A Few Of Her Favourite Things

I was tired after the night and the week before so I made a very healthy start to the day.  I enjoyed strolling round the sunny garden looking for nutritious things for breakfast.  I picked a flowering cabbage and some spinach.  I juiced them together with a red pear, a kiwi fruit and 2 carrots.

Someone special was coming home for the summer today so I went out to choose some of her favourite things.  I ended up in Frankie’s Farm Shop .  Look at this basket of deliciousness, which was for lunch and supper.

I rarely buy mixed grape wines so I don’t think I bought this.  I found it in my drinks cupboard and it was really delicious.  Very blackcurranty and smooth.  Thank you to whoever brought that round.the Waxed BatWe enjoyed a delicious rib eye steak from Farmer Palmer’s, with mashed butternut squash and salad

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 :-)
