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 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 :-)
