Can We Have Noodles?

Sometimes I feel like one of the contestants on ‘Ready, Steady, Cook’!  The tv show where cooks are given a limited number of ingredients and in a short period of time they have to produce something delicious.  My week day suppers tend to be like that.

I rarely plan meals when I shop for food.  Instead I buy produce because it is a popular item in our house or it is on special or is in season or I just like the look of it.  Always lots of vegetables, some fruits and some protein.  Then I cook what one of us fancies on the day.  Tonight the little fella asked if we could have noodles which he loves and we haven’t had for ages.  They cook quickly so that was an easy yes.

I cooked up some soba noodles and lightly fried some large prawns.

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 :-)
