What A Noosa Time

Our lovely hosts,  Debbie and Keven, are very inspirational.  They eat so healthily and I have some good ideas to take away with me.

This is a typical breakfast which is super healthy and tastes fantastic.  Stir fried vegetables with grilled fish.  This fish is ‘Sweet Lips’ which is a Reef fish.  It was very firm and had a delicious flavour.  We ate outside in the sunshine.  What a wonderful start to the day.fish veg and eggHarvey enjoyed playing Keven’s Kaleidoscope Challenge puzzle game.H and K with kaleidoscope challengeWe all enjoyed a day with Keven today.  Unfortunately Debbie had to work.  We headed off to Noosa which is a well known and rather up market beach resort.  We began at the National Park so we could do a bush walk.  There was a bush fire at Noosa North Shore.Noosa fire 2 It looked rather alarming but it was all gone by the time we returned 4 hours later.Noosa fore 1 This is a Strangler Fig.  A seed os dropped high up in a tree by a bird. The seed germinates and sends roots down to the ground and eventually grows completely over the host tree which dies.strangler fig 2 strangler fig Many of the trees are incredibly tall so they can poke out above the canopy.Noosa trees It was a very pleasant 1.4 km walk from the National Park to Noosa town.Noosa Beach sign Yet another stunning Australian beach.Noosa Beach 2 Noosa Beach We had a good lunch in a restaurant overlooking the beach but none of us can remember what it was called!  I can remember what we ate though – a Wagyu burger with chips.Wagyu burger and chips We had a good potter in town.  There were many smart shops to go and look around but none of us bought anything.  It was enjoyable just strolling around.I love Noosa Lara at NoosaOn Saturday we were up and out before 7am to get to the Kawana Market.  This is a weekly market held in the grounds of a school.  Debbie goes each week and we enjoyed going with her this morning.
H at Kawana Market I have market envy.  There were so many local producers, many of whom were organic.  I would love to have access to a market like this each week.Sunshine Organics The basket on the left contain something called ‘Elk’ which I have never heard of.Elk and Tai Soi I had a coffeecoffee beside mural and Harvey found a dairy free chocolate fudge cake which he enjoyed every morsel of.dairy free cakeI then succumbed to a slice of carrot cake which was excellent.
cakes We bought a soy candle which has less toxins than standard candles.soy candlesThere was a huge juicing and smoothie stand.  I was asking about their juicers as I want to buy one but I don’t think I will be going for the one that cost AUD 4,000.

Back at Debbie’s she chopped up all these vegetables which is a typical breakfast.  We had some roast beef left over from supper so that went in too.Debbie's veggiesDebbie cooks everything on the BBQ on the verandah.

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 :-)
