So it is day 12 of Covid and it is the first day my appetite is truly back. This is the perfect breakfast for a Covid convalescent I reckon because you cannot deny that this is a HEALTH DRINK.
It was this recipe that prompted me to start a top 100 as I wrote a blog post about it, and Mr R pointed out that I’d written about it before. Well, yes. Sometimes I do make a movie star speciality more than once. But it got me thinking, for those that I make often, maybe I should do a definitive post and then never mention it again? So here are my last thoughts on the PFBB (or The Easy Rider Smoothie as I started calling it way back in 2017).
1 – I do not know what Peter means by “sea protein” – do you? I use spirulina.
2 – I love that Peter Fonda knew about chia seeds in 1971. They didn’t cross my consciousness until about 45 years later.
3 – Peter Fonda is the next-but-one stop on The Great Bear adventure (right at the bottom, aka Camden Town)
but I don’t think there is any way on God’s green earth I can get Mr Rathbone to drink a smoothie with spirulina in it. Luckily I have one other Peter Fonda recipe, a lentil soup. So we’ll be having that. Watch this space!
Curious to know if you can easily buy unpasteurized milk? Here in Canada it is prohibited to sell raw milk, although you can apparently legally cross over to the states and buy raw milk and bring it back for personal consumption — or make an under-the-table deal with someone who has a cow, and hope they don’t get caught… or have your own cow.
When my Dad was little he was sent to his grandparent’s farm to drink raw milk (and run around in the fresh air) because he was “sickly.”
Glad that you’re feeling better!
It’s hard to get here VT, I’ve never managed to score any myself but I THINK you can sometimes get it from farm shops xx
Hope you continue to recover well!
Do you have any James Caan (RIP) recipes?
Oooh, good point Margie. I have checked the Silver Screen Suppers Spreadsheet and I see the following – Kidney Stew (not appealing during a heatwave!) and Limko. I had to look up Limko… It’s a chicken dish that looks pretty good – going on the to-do list!
Goddamned hippies, that looks disgusting . Just have the blueberries, banana and some bio yogurt, just as good for you .. Do not blend ! Eat from bowl with spoon . Follow with nice toast with pumpkin and sunflowers seeds in, etc, spread of choice and you’ve all the fibre you need in your brekkie ! Damn flower power generation, couldn’t even do breakfast right !
