Nutri Advanced Superfood Plus‏..


This week Nutri Advanced have just launch their new Superfood Plus:

"The formulation that not only blends some of the most sought-after vegetables, fruits and supplements – including enzymes to support digestion, ginger, cinnamon, turmeric , green tea and reishi mushroom – but it also contains Chocamine®, a patented, standardised cocoa-based ingredient that has no fat, sugar or caffeine. The only sweetener is a touch of stevia." 

They kindly sent me some of the Chocolate SuperFood Plus and Vanilla UltraMeal powders’ to try out.

Vanilla and chocolate... These are coincidentally my favourite flavours!!, especially in smoothies and milkshakes. How yummy!


Drinking smoothies instead of my plain sandwiches for lunch, sounds like a fun plan to me!  Especially as the Sun was shining so beautifully, (for a change!). I was inspired to make a summer fruit smoothie with the UltraMeal Vanilla.

Creamy Blueberry Smoothie : Creative Mondays Blog hop...


Happy Monday everyone. Creative Mondays is my favourite blog hop of the week as I get to see all your amazing creative ideas. Link up, have fun reading other posts on the hop and please be kind enough to link back to the hop in your post.

Hope you have had a lovely weekend?

My 2 eldest sons popped over from Uni, this weekend for Mother's Day. It has been so lovely seeing then but I am also sad I've not had chance to spend quality time with them :( On Friday I became really ill. I have a really bad fever. Shaking, achy bones, pains in the head, sore throat and runny nose. Typical!! :( I hate being ill, off to bed now and hopefully I will be better tomorrow as it has been 3 days now..


My husband brought me lots of fruit yesterday to help me get my vitamins in.

I love smoothies, especially ones with bananas in it.

Banana, Kale, Strawberry, Peanut Butter Smoothie..


My husband brought a big bag of freshly chopped curly kale for us to try. I was a bit worries about trying it at first as we had never had it before. No worries though as we are all loving it. 

We have had it stir fired, boiled and raw in smoothies. Today I am sharing my favourite kale smoothie so far.

Sunday Runday : Fitness Catch Up...


I have had a great week for eating more healthy and getting out running.

Trouble is I keep forgetting to log my runs.

I blame summer holidays!!

Some days lately I can not even remember what day it is.

Sunday right!?!

I do love my usual routines and finding time for the gym.

Exercise really does make you feel better in yourself.

Not getting out exercising makes me grumpy!! Haha!!

Banana, Strawberries And Peanut Butter Smoothie...


I love making smoothies. I also have 4 children who love drinking them too. Everyday here is a smoothie day since getting my new smoothie maker for Mother's day.


This smoothie is mine and my daughters favourite so far. My youngest son is not a fan of peanut butter so I make his minus this ingredient and sometime with a bit of Nutella in place of the butter, now he likes that!

As for us we love it, I would drink almost any smoothie with peanut butter in!?! I have read that runners should have a little peanut butter a day so a great addition to my after run smoothie.

Blueberries,Banana And Granola Breakfast Smoothie : Janathon day 6...



Today is long run day, having to do 12 miles on my own was itself a challenge. I nearly didn't do it, none of my friends were running today, so I was going to do 6 miles this morning and 6 later. Hmm like with a dinner to cook and find time before getting the 2 youngest children bathed and to bed early for the first day back to school tomorrow, no I knew that plan wouldn't work!!
