Did you know that it was Blue Monday today (cue amazing New Order song). Apparently the third Monday of January is known to be the most depressing day of the year. You know what I think about that? Balls (as my dear Steph likes to say). Pure and simple.
Actually, if you do your research you’ll find it’s all a marketing gimmick from a 2005 publicity campaign for the TV programme Sky Travel. There is also an equation someone arrived at to pinpoint which exact date it is, as it varies from year to year. Yeah, whateves.
So whether you believe the hype or not, I’ll give you something to believe in. Smoothie Mondays. And the amazing thing is that it happens every Monday, not just once a year. Here’s my equation:
2 cups water
1 cup mix greens
1/2 small zuc
1 large date
1 tbsp hemp heart
Ingredients + blender + love = Happy Monday….every time.
