Had a craving for green! After Christmas dinner feeling bloated and sugared out I made a quick simple green smoothie in a mug – spinach, frozen banana and honey.

I did feel a bit worse for wear on Christmas morning after the red wine, but it was nice to enjoy a festive drink for a change, especially with so many of my friends and family! We spent Christmas morning at my sisters watching my nephews opening presents before having lunch at my Mam and Dad’s. Father Christmas has been very good to me again this year, as well as pressies I got a couple of gift vouchers and some shopping spending money. I can’t wait to hit the sales today!

How was your Christmas? What was your favourite gifts to give and to receive? I feel so lucky to have got so many lovely things, I’ve already been planning the recipes I’d like to try from Cook Veg Everyday and the Hazelnut Booja Booja truffles are to die for!

Have you been enjoying plenty of foodie treats? I’m working very hard on not feeling guilty for indulging in so much chocolate (I ate a lot yesterday!), I’ve been eating till I’m happily stuffed! Hope you’ve all had an amazing Christmas!
