Nutritional Therapy

I felt exhausted when I woke up today so decided to heal myself with excellent nutrition.  Luckily I was working from home so I could create my own healthy meals.

Breakfast was a smoothie made with frozen mixed berries, cacao nibs, sesame seeds and soya milk.  Delicious.

Mid morning I was peckish so I went and picked some green leaves: radish, chard, spinach and kale.  I whizzed them up with a banana, some almonds, chia seeds, cottage cheese and coconut water.

Green goodness in a glass.

By lunch time I was feeling much better.  I picked some lettuce, a radish and some peas.

I saw somewhere recently, but can not remember where, that someone made a Waldorf Salad but using cottage cheese instead of mayonnaise.  I had half a tub to use up and so I tried it.  In to my cottage cheese I mixed celery, apple and walnuts.

For the salad I used the lettuce and radish, plus some chopped up raw broccoli and the cottage cheese Waldorf Salad topped with the fresh peas which I ate raw.

Seasoned with a little salt and lots of pepper this was delicious.  It also made me giggle, remembering the Basil Fawlty sketch in Fawlty Towers 🙂 .

I highly recommend nutritional therapy for helping recover from a very busy working week.  I am so thankful I am working from home today and have the peace and quiet and time to prepare simple but nutritionally dense meals and snacks.  They really don’t take long so there is no excuse for not eating healthily.

This is my last post for a day or so as we are off the the Hop Farm festival for the weekend.  Peter Gabriel tonight and Bob Dylan tomorrow.  Looking forward to it very much and hoping the rain stays away!

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 :-)

    Your day of eating just makes me smile. Especially because I was eating cottage cheese with fresh oregano and a Kumato cut up into pieces with a piece of rye toast sprayed with olive oil and sprinkled with cinnamon.

    Cheers to food that makes us feel great.

    Great job on eating nutritiously and building up your energy for your awesome musical weekend ahead.

    I love all the rainbow colours of your Zöe Waldorf Salad. I wish I was there to have some.
