Okay I finally put pics up of my so-called garden.. . it's a little sad lol!! My green leaf lettuce is so big that i'm just gonna give it to my brother's rabbits.. . the tomato plant that has its own tomatoes is store-bought, the ones in the garden are from seed. Next year i'm not gonna grow as much lettuce lol!!
Here are my two smoothie recipes. Fair warning, they are more meant for nurishment than they are meant to taste good.
My morning smoothie ingredients are: frozen blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, 30g of pure hemp protein, 15g of ground flaxseed, 7.5ml EFA oil (not vega's but one I made myself) and 100% pure orange jus. Also whenever I have it, I freeze pure 100% cranberry juice into ice cubes with water 1:3 and throw one of those in there.
My afternoon smoothie before my workout looks like this: frozen mango, banana, pineapple, papaya, 30g of pure hemp protein, 15g of ground flaxseed, 7.5ml of coconut oil and 100% pure orange jus.
I try to make each smoothie about 600ml which tends to fill me up just right. Some people say different things about smoothies , when to have them and what to put in them, but I just treat mine like meals and drink plenty of water during the day. I hope this helps and good luck on finding that smoothie that is just right for you. Oh! Almost forgot, I buy all my fruit from local farmers at the markets in Montreal and freeze them myself, it gets difficult in the winter, but I manage.
Try to have as much fun finding your favorite smoothie combination, its took awhile for me and much experimenting, but now I have a meal I look forward to having everyday.
Sweet we can learn how to garden together lol!! I'll take some pics this w.end and post them up, but it's pretty SAD. We live in a townhouse so there's really not much gardening area. The plants I tried from seed were tomatoes, lettuce, parsley, and chives. The lettuce was super easy to grow, tomatoes took forever (hoping for a late season harvest!), chives never grew once transplanted and parsley didn't end up growing at all. My mom gave me some plants + we bought some so it doesn't look too sparse. Definitely a learning experience!!
Welcome to Vega Community and congrats on your first garden!! Me & my boyfriend just bought a townhouse this year so I created my first herb/vegetable garden.. . At first I grew some stuff from seed, then gave up and bought plants. Yours looks way better though!
