Munching Seeds

What a very pleasant day I have had.

I began with veggies; spring onions, mushrooms and Swiss chard.Breakfast ingredients 25-1-14 Fried in coconut oil with rice and eggs, garnished with coriander.

374 calories.egg rfried rice 25-1-14 I did all sorts of intersting things today and ended up at my Dad’s.  I popped in to see him to wish him a happy birthday and found 2 of my sisters there.  They all enjoyed an afternoon tea and I managed to behave myself and ate something very light instead.

One yellow pepper, green leaves and humous.

lunch 25-1-14 With a raw orange.

295 calories in total.fresh range

Back home we had a quick and easy supper of half a Wild Alaskan salmon fillet, 1 small sweet potato roasted in coconut oil with a red pepper and steamed broccoli.

411 calories.Dinner 25-1-14

I should have stopped there and I would have been on 1,111 calories.  But while I was cooking dinner, I was decanting some of the large bags of nuts I bought and I munched on a few of those as I was hungry.  I gave Harvey a bowl of Munch Seeds Omega Sprinkle to nibble on but he didn’t fancy them.  Unfortunately I did and I couldn’t restrain myself and ate them all.  My nut nibbling and seed munching added 323 calories so I am over by 234 for the day.  At least it was healthy snacking and I remain under 1,500 which is my upper limit.

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 :-)
