So Sorrel

What a mixed bag today was!  I started well, had a dip and then a good ending.

Breakfast featured frozen blueberries, hemp seeds, Acaii powder and protein powder.

For supper I had some of this sorrel I bought yesterday.Sorrel Chegworth It is quite lemony and was stronger in flavour than I expected.  So instead of eating it raw as I had planned,sorrel I added it to an omelette with some cheese.sorrel on egg I haven’t had an omelette for ages and it was delicious.Sorrel Omelette

Quite a tang left from that sorrel.  It’s the oxalic acid apparently.

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 :-)
