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 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 :-)
