I always seem to sleep badly on a Sunday night – why is that?
Luckily I had my wits about me last night and I made a chia pudding to take in to work. Half a cup of raw sprouted oats, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 2 heaped tbsp Co Yo and almond milk, stirred and left in the fridge. In the morning I added a fresh mango. I love this. Sweet and juicy fruit and creamy coconutty chia pudding makes a great start to the day. Lunch was a salad bowl from wholefoods. I should have bought a bigger one because I still felt hungry afterwards. I had some green tea and cashews. Then some popcorn and 2 apples. This burnt offering was supper. Disasterama! It was meant to be buffalo style cauliflower which I was really looking forward to making but my ‘batter’ slipped off and the cauliflower burnt. I was so disappointed. However, the bits that aren’t burnt tasted good so I shall tweak the recipe and have another go another day.
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 :-)

Too bad about the cauliflower! Sleep well tonight.
I am going to make it again but turn the oven down! I can imagine the taste of it and want to create it. There are quite a few recipes on the internet and they look so good.
