Jaded

I definitely felt jaded this morning.  I tried to put a brave face on it, as much for myself as for anyone else.  No point wasting a lovely sunny morning by feeling sorry for my alcohol induced tiredness.

When trying to balance blood sugar it is not a good idea to drink juices but I wanted a burst of nutrients to help heal myself so I gathered some ingredients for a green juice.  First though I had a black tea with lemon juice, cayenne pepper and Goji peppers to wake up my metabolism.

What Zoe put in her juice today; Swiss chard, lamb’s lettuce, green pepper, 2 carrots, 2 sticks celery and an orange.

Chicken soup for supper. This is the stock I made earlier in the week with some carrots added.chicken soup in pan Eaten with more toast and more butter.  I must cut out the butter.  And the toast!chicken soup and toast

I have a quiet and relaxing evening to look forward to now.  Enjoy your evening.

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 :-)

    Can you purchase a sprouted bread , like Ezekiel Bread in England? still bread but better in terms of blood sugars etc…….grass fed organic butter is good for you, my two cents. 🙂

  2. I love juicing:) Never seen it come out like that though:) 🙂 Hope you are feeling better right about now:) Have a wonderful week:)
