Veganuary At The Pavilion Restaurant

What a beautiful day we had today in Hastings!  Bright blue sky, sunshine, no cold wind and, for this time of year, mild temperature.  Such a day can not be wasted inside so we set off.  We took Milton for a walk in the Country Park and as a bonus, bumped in to two of our neighbours, Tom and Marie, so walked with them.  It was glorious up there.IMG_4011I knew, thanks to a local Facebook site, that the Pavilion Restaurant on Hastings pier had a special vegan menu for Veganuary so we headed there for lunch.IMG_4012I always enjoy walking along the St.Leonards and Hastings’ promenades.IMG_4016The Pavilion Restaurant is near the entrance to the pier.  I had never been in before but will definitely be going again.

IMG_4034Thank you for supporting veganuary.IMG_4032I am not sure why I have not been in here before.IMG_4020It was much nicer than I expected and a very pleasant place to sit and have a drink or food.IMG_4021We had both.  Soya milk latte for me.

IMG_4022I knew I was going to have the ‘Fish’ and chips because that had been recommended.  I actually want to try everything on here.IMG_4017I also had the cauliflower salad which I really liked but was not sure about the gloopy blobs of dressing.  The dressing texture was a bit wallpaper pastey and the flavours indistinct;  a vinaigrette would have been better.  But all the salad ingredients were really good and I enjoyed it.IMG_4027The ‘fish’ and chips.  WOW.  WOW.  WOW.  Amazing.  Wrapping the tofu in seaweed makes it taste as if it’s from the sea.  The tartare sauce was good.  And the chips.  Oh my, some of the best I have ever had anywhere.  Obviously not the best choice for a diet but a lovely treat and this was my only meal of the day as I fasted before and afterwards.IMG_4024I highly recommend the tofu ‘fish’.  And the chips.  Really excellent.

I did leave a piece of ‘fish’ and some chips because I was full.  I could easily have eaten them but I didn’t need them.

After a really lovely lunch we walked along to the Old Town as we had a birthday present to buy for someone special.  It’s always a pleasure, pottering about in the Old Town.  These cute plants were for sale at Reste on George Street.IMG_4044Time to head home.IMG_4046

IMG_4049I fasted for most of today and have walked 13,666 steps and I am happy with that.




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 :-)
