Keto Smoothie – Blueberry Galaxy
This keto smoothie is perfect for a quick breakfast or a post-workout refuel option. It’s lighter and in comparison to my other avocado green smoothie, but I think I prefer this smoothie better. It gives you more energy, less grit in your teeth, plus vanilla and blueberries goes down an absolute treat!

Music Is My Life
Many of you might not know, but music has been a big part of my life, and still is. A few years ago I played in a band called Pigeon. We started in the living-room of a body paint party and eventually worked our way up to playing large-scale music festivals and touring around Australia.
Being in a band teaches you many different skills. We didn’t’ know at the time, but many of these skills have since translated to all walks of life. Once you learn how to create a brand, make executive direction decisions and work really fucking hard towards something you believe in, you can translate that skill into anything in life. Even if later you decide that it wasn’t meant to be.
Where am I going with this? Well, I bought all sorts of different musical instruments – Synths, keyboards, basses, and guitars. We even became sponsored artists by Korg Australia! You know what? NONE of the instruments I bought came with an AUTO setting….
Cameras and Auto Settings
Cameras, on the other hand, DO come with and auto setting. I do feel sometimes that photography can be boiled down to expensive cameras, expensive lenses, and a whole bunch of people using the Auto Setting… Musical instruments don’t come with an auto setting, so why should a camera?
Food photography is something that has taken me by surprise… Because so many armature photographers (including myself) started taking photos of their keto smoothie ‘s with their smart phones, it really doesn’t take a superb camera to make a photo drool worthy. It takes styling, perfect lighting and a whole lot of creativity.
I have taken plenty of crappy photos in my career. 6 months ago, I didn’t know a single thing about photography. But it’s nice to know that food photography isn’t just about an expensive camera or an expensive lens.
I’ve been going through my old recipes and getting some better photos to do them justice. This keto smoothie recipe is no different! – These are my favorite photos I’ve taken EVER!
Blueberries provide an excellent source of antioxidants which effectively “mop” up the free radicals caused by oxidative stress (exercise). This keto smoothie as a post-workout refuel option not only helps the recovery process but tastes pretty good too!
Folate, or known as vitamin b9 – is a very important mineral for pregnant women, supporting normal fetal development by decreasing the risk of neural tube defects. Men also need folate for sperm with correct chromosomal structure! Folic Acid also supports the regulation of cholesterol as found by a polish study.
Vitamin C is a powerful anti-inflammatory micronutrient which aids in immune system support, as well as creating correct vassal dilation, which in turns helps rectify high blood pressure. Vitamin C is also used to prevent scurvy, but scurvy only occurs when your diet is completely devoid of any vitamin C (like being on a ship for 12 months with nothing but slop for food). It’s not something you need to worry about these days!
