March favourites



Spring has sprung and the clocks have just gone into summertime mode, which is such a good feeling after what feels like an eternal winter! I had to think hard this month to come up with a small list of favourites, as I've been very low maintenance this month, but there are a few things that I have been using very happily during March that are worth a mention.

Why routine is a good thing



I have been resisting routine for a very long time, partly unconsciously but also with every fibre of my conscious being. I am Spanish, so you would be forgiven for assuming that I am programmed to be laid back and spontaneous. Whilst not everyone in Spain is blissfully chilled, there definitely is a difference pace of life, a more start-stop attitude than the go, go, go that is so common in the UK. Then of course we all like to think that we are spontaneous and go with the flow.

Pineapple smoothie bowl recipe

I've always liked smoothies, but over the past 6 months I've gone from always making banana with oats and chocolate to having a Pinterest board dedicated to them and mostly making them up depending on what's too ripe in the fruit bowl.

They make a great breakfast, whether you're on the go and need something to take with you, or if you're feeling a bit worse for wear after a night out.

My latest concoction is this delicious pineapple smoothie bowl. Pineapple is a super fruit packed full of vitamins. It contains vitamin C, which is an antioxidant and boosts our immune system. It also contains vitamin A. For the body conscious, it is known to avoid fluid retention and therefore contributing to a less bloated, flatter stomach.
