Healing Myself

Breakfast:

a green smoothie made with a huge handful of spinach and frozen berries,

4 dates and a banana for sweetness

coconut milk plus Hemp protein powder, Acai powder and Maca powder to add some antioxidants and extra nutrients.

It came out brown again!

For lunch I wanted something more substantial.  I had one of those avocados that just won’t go soft.

So I sliced it up and cooked it with some ham and added both to a 3 egg omelette.  The avocado was still not great but overall the omelette was really good.

I pulled up some parsnips, carrots, beetroot and potatoes from the garden for supper.  Scrubbed the vegetables, added a corn cob I found lurking about in the fridge, drizzled with oil, seasoned and baked in the oven on about 190 °C for 40 – 50 minutes.

Served with Chèvre Blanc.  The chalky saltiness of the cheese complemented the sweetness of the root vegetables.  Very tasty.

This would have been a pretty good days eating, if only I hadn’t succumbed to some chocolate and almonds.  I am enjoying eating the healthy food but really struggling to not eat the junk too.  Help!

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 :-)

    Chocolate is good for you and so are almonds. Did you have too much? It sounds like a great snack to me.
