My husband promised me a weekend in the sun when he asked me to join him on a business trip to Doha, one of the sunniest countries in the world. Rainy days are few and far between in Doha, so imagine my amusement when I managed to have a weekend filled with thunderstorms and downpours. From the very start the weather affected my trip – just when we were in the final approach to landing the plane lifted back up, diverting to Bahrain where we had a short break, waiting for a thunderstorm to pass before we were able to head back and land in Doha.
Smoothies are a wonderful and quick way to add some fruit and vegetables to our diet. Packed with vitamins and essential minerals they are a great way to start the day or boost our energy levels when needed throughout the day. My Orange, Carrot & Ginger smoothie is made in no time, consisting of only five ingredients which are all full of goodness – a delicious way to rejuvenate the body!
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas with your loved ones! It was an exciting year and I am very much looking forward to sharing more travel and food adventures with you in 2017 – coming up are more entries about my recent travels to Doha and South Africa and a little bit later in the year I will share my travels to Portugal and of course there will be many more delicious recipes. Wishing you all a great start to the new year, your support and comments mean a lot to me!
