Wine to Ice-Cream

Don’t worry, I didn’t have wine for breakfast.  We had it the night before and as it was such  a special bottle it deserved a photo.  Last summer Lara spent several weeks learning how to make wine at All Saints in Australia and this is one of the bottles she brought back with her.  She just found out she had passed an exam so we celebrated and celebrated in style.  This was one of the best wines I have ever had the pleasure of.  Full complements to the fabulous wine maker 🙂  And check out the cork – a cute glass one.  That’s a keeper!

Overnight oats for breakfast.  I love this breakfast as it is delicious and so easy.

The night before I put 1/2 cup of oats in a container with 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1/2 cup of natural yogurt. 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and raspberries and blueberries.  Yum.

Lara made lunch for us ( I worked from home) – broccoli and cauliflower cheese with bacon.

Awesome 🙂

For supper I am ashamed to say I had ice-cream. Taywell’s honeycomb which is completely amazing and some chocolate fudge.  What possessed me to eat this you may ask?  Well I bought it because Harvey had a tooth removed this evening and it was an easy thing for him to eat and I couldn’t resist it.  Plus, I am full of a terrible cold with a very sore throat so too tired to cook, too ill to feel hungry and this was easy on the throat and no cooking required!

Well, you did ask!

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 :-)

    Feel better soon Zöe. If you have any Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother, mix a tablespoon of it with a tablespoon of organic honey in an 8 oz glass of warm water and drink. It will help your sinses and your throat. You can drink this every 4 hours. It works. Honest.

  2. I had the vinegar but we are out of honey 😦

      The vinegar and water helps as well. The honey is a natural antibiotic, just like the ACV is. It also makes it more tolerable to those who can’t do it without. I don’t usually use the honey. The ACV will work on its own to help with the throat and the sinuses.
