly high-expectations hence the 3.5/5 star rating. But hey do you know what I connected with the book, I could relate with all of the characters on some level be it the irritation of not being independent to the wanting to stay the same and not have to adapt. There definitely was an addictive quality to the story, you want to know what happens, and why everything is the way it is, I personally would have loved some more detail in terms of flashbacks etc but I would assume that comes later in the series when it is released. And even though at times I felt the language was quite simple, the story was one of the more compelling sci-fi novels I have read in my time (oh great now I sound old...). I'm not sure if I will continue with the series as they are released, but do you know what it makes a nice little stand alone.
