There Be Dragons

Well, dragon fruit anyway.

This was perfectly ripe and juicier than previous dragon fruits I have tried.

I think it is an amazing looking fruit.

I chopped some up and added it to Muesli, natural yogurt and chia seeds mixed with almond milk.   A monochrome breakfast.

No photo of my lunch!!!!!  I had to attend a presentation and lunch was served as it was held at lunch time.  So I had 4 sandwich triangles with grapes.  Resisted the crisps and cakes.

Until I went out for a brisk walk and picked up a chocolate fudge nut cookie

with a skinny latte.

Then on the train home I bought some crisps!!!  No idea why because I don’t even like them much :-(.

At home I had a smoothie made up with half an avocado and mango I found in the fridge,

spinach and golden linseeds,

plus a banana, 2 medjool dates, ice cubes and almond milk.  It was yummy and the perfect thick and smooth consistency I like which I think the avocado gives.

Remember this brown tomatoes I had on Sunday and said I really liked?  Well, I think they are Kumatoes – my friend Laura sent me this link which is interesting – thanks Laura.

I must not eat garbage tomorrow!

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 :-)
