Itchy and Scratchy

The rash is back and I am itchy and scratchy all over and feeling just a little bit sorry for myself.  So please excuse me for being brief today.

Breakfast was half of a Galia melon and a whole canteloupe melon.  377 calories.

2 melon I had a 2 course lunch.  First I had a huge salad made from leftovers from yesterday’s lunch.  There was quite a lot of avocado in here, probably half an avocado plus courgettes, carrots, cucumbers and mixed leaves.  316 calories.salad 16-3-15 1 Followed by 2 nectarines and black grapes.  The nectarines are the perfectly ripe ones from M&S and they were very edible.  The grapes, also from M&S, were gorgeous.  Very sweet, juicey and a strong flavour.  I ended up eating the entire punnet as they tasted so good.  320 calories.nectrines and grapes This looks incredibly boring but I wasn’t in the mood for adding anything or making it look prettier.  It tasted wonderful and was perfect comfort food.  4 bananas, cocoa powder, 2 tbsp peanut butter and a splash of soya milk.  687 calories of comfort food bliss.chocolate bananas

I ate all that plus had a soya milk latte and a Medjool date.  226 calories.

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 :-)

    You did well for having such a miserable itchy day. Do you know if it was something you ate yesterday for Mother’s Day?

    Hi Zoe, I have been following your blog for a couple of years now and really enjoy it. Just a thought but both my daughter and I are allergic to pineapple which gives us an itchy rash. We have only just discovered the cause. I noted that you had pineapple in your pictures on the Sunday and had the rash on the Monday – possibly just a coincidence?

    Best wishes


    • Hi Katrina, thank you for reading my blog and commenting. I was checked for pineapple and it was clear. My problems are lemons, macadamia and hazelnuts and yeast. Plus feathers and grass pollen. So you were right that the rash was caused by an allergy. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.

    I would certainly not discount it Zoe. I am hoping it is wrong, but …
