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 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 :-)
