Prrrrrrrr….I’m just going to sneak in like a kitten that didn’t leave its warm haven.lol. Anyway I’m here. This January kicked off on a heavy I don’t really want to call it bad)note. A very close family member of mine fell critically ill and spent a few days in the intensive care Unit. My those were hard days! This taught me one thing if not a thousand things, Live the best way you know how because the next second is not guaranteed. However, I thank God
Today’s post is not about all the critical downs, it’s about a new turn I felt i needed to share. Having gained lots of pounds over the years I decided to change a few things in my diet and I hope this will help. I’m not on a strict diet though I am simply trying to eat “clean”.
I delved into the world of smoothies! Not my favorite, but can’t a girl drink an “emancipation portion” once in 10 light years? Lol OK.
So far I have done two smoothies.
1. A mixture of Bananas, watermelon ,avocado and mangoes.
2. The green smoothies-Spinach, cucumber, avocado and ginger (I should have thrown in a pineapple but I excluded it)
Today I’ll tell you a little more about the green smoothie.
All the ingredients used in the green smoothie are very healthy. I’ll just discuss a few of the benefits I considered before incorporating what I used in the smoothies. I considered what I am dealing with such as the muscle pains I get from the exercise, my weight loss goals, and skin benefits and so on. There are a thousand other benefits that are known, I solely based on what I am dealing with currently.
If you are on a way loss journey like i am lose weight, then ginger root can be of great help to you. It is said to be one of the biggest fat burners because it promotes general weight loss and helps to eliminates the stubborn fat from your body.
Ginger also helps in solving gastric troubles in the intestine. It relieve stomach upsets and indigestion.
Ginger is also said to lower the blood glucose levels in the body. Since glucose levels have a direct impact on your weight gain or weight loss.
Ginger helps relieve muscle pain caused by exercise. This is because of the heat treatment provided by the ginger internally; the muscle inflammation and pain levels are lowered considerably.
It offers relief from sunburn.
It improves the complexion of the skin and makes it soft supple and helps the skin to glow.
Cucumber seeds also help in losing weight and prevent indigestion, as the seeds and pulp have a low-calorie count, high water content and replete with vitamins and fiber.
Spinach helps in weight reduction as it is low in calories and fat. Spinach maintains low blood sugar and curbs overeating, It is nutritious and has a good quality of fat soluble dietary fiber. The fiber is said to aid in digestion, preventing constipation .It also keeps the body relaxed and completely stress free. It contains tremendous amounts of zinc and magnesium which enable you to sleep better at night.
It’s also known to prevent anemia and boosts immunity
It’s a veggie! My mum told me all veggies are healthy.lol
Avocado juice is among the best mouthwashes in the world. Avocado juice cleanses the intestine. It also helps remove intestinal decomposition and putrefaction, the real causes of bad breath.
Because of its properties Avocado boosts nervous system activity and improves muscle function
Avocados can help treat stomach ulcers and provide relief from the conditions.
Avocados are yummy! I just love them so I just had to have them in my smoothies.
I will try to keep up with this and take more pics as I make other smoothies. I shall try out more.

Lately the weather has been very unpredictable. I styled a comfy yet stylish look, one can wear on an evening out with the girls or a loved one.
Im a lover of crop tops, so I decided to keep it simple with a black crop and faux leather detailed leggings. The trench gives colour to the ensemble since the minimal heels are black too.
These leggings have been styled HERE and the heels HERE.
I opted for minimal make up and less accessories. I’m still playing around with the Marley hair until i can crotched it myself.
Hey everyone, meet Sheila a pal of mine and my “shoot director” for the day. It was lots of fun taking these pics.
AS THEY SAY THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS…
Have a lovely week everyone.
