Fat In A Bottle

So I hope we are all in agreement that most smoothies aren’t that great for us right?

Don’t believe me? Let’s look at a situation that occurred just two days ago.

Allow me to explain myself –

Wednesday 730am. In walks Lucy, my 730am client.

“Gav, do you want this greens smoothie, they are giving them out at Liverpool St station?” (see pic above)

I then proceeded to explain to her the problem with a drink like this. In fact, it’s downright criminal that they can get away as touting this as a health drink.

So I went to Scotland last Friday for a weekend of adventure with my daughter Mia. We had a great time and one of the highlights of our trip was the search for The Loch Ness monster. 

Mia and I went up and down Loch Ness in a speed boat for over one and half hours looking for Nessie and we couldn’t find her much to Mia’s dismay, so much so that she made the statement “maybe she has died Daddy and has sunk to the bottom”.  I replied, “yes, maybe that’s it.”
