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 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 :-)

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