Too Much Eating Out

I have barely made myself so much as a cup of tea today.  I have eaten out all day which has been lovely but I need to get back to the kitchen and back to the healthy food.

I took Harvey out for breakfast this morning.

We went to the new coffee shop which has just opened on Stone Street in Cranbrook called Cocolicious.

They made hot chocolate with soya milk – hurrah.  I like the space and light in here, the decor and the furnishings.  It may be a bit pink for some but I liked it.  I do have a bit of a thing about coffee in a glass cup – I just don’t like it so next time I go in I will see if they have a mug instead.  Monmouth has rather spoilt coffee for me in most other places so this coffee was slightly below par but I am probably being fussy.Harvey in Cocolicious We both had a smoked salmon bagel and they were extremely helpful with making sure Harvey’s had no dairy in it which was appreciated.  Mine came with dill in the cream cheese which I liked very much.salmon bagel I liked Cocolicious and will go back.Cocolicious flowerAt lunch time I took Lara out and we went to the Milk House with Lucy and Michelle.  Lovely bread roll and excellent butter.

We each had a main.  Lara and I both had “Lemon-thyme crumbed rose veal escalope with spring-onion mash, a pea shoot salad and roast tomato coulis”.veal escalope 2 It was very good.  I am not sure I would choose to have the tomato coulis with it as the taste is quite sharp compared to the other flavours but I did really enjoy it.veal escalope 1 None of us fancied any of the desserts on the menu so we popped in to Cranbrook and went to Cocolicious for a cup of tea and a piece of cake.  I had a little sponge cake with Nutella icing.  Very enjoyable.afternoon tea 12-1-14 The boys wanted a curry for dinner.  I wasn’t very hungry so I just had a taste of the others curry; an onion bhaji, chicken korma, chicken bhuna, sag paneer and peshwari naan.  Very good.curry 12-4-14

I am now completely stuffed and planning a much healthier days eating for tomorrow!

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 :-)

    I love the teapot and tea cups. That is what I call a real afternoon tea. 🙂
