When you’re busy juggling work, family and social life (not to mention all those other things you need to do too, like the laundry…..), eating healthy, three times a day can be challenging. And even though I believe I eat pretty healthy (if you don’t count the pies and cakes I bake every weekend, but those don’t count, right?), I sometimes wonder what I could do to improve my eating pattern.
Especially when I read about people that seem to have such a strict diet of green kale smoothies in the morning, a salad for lunch and surprise surprise… another salad for dinner. I can’t help but wonder how they do it, and more, how they can keep up with this kind of diet for such a long time. How can they not long for some good fatty fries or a very rich brownie? (And I mean the ones with real butter, not the kind of brownie with secret healthy ingredients)
Well, I’m afraid that just by asking these questions I’m demonstrating exactly why I’m unfit for a whole vegan, paleo or whatever kind of diet.
This doesn’t mean I’m eating unhealthy, or that I’m not up for a good vegan or paleo meal of course. After all, I do love to eat nice food!
And sometimes, I think of something new to eat, prepare it and while having it I have an epiphany: Am I eating something vegan at this very moment? Well blimey, I am!
You see, I was kind of proud of my unintentionally vegan discovery. Normally, going vegan, even if it is just for one meal, would be very challenging for me. Something vegetarian is easy, but to also leave out all dairy products (no cheese!) AND eggs would pretty difficult.
Now, this isn’t the most difficult of recipes, in fact, it’s not even a real recipe… I mean, throwing together two sorts of fruit and adding some coconut milk (cause it gives you that nice summer vibe), isn’t exactly haute cuisine. It’s a full breakfast on its own, but I also like to top it with some granola for a bit of crunch.
- ½ avocado, peeled and cut in big chunks
- ½ banana, peeled and cut in big chunks
- 150 ml of coconut milk
- Put everything in your blender and blend until you have a smooth mixture.
