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 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 :-)

    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:)
