I Ate A Big Mac

I ate a Big Mac today, I really did and it was amazing.

For breakfast I went to Pure and had a small bottle of ‘Get Vit’ smoothie and a portion of porridge with seeds on top.  The Get Vit contains Kiwi, spinach, apple, pear and lime.  It is delicious and is promoted as being banana free so I chose it because it was green and contained spinach and because I hoped it would be low sugar.  It actually contains 4 teaspoons of sugar per small bottle (250ml) so not that low after all!

Calorie count; Get Vit (86) + porridge (277) + Honey (115) + seeds (494).  I am amazed at the calories in the seeds.Pure Get Vit and porridge

I went back to Pure for lunch too because it is close to the office and they sell a great range of salads.   I chose the Big Mack !

Pure Big Mack It was awesome!  I am definitely having that again although it does have a high calorie count – 778 (when eaten with the dressing like I did).  I would have saved 200 calories if I had not eaten the dressing.Big Mack Salad At home for supper I picked 4 types of salad leaves from the garden.leaves from garden Which I ate with roasted vegetables, Feta cheese and some grapes.Dinner 24-6-14

So a healthy day in terms of lots of vegetables and oily fish with no flour products or added sugar.  But surprisingly high in calories.  I should leave out the juice and salad dressing.

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 :-)
