Veggie Tables

Breakfast at my desk.

Bircher muesli made the night before; 1/3 cup oats, 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 apple and 10 hazelnuts.  Drunk with herbal tea.  I really like how the texture of Hazlenuts soaked in a liquid overnight taste.

I went out for lunch today for the first time all week.  Wow, that sunshine was glorious.  I joined the queues at Veggie Table in the market.

I opted for the vegan burger which was served in a lovely chewy bun with seeds on it with a fresh tomato salsa and hummus.  Really good.

And salad.

This box is so full of goodness and deliciousness.

I really enjoyed sitting in the sun in the little garden at Soutwark Cathedral, absorbing some vitamin D.

I enjoyed a lot more later on too.  We had a team meeting in another office near Moorgate and I persuaded my colleagues to walk rather than take the tube.  It was very hot on our half hour walk through the City!

I came home on time and enjoyed preparing a healthy supper.  Vegetables.

More vegetables, including chard, spinach and beetroot leaves from the garden.

Stir fried with garlic, soy sauce, left over brown rice and 1/2 a jar of flageolet beans I had picked up in a French supermarket which also had some carrot and little onions in it.

I made a massive portion which made about 2 bowl fulls.

I managed them both.

Cup of chai tea with honey and I am ready for bed.  Another good days eating 🙂

 

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 :-)
