How My Garden Grows April 2014

Not my usual type of breakfast today but I went to buy some milk for teas during the day and I fancied this chicken sandwich.  I also bought some nuts and an apple so I had healthier bits to nibble on than I have managed recently.

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 :-)

    Bravo to the gardens and all the help both related and non-related getting everything ready to reap the rewards. I love it. Smile, because we had snow today and freezing rain. Fortunately, I saw the 14 day forecast and didn’t uncover anything yet. May will be a busy month for Canadians in the garden, like normal.
