There was an awkward moment this morning. In my enthusiasm I had thrown a few too many random healthy green things together for my smoothie. Rocket! Parsley! Celery! Banana! The result was deep sea green and slimy. It smelt like freshly mowed lawn. Four little people looked at it dubiously and said, 'Are you really going to drink that, Mum?'
It would have been awfully easy at that point to tip it down the sink. To throw some raisin toast in the toaster and be done with it. I mean two days of healthy living is a red hot go, right?
'I think it needs some ginger,' I said to my bemused little friends. I threw in a thumb-size chunk of ginger and whizzed it around. Then I poured it into my glass and drank it before I had time to rethink it. It was great, in a mowed-lawn kinda way. My children were most impressed. And as I downed my second glass, so was I.
Note to self: random items do not a fabulous green smoothie make. Compatablitlity of ingredients is key. Oh, and go easy on the rocket.
