Vegan Junk Food

Food today needed to be kept simple.  I was tired today after a bad nights sleep but I was very busy so apart from breakfast which I took to work, I ate convenience food.

 Mango, papaya and black grapes for breakfast.  Sweet, juicey and really yummy.  

For lunch I went to Chipotle, a Mexican fast food eaterie, located conveniently close to the office.  I usually order this ‘Veggie Bowl’.  You have various choices as you fill your bowl: brown or white rice, brown or black beans, vegetables or grilled meats etc.  I had brown rice, brown and black beans, roasted peppers, mild tomato salsa, sweet corn salsa, guacamole and lettuce.  Plus a side of tortilla chips.   I ike the brown bags the food is served in, rather than plastic.This does make a  tasty and easy lunch with a good variety of veggies and plenty of flavour We had soup for supper, half the pot each.  Yes, from a pot rather than homemade but tired people who work full time have to cheat sometimes.   

 With hot dogs !!  Harvey loves frankfurters so I was interested to try these to see how they compared.  We were both very impressed.  Some vegan substitutes, mainly the ‘cheese’, is nothing like the real thing.  But these hot dogs were actually very good.   

We had them in a wholemeal wrap with mustard, ketchup and fried onions with a mug of lentil soup


I am not claiming this is health food but it is much healthier then the fat filled made from the corpse of a murdered animal alternative.

Sipping a mug of camomile tea now and planning an early night.

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 :-)
