Feeling Fresh

I really enjoyed my breakfast this morning.  It tasted so fresh and alive.  I put 1/4 cup of oats and 1/4 cup oat bran in a tupperware pot with 1 tbsp chia seeds.

I added hazelnut milk, blueberries, a grated apple and a few pecans.  When I ate it at work about 2 hours later, the oats had absorbed the milk and the chia seeds had plumped up a bit.  Blueberries, apples and oats go really well together.  It was excellent.

At lunch time I was headed in to Green Market

when I saw Turnip was open which was unexpected on a Wednesday.

I do like squash and pumpkin season.

And I bought a spit roasted pork sandwich for lunch plus an apple.  It had been cooked with fennel which I think goes really well with pork.  Served in a Ciabatta roll with apple sauce and rocket it was delicious.

Not so bitterly cold today so I enjoyed the sights of London more.  Really liking how they light up the bridges.  This is Southwark Bridge

which I got to see close up because I walked over it to get to Cannon Street station.

Salad for supper: lambs lettuce, 2 tomatoes, 1/2 avocado, sunflower sprouts and home made blue cheese dressing.  Delicious, juicy, full of flavour and fresh.

It would be a really good day, if only I hadn’t eaten a Snickers bar this afternoon 😦

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 :-)
