Short and Sweet

I was working in the Gillingham office today, which is about a 45 minute drive away so I had plenty of time (i.e. no excuses) to prepare a healthy breakfast and lunch.

I got out my little tupperware pots and in to the breakfast one went 1/3 cup of oats, a splash of milk, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 2 tbsp natural yogurt and 1 tbs flax seed oil.

Topped with some melon.

Lunch was a really healthy salad of cauliflower, broccoli and carrots, which I chop up very small.

Plus tomatoes, grapes and celery.

Then a handful of mixed sprouted seeds and beans and raisins.  I dressed it with salt and pepper,  1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp maple syrup.  Delicious.

I was home from work by 6 pm and decided that I wanted a quick and easy supper so I wasn’t spending the evening cooking and clearing up.

I was very hungry when I got home so while I was thinking about what to eat, I had a slice of bread with cheddar and pickle.

I decided to have sardines on toast, which is nutritious and cheap.  After the excessive spending on eating out last week, I need to be more economical this week so Harvey and had a tin of these each on one slice of wholemeal.

Sardines on toast.  Easy.

I was going to have a nectarine afterwards but someone small has eaten them all!  That same someone who has just asked “how come none of the ball throwers are pretty?”.  Yes, we are watching the shot put.

So that’s all for tonight.  Keeping it short and sweet.

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 :-)
