Healthy Hemp

I had some fruit bread and a coffee for breakfast but it was raining, again, so no photo.  I didn’t get out to lunch until 2:30 by which time I was really hungry.

I felt really tired too so I went to get some wheatgrass for a boost.

I mixed it with a smoothie so it was more palatable.  It was really good actually.

I went in to the market to go to Arabica, my new favourite but it wasn’t there!!!!!  So I went to an old favourite.  Toasted cheese.  Mmmmmm.  The advantage to going so late is that there wasn’t such a crowd do I had time to queue.

I chose the toasted sandwich rather than the raclette.  Yum.

My friend Eula recommended a hemp seed milk, mango and banana smoothie the other day so I tried it tonight.

Mango and Hemp Seed Smoothie

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 large banana
  • 1 large mango
  • 300 ml hemp seed milk
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Blitz until smooth

It went the texture of custard which I love.  I could easily have drunk it all but I had to share with my little man.

I like the hemp seed milk and it made a change from almond milk.  Harvey really liked it too.  Thank you Eula.

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 :-)

    I haven’t seen Hemp Milk here, but I do love Hemp Seeds for the great fibre and healthy fats and protein they are. They are great in smoothies, cereal, salads and have a nutty taste to them. Yes, the required serving to release weight of 3 tablespoons is around 170 Calories, but it is all great for the body calories.
