In To December

So here we are, in to December already!

I worked from home today so I was able to make myself a smoothie for breakfast.  I am still trying to get rid of my cold which is sitting stubbornly in my chest so I am packing in as many nutrients as I can.tropical purple smoothie This beautiful smoothie was made with frozen blueberries, banana, pineapple and papaya, blended with Tahini and coconut yogurt then garnished with fresh papaya.  It tasted sweet and coconutty and completely lovely.tropical smoothie and papaya For lunch I made a stir fry from bits and pieces that needed using up in the fridge.stir fry ingredients I fried the onion, then aded the broccoli, red pepper, cavolo nero and mushrooms.  When they were nearly cooked I added the rice, the eggs which I had whisked with some soy sauce and some shredded roast pork. stir fry and cholulah Served with Chlolula, a hot sauce and garnished with fresh chilli and coriander.  One of my favourite, quick and easy snacky meals.lunch 4-12-14 I then had a bowl of ice cream.  I have no idea why but I did!ice-cream I then had 2 little circles of this wonderful ‘Christmas Tree’ which Harvey made at school.  It was fantastic and he had even made the pastry from scratch!  The base, which you can’t see, was sticky with a sugary and dried fruit concoction.  It was really good and I was very proud of the Little Fella.Harvey's baked treeHe chose tacos for dinner.taco supper I enjoyed mine too 🙂tacos 4-12-14I prefer the taco shells crushed with the beef, veggies and cheese on top as it is easier to eat that way.

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 :-)
