Last night my booja chocolates kept me awake - arrghh! I am so sensitive to caffeine. So the new rule is no chocolate after dinner. I might have to start investigating decent carob recipes and products - anyone have any suggestions??

Feeling somewhat down this morning and i find i'm craving something soothing, creamy and sweet.

So heres my...

Cacao, pecan, pollen smoothieCreamy Cacao, Pollen Breakfast Smoothie

1 Banana
2-3 (soaked) dried dates. If you don't soak the dates you'll end up with bits. The soaking may also activate enzymes.
1 cup - 1 1/2 cold water, 1/2 cup ice (or to taste)
2 tbsp pecan butter or 1/4 cup pecans if you have a vitamix blender
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tbsp hemp protein
1 1/2 tbsp cacao nibs
1 tsp bee pollen (test for allergy before first-time use, 1 grain under the tongue)
Few drops natural Vanilla essence

Add ingredients to blender and zoom! Oh btw if you don't have the best blender in the world add only 1/2 cup water at the start so all the 'bits' get processed then add the rest of the water/ice at the end.

sunny day
faerose_
What a good day, the sun blazed in a periwinkle sky and my garden is starting to come together. I haven't planted as much produce as i wanted to but i am please with the progress i have made. Especially since I moved and totally redesigned the borders. The roses are looking especialy beautiful, even the rocket and packchoy flowers look lovely; they totally bolted with the hot weather. Luckily i also planted lots of salad crops in the shade, you never can tell with the British summer which will be the better planting plan;sun or shade.

I also found the energy to do a bit of house work, and there are a few new beads in the kiln. I am please that only have one more bead from yesterdays batch still to post in my shop as the cleaning and processing are my least favorite parts of flameworking.

Oh and i found time to meditate - dang I'm good ;D
