Chicken Nuggets

I ate a lot of really delicious food today but some of it was very fattening.

Coco-Nutty Granola with kefir, banana and strawberries.

Then we had pudding – eek!  Such a lot of delicious food and hey, it’s nearly Easter !

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 :-)

    Hi Zoe. Try the nuggets with just egg and flour – so tender and golden and no breadcrumbs. Delicious! Gini
