I’ve just made a rubbish smoothie. Yep, doesn’t happen that often but it’s just happened now and I want to share with you something that’s popped in to my mind. It was a simple enough recipe I thought, I’ll blend some apple and spinach with water. So I popped them in the blender and thought “Oh, green powders will make this waaaay more nutritious”, so I poured in some green powders. Then I thought “Ah, bit of vanilla and xylitol, that’ll round it off nicely”
Too much vanilla, just kinda poured everywhere.
Damn. Should be ok though…
Tasted it. Ick, toooooo much chlorella and WOW the vanilla is intense.
Chlorella can make your smoothies a bit, err, fishy if there’s too much so I added more apple and some goji water from gojis I had soaking. Blended again. Much better but still, not one of my master creations.
The point is this.
Practice makes perfect.
You need to arse up a few times to LEARN. Every raw food dish or drink you make refines your knowledge and skills about what works and what doesn’t, how much is too much and how much is not enough. The more you practice making foods and drinks, the better you get (true) and then you can show others how to do it too!
Do you know what else? Arsing up actually hones your intuition. You get intuition to put something in, it works great and you get to strengthen your intuition muscle too! Win-Win-Win-Win
So please, don’t worry about making a total arse of the whole thing once in a while. We’ve all been there. Even Russell James I’m sure 🙂
Arsing up is good.
