This is a vegetable I haven’t eaten for a while.Fennel

I chopped up potatoes, fennel and carrots and roasted them in 1 tbsp olive oil for half an hour.  I added 2 peppers and roasted for another 30 minutes with the Bratwurst.roasted veg

One Bratwurst with roasted veggies.  A surprisingly high 615 calories mainly because of the bratwurst (300) and the potatoes (237).  Tasty though.Bratwirst and roasted veg

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 :-)
