Art Class

I didn’t have such an early start today as I was working in Gillingham so I made us porridge for breakfast, which was lovely as I haven’t had any for ages.

I also had time to make lunch to take.  I was feeling like a Greek salad, so I started with 2 lovely tomatoes,

cucumber and Feta and also added some sugar snaps and carrots.  A grind of pepper and 1 tbsp olive oil and I was sorted.

I was stressed out when I came home so I decided to cook something.  A friend of mine, Maria, had asked me if I had any good dip recipes and I have been intending to make one up for a while.  Tonight was the night.  I put a can of red kidney beans in the blender with 1/4 of a fresh pineapple.  In the oven, I roasted a carrot, green pepper, onion, large plum tomato and half a head of garlic.  When they were cooked, I blitzed it to a smooth puree.

I was also roasting a tray of baby parsnips I had bought last week in the market.  On Sunday, Gary had made some delicious crispy parsnips and I wanted those to scoop up the dip.  It all looked good.

The parsnips were lovely but the dip was mediocre so not a recipe worth sharing.

Sorry Maria, back to the drawing board!

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. 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 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. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
