Market Shopping

I went to buy porridge but instead bought a ham and cheese croissant for breakfast.  It was good but very unsatisfying.  I should have gone with the porridge.  And radishes for breakfast is weird!

At lunch time I couldn’t wait to get in to the market.  My sister Abi is coming for lunch tomorrow so I wanted some yummy treats.  Plus it is Easter so where better to buy my family something special than Borough Market?

I am not giving away all my menu plans for tomorrow but there will be some Caerphilly

and Comte (yes, the piece the man is holding)

and a small piece of this unusual looking goats cheese.

I love skinny green beans and hope the ones I have sowed are successful but they are months away so I keep buying them when I see them.

I emerged from Konditor & COOK with a massive bag of ……….. surprises 🙂 .  And a rare roast beef with horseradish sandwich and a fudge brownie which did not exist long enough for a photo.  It was awesome but not as good as Monmouth’s.

When I got home I really needed to eat some fresh fruit and veggies as they had been lacking all day.  So I made a smoothie.  I am getting really lazy about eating salads but at least having smoothies gets the nutrients in.

Tonights smoothie was some black grapes, 2 clementines, 1/2 a lime, 1/2 an avocado, 1/3 can of pumpkin puree, mineral water and ice cubes.  No banana as the grapes were sweet enough.

It tasted very clean and refreshing.

I hit all my deadlines and completed my key tasks at work this week so I can really relax and enjoy the weekend.  I have so much lined up and so many wonderful people to catch up with.  Not quite all my favourite people but lots of them.  I hope you have a really wonderful weekend too.

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 :-)
