We get through a lot of bananas in our house. I usually have at least one a day, and Rob usually has at least two. So I order lots. And they usually come in lots of little bunches. But not today...

This bunch has about 20 bananas on it!

My lack of appetite/liquid diet seems to be having some sort of effect. This morning Rob asked me if I'd lost some weight, as my pants looked looser. I have no idea, as it's a struggle to get clothes off and on at the moment, but my stomach seems to be flatter.

Today's eats
1. Smoothie with rice milk, yerba mate tea, rice protein, banana, cloves and spirulina
2. Green smoothie made with cos lettuce, cucumber, avocado, apple and a couple of prunes
3. Last of the chicken and corn soup, apple
4. Dinner-plate-sized salad with coriander dressing, T-bone steak, glass red wine

Every cloud has a silver lining, they say. Your back might be totally stuffed but your stomach is flat LOL.

Hi Charlotte, hope your pain is getting better. Are you having any treatment/therapy for it? A question about the yerba mate, do you add it to the smoothie as is or make a tea and add the liquid? xo Sandra

LOL, good one Magda!

Hi Sandra, my back is getting better thanks. My husband is a myotherapist, so he has been telling me what I should and shouldn't do, and he is going to treat it soon (has been too acute up until now).
Re the yerba mate, I make it into a tea, then add the liquid.
Cheers, Charlotte
