International Hummus Day

I saw today, thanks to my chum Lucy, that it is the 4th International Hummus Day.  I had never heard of such a thing before and coincidentally, I had hummus today, which I rarely eat.  That was before I knew it was hummus day.

I took most of my food in to work with me today.  I had one of the champagne mangos I bought yesterday (minus the large slice Harvey had).

I am pleased I ate well today because the office was filled with cookies and cakes today but I resisted them all, even though some were left on my desk !!!!!

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 :-)

    Sorry you didn’t like the smoked hummus. I’ve only tried smoked hummus once, it was a different (very expensive!) brand from Whole Foods which we got as a special treat and I thought it was delicious. Then again, I pretty much like anything smoked, but it might be worth giving a different brand a shot if you see it again.

    Happy International Hummus Day! 😀
