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 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 :-)

    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.
