Lonesome Tonight

Are you lonesome tonight?  I am 😦 .  It will be a long time until I see this beautiful face again.

So today was rather bleak.  The grey sky, torrential rain and gusting winds did nothing to alleviate my mood either.  I was determined to eat really healthily though, to make myself feel better and finally shake off this terrible cold.  Porridge for breakfast, made with 1/2 a cup of oats, 1/2 a cup of water, and 1/2 cup plus some more almond milk.  Garnished with fresh raspberries and 1 tsp almond butter.

I made a simple lunch to share with Lara before she set off for her other home at Uni’.  I was going to use the one and only red pepper I managed to grow.

Look how tiny it is compared to a shop bought one!

But I was happy I had at least one pepper, even though I had planted lots of them, one is better than none right?  Well, yes it would have been, but when I picked it, the pepper was rotten so I did actually have none.

Never mind, I had home grown onions which I chopped up and fried with mushrooms, red pepper and purple sprouting broccoli.

I was going to add the veggies to the omelette but I made too many so just served them on the side.

With a rocket salad.

This was a 2 egg omelette with a very light grating of Cheddar.  The salad had some mixed sprouted lentils and pulses in it too.  Yummy.

Supper was very quick and easy to prepare.

Yup, pasta with a tomato based sauce and some smoked Cheddar grated on top, plus rocket and cucumber on the side.  Simple but effective.

I was pleased with how I ate today as it was healthy and diet friendly.  Apart from the food in these photos, I snacked on an orange and an apple in the afternoon so I am happy I ate well.  Just not happy without my girl here.  The girl’s sofa is way too big for just one girl 😦

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 :-)
