Breakfast "Sludge"!

Linking up with "Weekend Cooking"!
Well "sludge" is what my friend Gale calls our "green drinks" and looking at it you can understand why! But never judge a book by it's cover, this is both yummy and nutritious and to prove it the ingredients are listed below!
A handful of organic greens from the garden including spearmint, cress and kale. The herbs are growing especially well almost outgrowing the container though I think cilantro is getting ready to "bolt" it doesn't tolerate the heat as well.
They share the container wth the small Mexican lime tree.
 Spearmint and Italian parsley are in this hanging basket, the  mint more lush than the parsley.
Additional ingredients for the sludge, hemp, flax and poppy seed.
Also raw oatmeal, almonds and walnuts.
 On the left frozen pineapple puree [when I cannot use all of the pineapple I puree it and freeze for use later in drinks, cakes etc].
Lime, blueberries, green apple, strawberries, plum, mango and cantelope, I forgot the carrot and coconut oil! A little ice water and bingo, breakfast in a cup! Now doesn't that sound tasty?!
I think I'll get sushi tonight!

I admit it doesn't look all that appealing, but the ingredients are all tasty ... I usually make a smoothie with Greek yogurt.

I'm inclined to agree with Beth - it may not look so beautiful, and calling it "sludge" probably does it a grave injustice, but it sounds delicious. Great way to start the day.

I would probably have to drink this with my eyes closed the first few times but these drinks are so good for a person that it's something I could get over. I love the green bottle of goodness from Trader Joe's and a drink I make with a soy mix and fruit. They're all good for you... so, DRINK YOUR SLUDGE, girl.

on their own each one sounds good but sludge them together and I just gag. sorry

Heather said...

yeah, I make some of these sludge as well. One answer to the view, is to purchase a pretty cup with a lid to drink it out of. I have a pink floral one and a blue one. they hide a lot of colours. When son is home, I always make him drink half of what ever I concoct.labor gealif
