More Macrobiotics

I had made breakfast and lunch the night before so I was guaranteed a healthy and cheap beginning and middle of the day.

I broke my fast with papaya, brown rice and pistachio nuts.  The papaya was lovely and it was a soothing and enjoyable meal.

Lunch was leftover stir fried millet and vegetables.  I made a dressing to take with me which I added just before I ate it: 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp white wine vinegar, juice of 1/4 of a lemon and 1/2 tbsp soy sauce.  It was delicious.

After a very long and stressful day at work I got home shortly before 9pm so made a very simple supper.  1 pineapple

+ some tofu

+ some ice cubes, blitzed in the blender.

Fresh and light enough for having been consumed so late.

Not a perfectly macrobiotic days eating but low fat, nutrient rich, wholesome and tasty 🙂

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 :-)
