It is impossible for something to be objectively the “best ever”, because it would need to be statically superior in every way to everything else in its class, and be able to be measured against different contexts, environments, and scenarios. But this smoothie is the best ever, without doubt.
For breakfast, a snack, a treat, or to celebrate being tops, this smoothie is the Swiss-army knife of smoothies – the Swiss-army smoothie if you will.
We at Project UNITED are massive on research and learning and knowledge and education. For trues. But occasionally things arise that you just have to shrug off and get stuck into and see what happens, and perhaps investigate the likely outcomes/consequences after the fact. Black bean cold brew was one such case.
How black bean cold brew came to pass
Simple: the wife (who I commonly refer to as “sorry, Honey”) and I discovered a top-shelf pasta recipe which involves the use of black beans (the recipe will be published on Monday). The other night, let’s call it Thursday, during …
We have spoken fondly of lentils previously mainly because they are extremely nutrient rich, and also very versatile. This lentil and veggie pie/stew is an absolute ripper anytime, but particularly as the evenings start to cool.

When it’s a thousand degrees outside and you can’t possibly drink any more water, consider having a dash at our orange, strawberry, and mint green tea cocktail. It’s refreshing, different, and comes with all the benefits of green tea.
Green tea (enough to brew up just under 2 litres)
Two strawberries, halved
Three mint leaves
Using whichever green tea you fancy, brew up enough to almost fill a two litre jug.
We didn’t know what else to call them. Apple bagels with peanut butter aren’t so much a recipe as they are just a crazy genius idea. So simple, but so gadamn delicious and easy.
As the image suggests, all you need to do is take an apple, red or green, and cut it into slices. Cut the core out and spread some peanut butter on each slice. These can be eaten immediately or refrigerated for later. Basically you can’t lose either way.
We have seen these with maple syrup, oats, and dried fruit, but at Project …
This is one of those “C’mon bro, you’re not even trying” type recipes, it’s that easy. Mayonnaise is a bit of trap for those trying to eat healthy. Even the fat free stuff is pretty heavy on the calories. But this one gets the job done and takes about 8 minutes.

2 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup oil (possibly up to one cup if required) – something heart healthy like an avocado oil or macadamia
