I woke up this morning at 8:30, contacts still in, make-up smeared across my face and hair stinking of sick. It was not a good morning. I guzzled myself a couple of glasses of water, took out my lenses, texted people apologising for the previous night’s behaviour and went back to sleep for 3 hours.
On next waking up, I lied in bed for about an hour playing super Mario on my DS and hid under my covers from the world, it was time…. I needed to face the music and somehow stand up.
I made it. My feet touched the ground and I felt as if I had aged 50 years in seconds. I was hunched over, shuffling around to find my glasses and was shaking from the hangover. I needed to eat or there would be another repeat of last night’s awful end.
Holding myself onto the banister, I made my way down stairs to the kitchen. I usually have poached eggs when I’m hungover, fresh, healthy and filling. I had no eggs. I remembered I had bought myself an issue of Women’s Health the other day for something to read on the train back from London (will post about this trip soon!) and there was a section of Healthy-super-foods for breakfast, one of which was a refreshing looking smoothie. I never have them either so I decided to give it a try!
250ml of semi-skimmed milk or soya milk (I had light soya c: )
1 banana chopped
2 tbsp good quality cocoa powder
2 tsp honey
Stick in a blender (or a jug and use a hand blender) and blend.
Took all over 2 minutes and created a deeply rich, smooth drink. The bitter chocolate was hushed by the sweetness of the banana and the honey. Depending on what kind of honey you use, you can bring different dimensions of flavour to the smoothie too. (If you’re vegan you can replace the honey with something like Agave Syrup) And it was so healthy! You get a bit of fat from the milk but with tons of protein too, potassium from the banana and a naughty bit of chocolate heaven. It was a life saver. It completely settled my stomach, got rid of the shakes and I feel 100 times better. Now I’m hungry again so gonna have something solid to eat! haha
(Sorry there isn’t a photo…. I couldn’t function properly this morning let alone gather the energy to pick up my camera and take a decent picture.)
I thought going to Wordpress would help my food blog, would help me get more followers or more notice out there in the big old wide world of food. But no. To be honest I don’t post as much on there as I would like to but I think I have to come home for a bit. Back to my original blog and my original ideals of food. Losing a bit of my connection with it and only seem to be eating pasta and eggs recently.
