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 a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. 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 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. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. 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!
