This weekend I took a mini-vacation and enjoyed some time away, by the sea, with a friend. I made food to take with me, lots of vegan food but it wasn’t 1940s…I decided that it was important to have a proper break in all aspects.
I made a tofu and spinach salad topped with a mango thai dressing, a mango and coconut thai curry with spiced rice (it also had egg plant and zucchini and LOTS of coconut cream) and finally, to finish, a lemon and poppy seed vegan cheesecake.
(this was a delicious recipe. I added a whole lemon zest to the topping and an extra spoonful of agave nectar to the topping too, to mask the taste of the soy cream (ikk).. recipe can be found here)
In addition there were organic corn chips with black beans and a hummus dip..
And then there was wine.. lots of wine… lots and lots of wine.
Feeling refreshed after having such a nice break, it was time to face the music this morning and i jumped on the weighing scales. 5 lbs on…… ( I now weigh 242lbs on my home scale). Possibly a temporary weight gain but nevertheless.
So this morning I’m all 1940’d up and raring to go. This is just a blip… however it now means I have to lose 43 lbs in 13 weeks to get to my goal within the year. I LOVE a challenge 🙂
Have a great day!!
Hopefully just water and sodium and you will have lost this and some extra next week 🙂
Temporary, I’m sure! Carry on the Great Experiment!
I am sure you will do it! However I will be pretty sad if you don’t keep up the site etc 😦
Thanks Louise…Oh I’ll do it!! I won’t fail!! 🙂 And I intend to develop something really quite exciting based on the experiment 🙂 C xxxx
You can do it Carolyn. Just remember, what’s the mantra?…
Keep Calm and Carry On
Thank you so much for sharing. So yummy blog! I have researched much as I am not convinced that weight loss surgery is my option, and I am glad that I found something that saved me from the surgical knife cost and complications as well as irreversible damage. Roca Labs gastric bypass no surgery has helped me loss 43 lbs and still counting… I am glad that I am winning back a healthy weight. I am sharing this to let others know that there is an alternative to surgery and a healthy approach to weight problem.
Go you! Keep up the good work. That cheesecake looks awesome.
