Happy Bank Holiday weekend! It’s a 3 day weekend here in the UK and we finally have some sunshine and warmer temperatures!
While Charlie was working his socks off today, I had a relaxed morning with a cup of coffee before trotting to our local Brockley Market.
It’s a fair walk to the market since we moved house a little bit further, but it was rather enjoyable in the sunshine. Although I was struggling at times to take pictures with a smoothie in one hand.

This is my personal favourite. I just about noticed it, the house was buried in the greenery.
Welcome to Brockley Market!
I was very very tempted!
But then I was intrigued by another stall! ‘Horse Powered’ guys were making a variety of smoothies from some healthy stuff.

And here it is – my Berry & Bee Pollen smoothie made from summer berries, Poli-Floral Romanian bee pollen, ground linseed, oats, bananas and rice milk. The other options were ‘The Velvet Underground’ made from beetroot, apple, lemon and Spirulina or you could enjoy ‘The Emerald Zinger’ made from Apple, Lemon, Ginger, Spirulina and Camu Camu. Rose Lemonade sounded very refreshing and Vanilla Maca Maca seemed very sweet.
I also bought some fruit, veg and a bit of organic beef for tonight’s dinner, a very English dish – Cottage pie with garden peas.
Simple, but very time consuming, definitely worth the effort.
