Turkish Autumn Salad

I apologise for the lack of photos today and the quality but I was a little bit ditsy today.  I completely forgot to photograph my breakfast of yogurt, 1/2 cup of oats, 1 tbsp chia seeds, hazelnut milk, blueberries and banana.

I went out with a colleague for lunch.  Something I rarely do but the work is calming down very slightly.  We are still very busy but I had time today to pop out for 45 minutes.

There is a Turkish restaurant on Borough High Street, near London Bridge, called TAS.  We didn’t go there though :-).  A few doors along is the TAS Deli where they do wonderful wraps and salads to take away.  Alternatively, do as we did and eat in.

I chose falaffel and humous with 3 salads.  There was a tabouleh, a chick pea salad and a spinach and apple salad.  They were all really good.

It was good for the soul to get out and hopefully work will stay more “normal” so occasionally I can go out in daylight, especially at this time of year.

Supper was easy.  I reheated a portion of the chicken and sweet potato dishes I made earlier in the week.  The chicken and sweet potato dishes both reheated very well but it all looked rather brown so I added some lambs lettuce, one of my favourite greens.

It looks like a Shepherd’s Pie but it is actually chicken casserole.

I managed to avoid cakes, sweets and chocolates all day 🙂

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 :-)
