Corn sausage soup - proof we can't take a good soup photo haha...but it tastes awesome! Cost: 4.5/5 (even cheaper in the summer when corn is on sale), difficulty: 4.25/5 (last step is blending part of it), taste: 4.5/5 (great texture and flavour!). Overall: 4.4/5.
Sausage (mild Italian) + onion + garlic + red pepper + a few potatoes + corn (fresh, frozen or canned) + stock.
Justin got a @blendtec last week so naturally our first move was to attempt all the tiki drinks 😜 Tonight he made painkillers, and I would just like to say, soooo glad it’s my Friday! 😘 (also, we can finally put our Star Wars tiki mugs to good use!) 🥥🍹🗿
Today's smoothie: 🏝
Secretly hoping my #blendtec blender is a portkey to transport me to the tropical places these fruits were grown by the touch of the smoothie button- until this stupid lingering winter weather is behind us.
Sadly, it was not.
Oh, well. Bottoms up! (The two Littles gulped theirs down before I finished cleaning up in the kitchen!)
Just made some "salvaged" juice. Half eaten green apple, one lone carrot, a few stalks of celery, and some frozen pineapple chunks from a pineapple that was getting ripe fast. Now for the taste test...not bad! Some serious celery aftertaste but honestly I could definitely sip a few cups of that back. I could have added a lot more pineapple chunks or an orange for some more tang to offset the bitter but yeah. Also I blended these vegetables practically whole (with water) in my new Blendtec and 50 seconds later they were smoother than a smoothie. .
I always used to think it was impossible to live a less waste lifestyle when busy. I used to run to the nearest store and grab a sandwich and something to drink to have for lunch, which always came in packaging. Later I realized that taking lunch with me for work or school didn’t mean I had to spend an hour every morning preparing a special meal to take with me. It simply meant I could make a bit more food for dinner so that I could take the leftovers with me the next day. Soon I noticed that I wasn’t leaving any trash behind while having my lunch anymore. I also didn’t have to spend money or run to the store. So my zero waste lunch has made my life easier after all 🌱😄
This is today’s lunch. Leftover vegan Chana masala with brown rice. So simple to make and tastes amazing 💕
🍒Healthy Cherry Garcia anyone?! 🍒🍒🍒🍌🍫 Frozen bananas and frozen black cherries with a few dark chocolate vegan chips. Delish! Preschooler loved it too 💘
All blended in blendtech twister jar with a splash of organic 🍎 Apple juice to make it go
Like I’ve said before, rainy days provide inspiration for bright-coloured shoots. This weekend, we’ve experienced non-stop freezing rain and icy conditions so that explains the intensity of these mango shakes 🙊
Actually, there’s been a lot of yellow in my last few posts so you get the picture on how the weather has been lately 😂🌨🌧🌬❄️☔️
Blendtec es una empresa que ha entendido y utilizado muy bien el poder de un marketing viral.
A través de su cuenta de YouTube Blendtec ideó una estrategia muy original de volver viral su negocio haciendo videos de sus licuadoras destruyendo cosas que normalmente no se meten dentro de una licuadora, como celulares, tablets, luces químicas, entre otras cosas. Estos videos causan una gran impresión a las personas que lo ven y sienten la necesidad de compartir ese video con sus amigos, así esta empresa dio a conocer la potencia de sus licuadoras y lograron aumentar sus ventas un 700%. Y ¿Quién no confiaría en una licuadora capaz de destrozar un Iphone?.
El marketing viral puede traerle enormes beneficios a tu negocio y por lo general se necesita de poca inversión monetaria (a veces ninguna), pero lo que si debes tener es mucha creatividad y aprovechar las tendencias.
