The day has lost that fantasy element of the early morning and clear blue skies have evaporated that morning fog. I'm at my desk for a morning of personal admin and general time wasting. I love that about stay at home Saturdays.
Speaking of time wasting, remember way back on August 9 2010 when I convinced myself I'd be able to do a one day juice detox?
|What I was supposed to only drink for 24 hours.|
Here in May 2012, I've found some new rainbow coloured drinks to fill my fridge with. Don't worry, I'm not going down the same detox track as before. I just get bored of water sometimes and find that Glaceau Vitamin Water has just enough sugar, taste and vitamins to start my day. Before progressing to whole foods. With crunch, texture and nutritional value.
Like granola and a chopped banana. I'm not a detox person so I'll just have to concentrate on not putting those 'toxins' into my body in the first place.
With a whole day at my disposal, I've dusted off my tea pot and am trying a new loose leaf tea from T2. It's called Terrific Toffee and it sounds perfect for this weather. It also smells heavenly with pieces of nougat punctuating the black tea leaves.
I brewed mine for 3 minutes and the result was a very smooth and creamy mid morning cup of tea. I added a dash of milk and a couple of Ginger Nuts (for their calming properties) and in so doing seemed to have killed that chocolate craving I had 15 minutes ago. Perhaps I'm a tea rather than a juice detox person.
Wholesomeness is a morning activity for me. My plans for this afternoon involve these periodicals devoted to 'current affairs' and some snacks to keep my brain cells ticking over as I read.
Happy Saturday, everyone!!!!
