A Blustery Day

A cold wind blew in today.  My goodness we seemed to have gone from summer to winter with nothing in between!

I was up slightly earlier than usual so I made a smoothie for breakfast which I took to work.  The quantity was very modest.  This is a small tupperware pot and is only about twice the size of a credit/debit card.

breakfast 10-10-13 2 I tried a banana and hoped it wouldn’t trigger a sugar craving.  It didn’t.  The banana was frozen and I mixed it with soya milk, Tahini and half an avocado.  It was delicious and kept me going until lunch time.  No sugar craving at all.breakfast 10-10-13 I made salad at home and took it in to work.  I added some olives stuffed with red pepper and Manchengo cheese.pimento olives Lots of baby salad leaves.salad greens Red cabbage, celery, tomatoes, spring onion and bacon.salad 10-10-10 2 I added a homemade dressing of olive oil, flax oil, white wine vinegar and salt.  I really enjoyed this salad as all the vegetables were fresh and flavoursome and the dressing was just right.salad 10-10-13I was hungry on the train so I bought a small bag of peanuts which did the trick and kept me going until supper.

In the evening I picked up Harvey and we went to collect Beryl who is coming to stay for a few days because Harvey loves to have her.  No, we can not have the cat as well.H with Beryl and cat Cheers 🙂gladd of red Quick and easy supper at home of scrambled eggs on toast.  One of my favourite go to suppers.Scrambled egg on sourdough

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 :-)
