I have one challenge going already to do yoga or meditate once every day for 7 days straight. I often set goals- sometimes I reach them and sometimes I get distracted. I am a firm believer in never giving up though and to try again. So regularly I will set challenges here- for myself and you if you are happy to join me. Like a lot of people I’d like to be that little bit more toned, eat a bit better etc. It’s important with balance in life, which is one of the reasons you will never see me on a diet or to cut things out. For me personally- that doesn’t work. I need my ice cream, chips and being Swedish now in Denmark- my liquorice! But I do realise that I need to increase fruits and vegetables in my diet. That’s why I’m getting into smoothies. As I’ve said our old one decided to give up. A bit ironic that it happens when I’ve decided to start incorporating smoothies in my day.
And I also did something I usually don’t do. I bought a blender I’ve never heard of?!
When we spent time in the US KitchenAid, Oyster, Ninja are popular brands. In the U.K. Nutribullet. Here I don’t know yet but have seen KitchenAid, Bosch and Nordica. I just don’t want to spend too much nor do I want a big blender in my kitchen. So lo and behold when I stumbled upon this gem:
Cook & Baker from Imerco. It’s small, has detachable cups and you can put it in the dishwasher. So it sounds perfect for me and what I will use it for. Even better is the price at less than DKK 400!
So my next challenge will be to make a smoothie every morning for 7 days- using this blender and finally look for recipes in a book I got years ago: Smoothies by Stella Murphy. It’s never ever too late to start! I do not plan on being too adventurous though as I don’t want to end up with 100 ingredients in my fridge to get the variety.
So that’s my next challenge after my Yoga & Meditation has finished.
