The Breakfast Club

My favourite time of the day is morning and I think my favourite meal time is breakfast.  I love the (usual) freshness of the morning air, the peace and quiet, the promise of the day ahead.  Breakfast is often simple and for me lately, full of fruit which I love and accompanied by a decent coffee.  I am trying to only have one a day and I make it a good one.

I went to London early this morning as I had to be in the office by 7:30 am to get set up for the day and then meet the team for breakfast.

We met at The Breakfast Club in Soho.  They have other locations and I recommend you try them out if you have one near you.

TBC locationsWe were being treated by Josh and Phoebe who wanted to thank us all for helping them pass their probation which was very generous of them.  TBC had an extensive menu; as well as this page there was another page with juices, smoothies and drinks.

TBC menu I had a ‘Green is Good’ and it was very good.Green is good This is a laid back, easy going, relaxed cafe.  The food was fresh and delicious, served quickly by friendly and efficient staff and the decor was perfect for a cheery morning meal.  The Breakfast Club bar The wall was covered in people’s doodles, pictures, cards etc.  The Breakfast Club wall The coffee was pretty good.  Unfortunately I have been spoilt by having Monmouth or Timberyard coffees for so long now and nothing else comes close but this was a good soya milk latte.soy milk latte BC I also had a fruit salad and stupidly forgot to check whether it came with any dairy.  It did have some yogurt on top which was annoying but it wasn’t much and as I hadn’t asked first, I ate it.  The fruit salad was a really good portion of strawberries, raspberries, apple,  grapes and pineapple.  I enjoyed everything and I will definitely come here again.I heart BC Shame we cant do this every day.Eating at the Breakfast Club If you go, get there for 8am as by half past there was quite a queue outside!P O and Z I took a salad in for lunch and a bunch of red grapes.salad 30-4-15 1 Cucumber, celery, cherry tomatoes, red pepper, romaine lettuce, grapes and a large dollop of the cashew, pecan and dried apricot cream I made on Tuesday.salad 30-4-15 Tofu for supper.  I tried a new brand and it was good.  I liked the flavour and the texture was firm without being watery.marinated tofu box I baked a sweet potato and roasted a red pepper, a large courgette and a brown onion with a little olive oil.  I wanted the courgette to have a crispy coating so after stirring some olive oil in to the veggies, I dipped the courgette pieces in to gram flour.  I was hoping for a soft middle and a crispy outside, just like the okra fingers Dishoom serves.veg on tray 30-4-15 5 minutes before I estimated the veggies were ready, I added a block of the tofu which I chopped in to squares.tray of veg 30-4-15 The courgette was good.  Not as crispy as Dishoom’s okra but very good nevertheless.courgettes with gram flour A simple and satisfying supper.dinner 30-4-15

Apart from the yogurt, this was another whole food and plant-based day which I enjoyed very much.

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 :-)

    I enjoy breakfast also. I focus on eating mostly fresh fruits and occasionally oatmeal and always with a good pressed cup of coffee!
