Kylie For The Goods The incredibly bright, loveable and organized Kylie was at THE GOODS making smoothies. We mixed and matched leftover ingredients from the week and came up with this beauty of a smoothie today. Romaine' Around Smoothie makes 2Ls 1 head organic romaine lettuce 2 organic bosh pears 4 sprigs curly parsley 1/2 stalk organic celery 1-1/2 lemons, juiced 2 tbsp chia 4 cups filtered water Blend well on high speed... but not too long, add ice if you like. Kylie also informed the kitchen that parsley, in high quantities will act as an emmenagogue, which means it stimulates menstruation. So if you're late, and not knocked up, bring on the parsley. Whether steeped as a tea, or blended into a smoothie or juice it's rumoured to work like a charm.

burrito Lisa inspired me yesterday with her gorgeous delivery salad wrap that I thought I'd make a version for dinner.  It really got me thinking about the uselessness of tortillas in a burrito.  All those white processed carbs & gluten just make me soooo tired and then if that's not bad enough, it then makes me crave pure sugar which in turns makes me feel sick.  So why bother when you can use romaine lettuce leaves instead. Pack those suckers with all the lovely fillings of a burrito and away you go.  Dinner last night was a revelation and it may just be an encore performance tonight.  Yes, they were that good and super easy. The Big Up Your Styles Burrito 3 large romaine lettuce leaves 1/4 cup hummus (or more if you want) Sauté onions & peppers & mushrooms in coconut oil (with garlic, onion power, cumin, sea salt & pepper to taste) Sliced avocado Salsa Layer all the fixing on top of the lettuce leaves and roll them up.  Have as many as you want - these little guys are solid gold. Yum!
