If you’ve read my latest posts you know I’ve been crazy busy the past weeks, and it will be so for at least this week too. This week we have 20% off on everything in the store, so we have loads to do. Today is my only day off this week, and I was lucky enough to get to spend it with my very close friend that is moving to Greece next week. Monday was the day of an important football game at our home arena, and last night the whole family went to an instruction evening to get to practice driving at home. That being said, there are plenty of reasons why I’m a day late with this weeks Bloggers Do It Better post.
The topic this time was Bargains, and for me this was an easy one. The past few weeks I’ve been saving a lot of money. All because of my smoothie mixer. I used to spend loads on buying smoothies at my favorite place at the shopping center, but the mixer here has already saved up for itself (well, I didn’t pay for it myself but if I would have, the money would be saved by now). Not to mention all the variety I get now! I used to be stuck with my favorite mango smoothie, but now I’ve been experimenting with lots of different tastes. Also, it’s perfect for making soups for lunch, making me save even more money!
For soup I love using broccoli and cauliflower, just adding some salt and pepper. Maybe some herbs for an extra touch. Was told to use some lime or lemon, so I might try that next time.
For breakfast as a fresh start of the day I love a carrot smoothie with some orange and ginger.
Since I often work long days I try to bring a second smoothie to work. That one is usually a bit fruitier. A favorite is banana, raspberries and vanilla yogurt. If I work closing shift I like to ad an egg to stay full a bit longer.
Hope you got some inspiration from this post. If so, feel free to follow me on Bloglovin and Twitter. Hopefully I’ll be able to go back to my normal Blogging routine soon. Miss you all!
I thought things would have slowed down by now, but one colleague is still sick and the other one gets back to work today, but can’t work full time right away, so I was asked to work longer today and tomorrow as well. I’m working Wednesday too, but hoping either of them will be well enough to take my shift then. Going in for day seven today!
Since I really wanted to post something here I took a quick look through my camera and found a picture of one of my favorite smoothies so far.
This is made of carrots, orange and a bit of ginger. Tastes really fresh and feels like a good vitamin kick to start the day with. The orange colour is just lovely to look at as well! I still have some of your tips to try, but if you have more to share just let me know!

Today I got a new friend. We fell in love, and he moved in.
I tend to buy quite a lot of smoothies at a place next to work. I think it’s a perfect energy boost on long days, before work if I start around lunch time and won’t get to eat until late afternoon, or instead of lunch if I work to short shifts to have a break long enough to sit down with a proper meal. It’s not hard to figure out that I spend quite a lot of money on that.
Today me and my sister decided to make our own smoothies at home, which is quite a project since our blender is big and clumsy, a part of the lid is missing and it’s almost impossible to dish after use. My friend and my boss has told me about their awesome smoothie maker, where you just blend everything in a bottle and you’re good to go. I told my mother about this amazing thing that I had heard off and said I wanted to buy one of those. She said it seemed to be a good thing, but didn’t seem to show too much interest.
A few hours later my dad got home from work. And guess what he brought?! My sneaky mother had told him about my wish and asked him to pick one up on the way home, and so he did! Aren’t they just lovely?
So now, my precious readers, I want your help! What is your favorite ingredients i a smoothie? Some special combination? Just hit me with all your best tips, so I don’t just get stuck with my regular ones. There are so much more to experience now that it’s easy to do it all by myself.
