A Lesson In Leaves

Overnight oats for brekkie with almond milk, banana, blueberries and sunflower seed butter.

Leftovers for lunch.

Sweetcorn risotto and tomato and lentil salad, topped up with celery and cucumber.

Something very fresh for supper.

Reddy, which is a red veined spinach.

An about to bolt and flower spinach head.

Wok Broc, which is a variety of broccoli grown more for its leaves than the more commonly eaten head.

Rainbow chard.

Komatsuna.

All popped in to the blender, with 1 tsp tahini, 1 banana, 1/2 a frozen avocado

1 tbsp coconut milk and some matcha

1/4 tsp matcha to be precise.

Plus almond milk.

Soooooo smoooooooth and creamy.  It had the consistency of custard and was well balanced too as I could taste the banana, avocado, tahini and coconut.

Well, all those Jubilee cakes, and glasses of fizz were most enjoyable but it feels goooood to be back on track with healthy eating.

The bunting is still up and these beautiful roses (thank you Holly) are a reminder of all the fun we had at the weekend.  But now the food has got to be healthy and hopefully slimming.

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 :-)
