The main problem being my urging need for a strong cup of coffee with a hit of sugar first thing in the morning, and the a pre bed time glass of wine to wind down in the evening. My bad choice in drinks, alongside an unruly eating pattern that has no routine what so ever has finally caught up, and my energy levels are at rock bottom.

Super Green Protein Smoothie with Almond Butter

I decided to take the plunge and strip out sugars and bad fats for a small period, just to help reset all of my functionality buttons.

It might look pretty rank to those who don't follow any health or food bloggers, and hurl at the sight of anything that's this green, but please trust me, it tastes bloody delicious!
