Lovely Leaves

I was starving this morning so I had a chicken and bacon sandwich and skinny latte from Pret.  It was pouring with rain, so I grabbed the breakfast and ran to the office – no photo.

At lunch time there was a break in the rain at 1:30am so I popped out for lunch round the corner and bought a salad with spicy chicken, mozzarella and tuna with a honey and mustard dressing.  I went for lots of protein again as I am so hungry at the moment.  It does work though.  I wasn’t hungry all afternoon 🙂 .

On the way back to the office it rained so hard I literally ran back to work and still got soaked!  It is wet, wet, wet today.

I was so happy it stopped raining this evening and I left on time so I could spend some time at home with Harvey.  We went in to the garden and I had a lovely potter about, looking at my seeds and plants growing.

I picked some rainbow chard and spinach for supper.  As demonstrated by my young assistant, these leaves are massive!

I went for a supper that was full of vegetables and goodness.  And vegan.  I didn’t intend to be vegan and I have no intention of becoming vegan, but when I eat really healthily, I have observed a lot of my meals are vegan and very delicious.  This was no exception.

I had sweetcorn, spring onions, cherry tomatoes, sugar snaps,

broccoli and black eye beans for protein and fibre.

I stir fried it with the rainbow chard and spinach and served it with coriander.

This was so tasty.  I only lightly stir fried it so the vegetables were crunchy but just warmed through which is how I like it.

Love those lovely leaves.

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 :-)
