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 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 :-)
