28 Day Vegan Challenge : Day 11

I apologise in advance for a very brief blog but I am very tired!

Breakfast was the usual; 30 g oats, 15 g chia seeds with hemp seed milk and a banana.

For lunch I had a pot of the noodles I had made on Saturday.  I’d had to go out at  lunch time to run errands.  I was really hungry while I was out so I bought a bag of Bombay Mix to munch on which is made from lentils and nuts mainly so ticked the vegan box.  I was so cold when I got back to the office I decided to heat up the noodles which didn’t really work.  It somehow made everything seem tasteless and rubbery which is a shame as they were lovely when eaten cold on Saturday.

We were incredibly busy at work today but I felt cold and tired and had a bit of a gippy tummy.  I also felt incredibly hungry so I popped out in the afternoon and bought a soya milk latte, a small bag of popcorn,  a Bounce protein ball and a tiny packet of Booja Booja vegan chocolate truffles.  The chocolates were 2 small truffles that were the size of dice.  So a bit of a binge this afternoon but it just had to be done today!

At supper time I wasn’t hungry but I wanted to pack in some nutrients so I made a smoothie with kale, spinach, frozen berries, a banana, hemp seed milk and some Udo’s oil.

I didn’t have quite enough milk so I used some of this cherry juice I bought in Vegetare on Saturday.  It worked really well.

It came out looking like a chocolate milk shake and tasted pretty good too.

I don’t know about you but I am very tired and quite cold so I am about to retreat to my bed!  Have a good evening (or day, depending on where you are and when you read my blog).

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 :-)
