Vegan Snacking

Doesn’t Monday come round quickly?  I do wish we could have a 3 day weekend so I could have a day to myself at home.

I was well organised for eating healthily today and did well with my eating but was too busy to do any exercise.  I didn’t even go out at lunch time which is one disadvantage of taking your own food in.

 Breakfast was a mango and an orange with …  A bunch of grapes.
For lunch I had a huge bowl of salad.  Tomatoes from the garden with cucumber, carrot and celery on top of roasted peppers, brown basmati rice and the salsa I made yesterday from avocado, tomato, red onion and sweet corn.  I really enjoyed this and will make it again.
 Supper was really easy too as it was left over rice and the lentil, spinach and ginger curry I had made yesterday. It is so nice to come home and have dinner ready and just waiting to be heated up.  I also added some steamed carrots and peas, to pack in more veggies and to make the portions bigger as we both felt hungry.

  I did have two snack attacks today.  This afternoon at work I felt peckish so I had an apple and some popcorn.
 Harvey wanted ice-cream after dinner so I made some!  This was lovely and was all natural.  Frozen bananas, cocoa powder, coconut and some almond milk.  It did taste like chocolate and coconut use-cream and Harvey couldn’t believe I hadn’t put any sugar in it !  

I also resisted coffee and tea and instead drank water and herbal tea today.   I am very pleased with how I ate today and just need to try and make sure I do the same again tomorrow plus some exercise.

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 :-)

  1. That ice cream looks delicious! I was just thinking of making a vegan cherry chocolate ice cream that also uses banana as the base so it was funny that you posted this at the same time. Will have to try this too one day!
