Timber!

The green green grass of home?  No, but I did manage to make a green green smoothie.

Starring kale, spinach and a punnet of strawberries which I blended with leaves and stalks on them.

Plus 4 dates, banana and 250 ml sugar free almond milk.

That set me up well for the day.  I had to work from home as we had a tree issue.

This tree, which died some time ago, had been blown over in the high winds and was propped up against the neighbours tree but leaning towards their garden.  I had arranged for a local tree surgeon to come round and he and his 2 colleagues pulled the tree down, chopped it up and loaded it in to my log store.

Good job done.  Thank you chaps.

I had some leftover brown rice in the fridge so I stir fried it with an onion, half a head of broccoli, 1 egg and a salmon fillet.  Drizzled with Cholula.

Brown rice, broccoli and salmon seem to go so well together.  A quick and easy lunch to prepare and a delicious one.

Unfortunately I undid most of the good work of the day by snacking on Doritos and humous :-(.  I was out at Harvey’s school early evening and we didn’t get home until 8:30pm so for supper we had a very easy to make wholemeal wrap with ham, tomatoes, cucumber, salad cream and sunflower sprouts.

So I managed lots of really nutritious and healthy food but ate too many points/calories.

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 :-)
