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 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 :-)
