The Giggling Squid

The day started well with a smoothie made with kale, banana, frozen blueberries, low fat natural yogurt, chia seeds, plus I added 2 tbsp oats and a sprinkle of Spirulina.

She was rather happy 🙂

Lucy had been recommended ‘Giggling Squid’ and what a great Thai restaurant it was.  I recommend it if you like Thai food.  Everything was fresh and quite light.

The fried foods, such as these duck spring rolls and the tempura, were ultra crispy and not greasy at all.

Harvey loved his “Choob”, one of his birthday presents and amused himself (and us) for ages with different styles.Choob The corn cake was good.corn cake Harvey had the prawn Pad Thai.Prawn Pad Thai I had the chicken red curry which was perfectly cooked and spiced just how I like it.Thai red curry The sticky rice came in these cute little baskets.Sticky rice

Giggling Squid was a really good find and I will definitely go back there again.  This was taken outside a different Thai restaurant along the same street.  Someone couldn’t resist getting in!

The Choob is now a bandana!  Thank you Godmother Lucy for such a fab present (and the rest of the outfit but this was definitely the favourite).

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 :-)

    You are a true artist! Even the partially eaten spring roll is a work of art. I love looking at your photos! Thank you for creating them.

    • Thank you Emily. However, re the spring rill, I must confess that they were served like that, carefully and neatly cut in half like that. They were called ‘Yummy Duck Spring Rolls’ and they certainly were, yummy.
