Feeling a bit #peckish ? I’m at the office it’s not time for lunch just yet, but my stomach is roaring ferociously under the safety of my blouse.  I’ve come to realise this doesn’t just happen to me, many stomachs like to do this! Even though you’ve eaten a decently portioned breakfast or lunch for some tummies this just won’t do! They grumble and protest to the extent that they let out a loud embarrassing moan. A sound I often liken to that of a dying farm animal. Well the stomach must be stopped! You must fight back! And whenever one does feel a little hungry those four redeeming words come to mind “I need a snack!” Our brains shoot to the hunger-busting favourites, Snickers, a muffin, crisps, Twix, maybe another muffin? These snacks come fully armed with lots of carbs and sugar ready to do the job. Yes we like them, they do shut our tummies up but I’m here to suggest a healthy, much over looked substitute… a SMOOTHIE.
