Leafy green veg like kale and chard are some of our favourite winter crops – incredibly easy to grow and brilliantly versatile in the kitchen. There’s a great thrill in gathering an armful of kale on a frosty morning or heading down to the allotment with a torch to find some chard for dinner! Big armfuls of curly kale and black ‘nero di toscana’ are destined for a batch of kale crisps and a very tasty green juice, our so-called ‘Green Goddess’. Full of homegrown green goodness and a real kickstart to the day….
A bottle of sunshine and the perfect juice for a cold, wet day! Refreshing and warming, with awesome immune boosting, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties to ward off any winter colds. Yay!
This is a great way to get reluctant kids to consume avocado – in a drink! Sounds weird, but trust me, it is incredibly delicious! Just ask my taste testers…
I call this our ‘allotment juice’, because it’s such a great way to use up our delicious homegrown veg! Obviously at certain times of year it becomes ‘organic farm shop juice’ (oh how I’d love to be growing big, juicy cucumbers in mid-winter)!
Whatever you call it and whenever you drink it, it will always be incredibly good for you. Yay!
If you’ve never tried making nut milk, do it this weekend. I promise you’ll love it! Packed full of Vitamin E which is really good for your skin and with just as much calcium as cows milk. It’s good stuff!
