…..In bed that is. If you were hoping to get your teeth stuck into a blog post regarding the current affairs of our country’s EU membership, then I’m afraid you need to chew elsewhere (you won’t have to look far). However, if you consider the inner workings of my psyche to be a political referendum that might interest you then by all means, keep reading.
For those of you who don't know, I had a 'thing' with porridge. Not just a little something on the side, a full blown love affair. (if you don't believe me, you can check out some old posts from this instagram account). Each day was a new flavour, a new hope and a new inspiration for my sister and I to ditch the hard life of school and open up our own porridge restaurant. We of course never quite got the oat-tivation (or parental permission) to do so. Fortunately for the porridge loving world, someone did.
So here is a review of the much awaited and anticipated little porridge shop trip that myself and my pro-porridge sibling embarked upon. Ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you about 26 grains...
Hot, lazy summer days can be celebrated in a number of ways, be it beach trips, barbecues or water fights.
All the good-weather gallivanting is thirsty work, and these activities quite often lead to some boozy summer cocktails shaken up in a wizz, or a softer sugary soda spritzed refreshingly over ice. However there is a flaw in this beverage logic....
These drinks don't actually quench your thirst and despite being a 'go-to' norm, why should you conform? They aren't easy peasy on your temple of a body.
So here is my easy peasy, lime squeezy, eat-clean-tea-sy MATCHA MAR-TEA-NI.
"It's time you met your matcha"
All you need is:
Just dissolve the matcha with a little hot water in your martini glass.
Top up with the bubbly water and crushed ice.
Squirt in some lime juice to taste.
Make the glass look insta-worthy with a cucumber slice.
Simple. A natural, beverage with the earthy undertone of matcha powder freshened up with a zing of lime.
So, enjoy the quick, easy, refreshing, superfood-filled, energy boosting, skin radiating, Japaneasy juice that will give you one refreshing summer that both your mind and body can enjoy (without the hassle of a blender) in one long and thirst-quenching #Summerofmatcha.
....On a final note, don't be fooled by the quick ease of this Eat Clean Tea summer drink, it might be quick, but it's no laxative containing 'tea-tox', simply a naturally fortified detox tea that works in harmony with that summer bod of yours.
So, cheers, and have a tea-freshing summer of matcha!
Barcelona, renowned for being a big pick-pockety place full of paella but in in my opinion it's more of a friendly cosmopolitan cove of culture .
With my sister on placement and a resounding phrase of "travel while you're young" ringing in my ears from many elders, I plucked up the courage to brave the brute of Ryan air and jet over to Spain for a quick April adventure.
Take a sip from the cup of my mind, and let the thoughts brew...
