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 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 :-)
