Some Good Some Bad

Some good eating recently, some bad and a reasonable amount of exercise.

raw and dirty beetroot I checked to make sure and apparently you can eat the stalks and the leaves.clean beetroot This one was actually a bit too big and had gone slightly woody so I decided to juice it.  Well, I juiced half of it.beetroot from garden Half a beetroot, quarter of a pineapple, basil, ginger, lemon and beetroot leaves and stalks.beetroot juice ingredients Stunning colour and an earthy flavour which was pleasant enough.beetroot juice 23-7 i ate some more beetroot leaves with courgette and basil, all just picked.basil chard Stir fried with brown basmati rice, broccoli, mushrooms and red pepper .chopped veg 23-7 A simple and delicious lunch.lunch 23-7 This morning I made another juice for breakfast, using up some of the produce I had in the fridge; apple, lime, grapes, cucumber, carrots, cabbage and celery.juice ingredients 24-7 Very refreshing.juice 24-7 Salad for lunch made with 2 types of lettuce from the garden and another courgette.2 lettuce and courgette Harvey does very well eating vegetables.  He had salad, stir fried rice and vegetables and fish fingers with ketchup.Harvey lunch 24-7 I had lots of salad and stir fried rice and veggies with pine nuts.lunch 24-7-14 2 lunch 24-7-14 1 So that was the good.  Yesterday for supper I had 2 hot dogs at the tennis club BBQ and tonight I had egg mayonnaise wraps and a bag of Mini Cheddars.  That was the bad.  Not as disastrous as some bad eats such as the bag of sweets and ice cream I had at the cinema on Tuesday (100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window – very enjoyable).

This evening Harvey went to a party in Battle so I decided to pop over to Bexhill.rotunda and red hot poker I don’t think I have ever been here before.Bexhill 2 I had a fancy to see the sea as it was yet another warm and sunny evening.Bexhill 1 This is the De La Warr Pavilion ( http://www.dlwp.com ) which was built in 1935.  Today it is home to an art exhibition and there is an auditorium where various shows are performed.  I would like to go inside but it was closed.

Apart from the pavilion, I didn’t see anything else to commend Bexhill but I may visit again to see inside the building.  Next time I will have a walk along the beach too.

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 :-)
