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 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 :-)
