Juice and Bubbles

I enjoyed eating today so much and only wanted healthy foods.  I wanted to eat fruits and veggies and fish.  Yes, fish, it was definitely a fish day.

I began well again with a juice and a bowl of fruit.  I picked up a 500ml bottle of ‘Green Clean’ and a bowl of pineapple, mango and raspberries from Pure and made myself a green tea.breakfast 16-9 The Green Clean is not for the faint hearted and I didn’t like it much.  It was made with fennel, carrot, spinach and celery but just tasted of fennel.  Too strong for me.  I did enjoy the fruit pot though.go green breakfast 16-9 At lunch time I walked over to Wholefoods Market at Piccadilly Circus and bought the most amazing salad.  You choose your own from the salad bar and then pay by weight.  It had salmon, tuna, Feta cheese, pecans, humous and black beans for protein and loads of vegetables.  Name a vegetable and it could have been in here.  It was a modest sized container so no danger of overeating and I loved every mouthful of it.Wholefoods Salad 16-9 Instead of rushing back to the office like I usually do I took 20 minutes to sit and eat in leisure.  I sat just there, under the tree.set under treeI decided to walk back along a different street to usual and walked along Old Compton Street.  I will try this Japanese cafe one day as I am developing rather a taste for green tea.
Kirazu I walked past several bubble tea places and I have no idea what that is so there’s something else to go and investigate  one day.Bubble Tea sign I was really pleased to see several juicing bars on the street.  Juice Tonic and Juice Tonic Joe & The Juice.  So happy to see these places here as it will make replacing one meal a day with juice so much easier.Joe & The Juice I will bring Lara and Harvey along here next time they come up to London too.  My cup cake loving daughter would like Muriel’s Kitchen, or Patisserie Valerie or Paul’s Bakery which are along the same street.Muriel's Kitchen Harvey would want to go to Herman ze German as he loves Frankfurters.Herman ze German They would both enjoy a burger in here too.Ed's Another bubble tea place – what is that?Moo Boo bubble tea I sipped water all afternoon and herbal tea.  The chap I sit next to bought me a Monmouth coffee and I resisted it 🙂  I am trying to avoid caffeinated tea and coffee.

At home I made a really simple supper of a crab salad.crab salad 16-9 2Made with rocket, lamb’s lettuce, sugar snap peas, 100g crab, 2 tbsp mayonnaise and red grapes.  It was a quick and easy and healthy supper.

I am pleased with how well I did today and inspired to keep going tomorrow.

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 :-)

    Keep up the great diligence Zoe. Bubble Teas usually have Tapioca balls in the teas or fruit drink you get.
