Today’s Stripes

Today's Stripes. 
Sloppy, Sunday comfy dressing. .
My posts are always non-filtered and exactly how I look that day. .
It shouldn't be necessary to filter, Facetune, or create a social media enhanced perfect version of yourself. .
NO celebrity or client I have ever styled or dressed for the Red Carpet has had a perfect body or skin.  You can always aspire to be the best version of yourself but your imperfections are what make you unique.
.
Be confident enough in your own self-image and body-image to not judge or compare yourself to others, especially others' fitered Instagram posts. They're not real.
.
Tshirt dress: Primark
Sweater: Zadig and Voltaire 
Metallic trainers: Superga

Sunday breakfast

Sunday breakfast.
.
Poached eggs and smashed avocado on a slice of granary toast, with chopped chillies to sprinkle on top snd some watercress snd spinach leaves. 
A hot water with a slice of lemon to start and an Expresso to finish. 
Sunday is one of the few days I have a slice of toast treat. The rest of the week is wheat free as much as possible. A mostly wheat and grain free lifestyle helps me to keep at an even weight and not bloat.
Also leaving a minimum of 12 hours from my last meal of the previous evening to the next day breakfast or first meal of the day gives the digestive system a rest for good gut health.

Sun, sea and seafood

Sun, sea and seafood.
.
The last day of an Indian Summer with lunch by the sea with a healthy but delicious Asian fusion mix of scallop, seabass and tempura prawn on a bed of vegetables, noodles and peanuts.
.
It's so easy to eat healthily when it's presented beautifully and tastes delcious.
Its all about the flavours.
.
Even when you are cooking at home, however simple or basic the recipe or meal, if you take a bit of extra care and time to make it look appetising on the plate, you will feel more satisfied on a smaller portion.
You will crave less of the unhealthy sugary carb laden foods which give high/low spikes to your blood sugar and energy levels.
