THE BLENDED STORY
Our story starts back in 2014. I was in a corporate job, working all hours and battling to be as healthy as possible which, as we all know, can be a real struggle! I’d often drink fruit juices and smoothies but I found myself questioning ‘When was this blended and has the lovely fruity goodness just turned to sugar?’ I decided to invest in a blender, that way I'd know exactly what I was putting into my body.
I quickly fell in love with making my own smoothies and would spend my spare time experimenting with different flavour combinations, blending morning, noon and night. I was amazed with how easy they made getting your 5-a-day and before long I was easily getting close to 8 or 9!
Fast forward a few months and the initial blending novelty had started to wear off and I had made a few observations;
I was spending up to half an hour every day peeling, chopping, coring, de-seeding & weighing a variety of ingredients.
There was almost always food being wasted at the end of the week, I mean who eats a whole watermelon!
It was really hard to consistently balance the important taste & texture elements in a new smoothie. I’ve had some shockers – Kale, Beetroot, Banana and Peanut Butter is not the one!
It also proved a challenge balancing a good tasting smoothie with one that was healthy and nutritious for my body.
One night, after a particularly long day, I was in the kitchen getting my ingredients ready for my morning smoothie when I thought to myself ‘Wouldn’t it be great if I could just wake up, take a pre-portioned packet of smoothie-mix out of the fridge, tip it into the blender and get a smoothie that not only tastes great but is good for me?’
18 months (and several hundred kilo’s of fruit and veg) later, with the help of a Nutritional Therapist, Blended Superfoods was born!!
