Two For One

I didn’t manage to blog last night as I went out after work so I’ll do 2 brief ones today.  In the one post.

Breakfast yesterday was a skinny latte with Granola with yogurt, fruit compote and lots of fresh fruit on top.

Lunch was a super healthy salad with roasted vegetables, spicy chicken and tuna.

After work I went to the local pub for drinks with the team I work with.  And was joined by my sister Lucy and Lara.  We went to the Market for supper and a lot of it was out of bounds due to something being filmed.  There was a lot of huge pieces of meat hanging up round what is usually the fish stall, and then we found this chiller cabinet full of pig heads.

Macabre and fascinating and gross!  And enough to turn a person in to a Vegetarian.

We went to Fish! for dinner.  Apart from our ditsy and hopeless waitress, it was a great meal.  I had fish pie with spinach (not pictured as the waitress forgot it so it came later).

Lucy had lobster with new potatoes – eventually – and Lara had battered halibut and chips.  All the meals were lovely.

I was slightly anxious about what to have for dessert as there was no fresh fruit on the menu – luckily they do a calorie free hot sticky toffee pudding with ice-cream so I had that :-).

Today I made breakfast to take in to work; 50 g Granola with nuts in it, one blood orange and 100 g low fat probiotic natural yogurt.

It was market day so I went for a quick shop in Turnips and bought some baby aubergines,

some mixed tomatoes,

including these ‘Bulls Heart’ tomatoes!

I also bought some baby parsnips.

I did head to the Raclette seller for lunch but then veered left and went for a vegetarian stall instead.

I had a ‘Heavenly Halloumi’ burger on a bed of 3 salads with tomato salsa.  It was good.  I liked the way you could choose to have it in a bun or on salad so I went for the healthier option.  Just as well as I was tempted a bit later (we are talking minutes later here) with a piece of banana and walnut cake which was lovely but calorific.

I made a smoothie for dinner which I enjoyed.

It looked a bit beige but was full of goodness; banana, kiwi fruit, avocado, strawberries, kale and a pear.  Made up with ice cubes and coconut water.

This has been such a busy week but tomorrow I can work from home so no commuting – hooray.  And I can cook and eat healthily 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 :-)
