Vegetable Sushi

I made a very green and very drinkable smoothie for breakfast this sunny morning.  3 bananas, 2 kiwis, half a large bag of spinach and a cup of coconut milk.

smoothie ingredients spinach I went to Wholefoods at lunch time to buy some fruit.  Wholefoods is expensive but some of their products, such as mangoes, are so superior to the supermarkets I feel I can justify the cost.  Wholefoods mangoes are properly ripe, sweet and juicy. Wholefoods champagne mango I fancied some sushi for lunch; I went to Wasabi and bought a vegetable box.  I have never had one before and it was a good choice.veg sushi wasabi box etiquette I really enjoyed it.Wasabi veggie box In the afternoon I had 2 apples.2 apples on desk I bought some strawberries in Wholefoods.  These were for Harvey rather than me.  He likes them with a little bit of coconut sugar.strawberries and coconut I made a very simple supper.  I mashed a ripe avocado with some lime juice, which I ate with cherry tomatoes, cucumber and lots of coriander.dinner prep I served the avocado, tomatoes and cucumber with some brown Basmati rice, peas and carrots.rice and veg I like warm food and raw cold food mixed together.dinner 12-5 This was a quick and easy meal to prepare and simple and satisfying to eat.dinner 12-5-15

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 :-)
