London’s Burning

London’s burning.  Not as in being burned to the ground but burning as in so freaking hot!  Which is wonderful when you can stroll through the market and then sit beside the river having a cold beer but not so much fun when you are working.

MONDAY

Breakfast – I love London

Lunch.

Delicious Falafel wrap from Hoxton Beach.HB Falafel Hoxton Beach board Cheeky little ice-cream.  The cone was filled with melted chocolate and then topped with Bounty ice-cream and liquorice ice-cream.  Not so kean on the liquorice but the Bounty was lovely.liquorice ice cream

Dinner.

Drink with Lucy at The George.outside the George Then supper at Del Mercato.  I had a green salad and ravioli stuffed with Mozarella and tomatoes and served with an aubergine sauce.  It doesn’t look very appealing but it tasted delicious.  All helped along with a bottle of white wine.  It was a lovely evening and one I hope to repeat very soon.ravioli TUESDAY

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 :-)
