Takeaway-Tastic

I had four takeaways today.

1. A leftover pancake with coconut yogurt, pomegranate and 2 small bananas

breakfast 19-1-15 The pancakes are better hot but they worked very well in this concoction.  It was a bit like having cake for breakfast 🙂pomegranate and pancake 2. Pink salad with sproutslunch 19-1-15 This was an excellent takeaway and it tasted just as good today as yesterday.pink salad 19-1-15 3. Parsnip soup.  I made this in December and froze a portion which I took to work.  The soup froze really well.  I dislike using a microwave though but made an exception today.parsnip soup on desk 4. A wrap filled with humous, lettuce, tomato and falafel.  This used up the last of the bread dough I made last weekend.  It would be fair to say it was past its best and it was yeasty but still edible.supper 19-1-15 I am going to make another batch of that dough this weekend and freeze it in to individual portions as this was such a quick and easy supper to make after a long day at work.  It took about 15 minutes from me thinking about it to sitting down and eating it.  While the falafels heated through in the oven and the wrap was cooking I had time to unload the dishwasher and some other errands.  There is very little to wash up either so I am definitely making these again.falafel and wrap

So my 4 takeaways or probably I should say leftovers.  All homemade, all whole-food, lots of plants and all very tasty.

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 :-)

    I love the leftover pancake recipe idea! Were they just regular pancakes?

    • Hello Urban Mumble – what a great name 👍
      The pancake recipe is on the post I blogged in Saturday or look them
      Up on the recipes page. They are multigrain pancakes from the Forks Over Knives recipe book. They are vegan, easy to make and completely delicious.
      Thanks for stopping by my blog 😃
