Sometimes I Don’t Mind Mondays

I always feel really tired on a Monday but today I didn’t feel as tired as usual.  My itchy rash gradually cleared up towards the end of last week and was gone by Sunday so it was a relief to go to work and not feel the need to hide my face.  In fact the colleague I sit next to commented it was nice to have me back without my “boils and warts” !!!!  Charming but I am pleased to be back to normal.  Work was ok and I ate lots and lots and lots of plants today.

I brought breakfast in from home and it tasted much better than this photo makes it look.  Chia seeds in soya milk with coconut yogurt, blueberries and a banana.

breakfast 26-1-15 I brought lunch in too.lunch 26-1-15 2 Left over roasted courgettes, peppers and butternut squash from last night’s dinner with chickpeas, cucumber, tomatoes and celery.lunch 26-1-15 1 Not bad at all.lunch 26-1-15 Supper was very left over Bombay potato and spinach daal.  When I say “very left over”, it was left over from 2 weekends ago.  I seem to have inherited my Father’s disregard for a use by date and age of a food and instead check it for mould or a bad smell.  If neither of those are in evidence then it is fit for eating.  I had it with some stir fried (in coconut oil) cabbage, kale, onions and mushrooms.  The blob on top is some lime pepper jellyveg and potatoes It tasted fine.bombay potatoes and daal

So another day of good eating is behind me.  I am really pleased that I am getting in to the habit of eating so much plant-food, taking what I need in to work and enjoying it.  I rarely need a snack between meals which is a good sign as I must be balancing my blood sugar with these vegan meals of mine.  I am also saving money by taking food in rather than eating out all the time.  So a pretty good Monday and I am looking forward to Tuesday.

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 :-)
