Back To Bankside

One of my food rules is to make sure we include fruits or vegetables with every meal, including breakfast.  This did meet a lot of resistance to begin with and occasionally still does.  But I am winning and usually the plant food is eaten now without comment, as was the case today.  This morning Harvey and Lara had bacon sandwiches with plum and blueberries on the side.

plum and blueberries I declined the bacon sandwich  and went for a smoothie made with a plum, blueberries, 2 bananas and 1 tbsp Tahini, garnished with a fig.  It was very enjoyable.Smoothie bowl I had let Harvey down this weekend.  We were meant to be visiting his God-Father for a long weekend but I have to work tomorrow so we can’t go.  So he chose the day’s activity and we went up to London to The London Dungeon, one of his favourite places.   We all went and it was a fun day out.The London Dungeon After being scared/amused/interested, in equal measure, we strolled along the Southbank.  The London Dungeons are opposite the Houses of Parliament.Westminster from South Bank They are next to the London Eye which is an incredible structure and one you can appreciate from close up.London Eye structure We were out of the London Dungeons by 12:30 so we strolled along SouthBank thinking about where to have lunch.  NT graffitti I rather like this urban area with its graffitti art which was full of skateboarders and scooters.graffiti under NT We didn’t have a SNOG but I liked the look of the pink bus.SNOG pink bus I haven’t strolled along the South Bank  for a long time and I really enjoyed it today.NT Welcome lady statue I took us to Albion which I blogged about several times when I worked in this area earlier this year.

Slimming World was a bit of a distant memory! It was a delicious lunch and worth every calorie!

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 :-)
