It's that time of year where colds and flu abound. I seem to get a sore throat, which I usually try to soothe with hot water, honey and lemon. I came across this brilliant remedy recipe from Simple Green Smoothies and decided to give it a whirl.

So organic lemons, organic ginger and some honey my mum recently brought back from Greece (yes that's honeycomb) have been combined in a lovely jar and are currently in the fridge. I will let you know what the verdict is when I try it.

I also signed up for the free 30-day challenge so I've been getting green smoothie recipes emailed to me each week. I definitely feel a difference already. My hair is definitely shinier and a couple of people have said I look like I've lost weight (I haven't but that felt nice!).  I don't use them as a meal replacement, though I don't ever eat breakfast and have been having smoothies in the morning so it kind of is!  They really fill you up and I've been experimenting, adding chia seeds and coconut oil when I fancy them. 

Check out the Simple Green Smoothies website, there are loads of great recipes to try! It's not one of those 'don't eat food' kind of sites, it's really an honest and inspiring place to get healthy inspiration. They do have a recipe book available to buy but the website is still full of lots of information and free recipes.
