I haven’t had broadband access at home for about 3 weeks now and my website updates have been restricted to blogging from work (outside of working hours :-)) and not much else. Meanwhile efficiency Mits has been churning through the THV list of jobs like a woman possessed.
Mits has organised our new THV cake stickers for the online THV cake shop – also new & the THV corn plastic mugs are on order. How does she do it? Well I am beginning to suspect there are two or three of her roaming about!!
So this is my catch up blog… Spring is in the air after a long, dark, cold winter and the sun is shining once again. Yay!
I have spent the last month with my normal mixed diet of super healthy and naughty cakes so March is definately the time for more balanced diet for me. I have been consuming green smoothies for about a month now and I am pretty sure that my hair is thicker and healthier and my skin looks better too.
A green smoothie is a combination of green vegetables and fruit to make it taste nice. The difference between this and a juice is that all the fibre is left in so it contains more nutrients, fills you up a whole lot more and there is less waste to through away too. My favourite combination is spinach, rocket, mango & pineapple. Yummy.
There have been many questions about the pots of green gunk on my desk, most who try it are quite pleasantly suprised and good for them for trying :-). I have been asked if I am drinking grass (when it is bright green) or mud from the garden (pinapple gives it a sludge colour)!
On the cake front this month I have been working on some new flavours for the Bighton Eco veggie festival on Sat 20th. My favourites are definately the chocolate ginger zing and banana, maple & walnut – the problem with this one is that maple syrup is soooooo very expensive as are walnuts. I also need to adapt a sesame cupcake recipe given to me by Mits for muffins. They are too squodgy at the mo. I have also attempted my first ever raw chocolate cake.
