Lots of Raw

I slept better, felt better and ate better!  Sounds like a simple chain of events to me.

Black coffee, an apple, an orange, some granola and coconut yogurt plus 2 Brazil nuts set me up until lunch time.breakfast 13-1-15 At lunch time I braved the rain – it was sunny all morning and then rained throughout lunch time! – and walked to Wholefoods Market.  I did have to buy one of these lovely lettuces.WFM green stuff I also bought a box of mixed sprouts.WFM sprouts For lunch I had a box of salads.  A little bit of thissalads 13-1-15 2 and a little bit of that.salad 13-1-15 Yummy.WFM salad 13-1-15 These pretty tulips brightened up an otherwise wet and dull walk back to the office.tulips in box At dinner time I was not in the mood for cooking anything or even making anything too time consuming so I chopped up some veggies, dipped them in to some humous and that was that!humous crudites

I might go crazy and have a Rooibos tea and then an early night.

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 :-)

    Crikey, you will disappear if you keep going like that. Today I had a black coffee for breakfast, a mug of tomato and quinoa soup and an orange and pomegranate salad for lunch and then I came across a box of chocolate caramels and it went downhill from there! I’ve just eaten Halibut and mashed potato and a big glass of wine. Oh dear!

    • Well as you can see, I am very easily tempted! I have realised that I need to eat more quantity of high quality food i.e. fruits and vegetables. I am following a plan which urges you to eat sufficient bulk of plant foods so you dont feel hungry and so dont dive in to the chocolates! I am finding it does work unless I have temptation placed in front of me!
