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 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 :-)
