Planning Paid Off

I tried really hard yesterday to plan for the week ahead so I had plenty of healthy and sugar free meals and snacks to hand.  It worked well today.  I ate some delicious food but didn’t have to prepare any of it, just reheat or get out of the fridge.  My forward planning really paid off.

For breakfast I took a portion of coco-nutty-granola with raspberries and natural yogurt (unsweetened) in to work.granola raspberries and yogurtI just love that cereal and it was perfect with the raspberries and yogurt.Breakfast 28-4-14 Lunch was a combination of Saturday evening’s stir fried rice and prawns and Sunday’s bulgar wheat with roasted vegetables.lunch 28-4-14 2 We have a microwave at work which I rarely use but it was handy today.  I didn’t heat the prawns in the microwave as I was worried they may turn rubbery.  Instead I poked them in to the rice as soon as it came out of the microwave and they became warm in the steam.  It was very good and reheated perfectly.lunch 28-4-14 1 For supper we had bolognaise sauce which was full of veggies.  Harvey had his with spaghetti and I had mine with asparagus which I steamed over the pan cooking the pasta.asparagus and bolognaise It was a modest sized bowl of bolognaise and I was still peckish afterwards so I had 2 Dr Karg’s with Cambazola (a delicious cheese, like a Brie with blue threads in it).2 Karg's

So I am pleased with today as I didn’t break any of the week 1 ‘I Quit Sugar’ rules.   All my food was homemade (apart from the crackers), nutritous and delicious.

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 :-)
