To get your creative juices flowing (and keep them flowing), I reckon it’s important to have a healthy diet with foods that will act as a slow release of energy into your body. As much as I love a good cup of English breakast tea and the occasional piece of cake, I do have to watch that I don’t end up on a sugar rollercoaster. So here’s my mid morning energy boost smoothie, which is easy-peasy to make:
I just whizz up the following in my hand blender:
* one banana
* half a cup of frozen berries (I always keep some in the freezer)
* about a cup of your favourite milk (I use oat milk or rice milk, but you could use normal milk or soya too)
If you’re a chocoholic, you won't regret adding a teaspoon of cocoa.
It takes about 30 seconds, tastes delicious and will keep those cookie cravings away for a couple of hours while you get on with your creative pursuits or other business of the day.
