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 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 :-)

    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! 😀
