Detox Day 4

It seemed very strange eating after a 3 day fast.  I was looking forward to it and wishing my first food wasn’t melon, which is perhaps my least favourite fruit.  I was allowed half a melon for breakfast and I chose a cantaloupe.

A special occasion like this called for the silver fork with the mother of pearl handle.

Enjoyed with a cup of fruit tea.

After eating nothing for so long, the melon seemed full of flavour and so sweet.  I liked it 🙂 .

Next on the agenda was half a pineapple.  I used my pineapple corer and slicer which is such an effective gadget.

It cuts the sweet and juicy pineapple you want to eat and leaves the skin and core.

It even cuts the pineapple in to a spiral.

Yum. Delicious.  Sweet.  Juicy.

I tried to capture how sparkly the snow looked but the pictures didn’t work.  So here’s a cute one of my dog eating the snow instead.

I headed over to Smarden, with a punnett of strawberries to spend some time with Kath.  This part of the world where I live,

Is so beautiful.

Next on the agenda was grapes and a pear.  I had four types of grape: 2 black, 1 red and 1 green.  The big fat black ones were the best.

Finally I had a bowl of raspberries, figs and a banana.

Harvey had his with soya yogurt and honey.

Amazing how just fruit, herbal tea and mineral water can keep you feeling sated all day!

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

    Was your body on a sugar high from all the fruit; especially after no food?
