Chips Are Vegan

We woke up to a very cold and frosty but bright and sunny morning.  I do love a sunny morning.  I also love it when the little fella sleeps in beyond 7 am and when I have a fab friend staying so all was well with the world when I woke up.  Being an emotional over eater, that also means it is easier for me to make sensible food choices, which I did – apart from some chocolate. I made the men folk a sausage and egg bap with a freshly squeezed juice but I just consumed plants for breakfast.

I began the day with a large juice made with orange, apple, cucumber, carrot, persimmon and fennel.orange coloured juice Followed by a lovely smoothie made with 2 frozen bananas, a kiwi fruit, 1 tsp blue-green algae and coconut water, topped with cacao nibs.  It made 2 of this size and I enjoyed them both.green nana ice-cream We had a lovely walk over the road.moss and wood stack green moss BJ and H in woods It was very muddy!muddy feet A snack of humous and celery kept me going until lunch time.houmous and celery When I made a stir fry with noodles.SOBA needlesBroccoli, cauliflower, peppers, onions and mushrooms, stir fried in coconut oil.

Unfortunately so did a bar of dark chocolate with orange.  I ate all 100 g of it which was over 500 calories 😦fire on a SundayI enjoyed the chocolate though, and some time spent painting.  What a lovely lazy Sunday.painting and fielight Super was very simple.  Chips are vegan, as are many other unhealthy foods.  I don’t think home made chips are too bad though as I only used a little bit of oil and a just a pinch of salt.  Served with guacamole which I made with 1 avocado and a large tomato, very finely chopped and mashed.chips and guacamole home made chips Guacamole with coriander

Apart from the chocolate, a healthy and diet friendly day of eating with some exercise.

 

 

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 :-)
