So Many Veggies

I have eaten so many veggies today and I feel really good about that.

Some fruit today too.  Over the course of the day I munched my way through 4 apples and about 8 dates.2 apples red and yekkow At lunch time I went back to Food For Thought, hoping to find more of that yummy shepherdess pie I had yesterday.Iranian stew 2 It wasn’t on the menu today so instead I had this ‘Iranian Stew’ which was their hot vegan offering.  It was really good.FFT Iranian stew I had it with 2 salads.FFT salad 2 It was all excellent.FFT salad Lots more veggies for dinner.  I str fried an aubergine, leeks, broccoli, cauliflower and mushrooms in coconut oil.vegetables frying Added a can of light coconut milk and a large spoonful of red Thai curry paste.coconut and oil and paste Garnished with mint and coriander it made a quick to cook and satisfying supper.coconut veg curry

Thank you to all those of you who have sent me comments about dry skin/eczema/allergic reactions you have had.  It is not unusual it would seem.  I feel encouraged that I need to persevere to isolate what it is that is triggering this reaction and unless it is coconuts, I did well today on an allergy friendly diet as I had no fish, shellfish, gluten, grains, eggs, dairy, citrus, nuts or seeds.  I really enjoyed everything I ate too 🙂

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 :-)
