Vegan Junk Food

Vegan Food is not always healthy!  Breakfast was though; I made a smoothie with bananas, blackberries and a splash of almond milk.

Blue skies, sunshine and crisp, fresh air – makes you feel good and helps get those 10,000 steps in.dogs in woods waterfalls in woodsI snacked on an apple mid afternoon.  I had missed lunch but was full up from all that Bombay Mix.  I ate more than half that large bag !!

At least it was vegan and I did a lovely walk.

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 :-)
