What a very pleasant day I have had.
I began with veggies; spring onions, mushrooms and Swiss chard. Fried in coconut oil with rice and eggs, garnished with coriander.
374 calories. 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.
With a raw orange.
295 calories in total.
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.
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 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 :-)
