My year to date weight loss is 16 pounds. I only lost 1 pound this week but was expecting to have lost far more so that was a little disappointing but I have at least lost something each of the 5 weeks we have had this year.
Today’s goal was to eat more raw food because while I have been sticking to my vegan eating plan this week, I have not eaten enough raw fruits and veggies. I did quite well with more raw today, particularly since it was so cold when it is more tempting to have warm comforting food.
I began with a juice made from spring greens, an apple, 2 kiwis and 2 pink grapefruits. Very drinkable. I still felt hungry so I made a smoothie with 2 bananas, some frozen raspberries, 1 heaped tbsp of tahini, 1 tbsp acai, protein powder and some coconut water. Blended for ages until it was super smooth.Smoothie perfection. I do think banana, raspberries and tahini are a sublime combination.
I was in Tunbridge Wells this afternoon with some time to kill before afternoon tea. I was going to pack a salad to eat but I was not that organised so I popped in to a cafe I had not seen before called Stephanie’s on Camden Road.
I was pleased to see a vegan offering on the menu and even more pleased that it tasted good. It was a warm potato, bean and sundried tomato salad with spinach and a balsamic dressing. It was very good. My second cafe was Basil which is wonderful. I met Sally at the Basil on Lime Hill Road. There are 2 Basils in RTW; the other one is on St John’s Road and I had tea there last Saturday with Lucy when I treated myself to a chocolate covered flapjack. Today I had another one because it is definitely worth every calorie! With a soy milk latte. So not vegan, not plant food and not whole food but too good to resist. Thank you for visiting Sally. Supper was half a pizza made with tomato sauce and topped with onions, red pepper and mushrooms served with a huge salad.
So lots of raw food and all good apart from a naughty treat.
Zoe your body was probably getting rid of a lot of water weight from the Seasonal Eating during the holidays. So, one more pound gone is a good thing. You had another great day. Congratulations on such a great 2015 with your eating.
Thank you Laura. I am always happy with any loss, no matter how small. I was only disappointed because I was expecting a bigger loss based on the scales at home but I will go with the more reliable ones at the gymn.
