how to make a protein smoothie without protein powder

Photo by Kiersten Frase. I’m a morning smoothie junkie. If you have it, I will blend it. Lately I’ve been trying to get a bit of extra protein into my diet, and, much like sneaking extra greens in, smoothies are the perfect vehicle. I’m not really into protein powders.

I had a bit of a wonky week this week and ended up not sticking to my meal plan in the slightest. I had three lunches out! Takeout soup in lieu of salad night, and grilled cheese in lieu of omelet night. Who am I? What this means is I’ve got a good little stash…

Yotam Ottolenghi’s A to Z of summer veg, with recipes to match. 2. How intestinal bacteria may influence our moods. 3. In praise of sharing food. 4. It…

what’s good around the web!

We had a scorcher of a week here in Stockholm, by Swedish standards anyways. The sun doesn’t really set at this point in the summer. Rather, it sinks, moves across the sky, and goes back up. It means we’re getting some pretty spectacular sunsets from our favourite vantage spot in the city, and trying to…
