My courgettes are homegrown from my veg patch. Very proud!
Slow cook the beef mince together with chopped onions, garlic, tomato passata and seasoning in a slow cooker for a few hours before you’re ready to assemble and eat. The juices should all have reduced so the mince os browned and sauce is reduced and thickened.
Shallow fry the courgettes very quickly in a little olive oil so they remain firm
Add the mince mixture to your serving of courgetti spaghetti and grate a generous portion of Parmesan cheese over the top.
Spiralize the courgettes.
Then saute in coconut oil or olive oil some onion, garlic, chopped red chillies, adding salt and pepper until soft and translucent.
Then finally add the spiralized courgettes, courgette flowers, and crab meat. This only needs cooking quickly as you dont want it to go too soft or mushy.
Finish off with some parsley.
A quick and easy low csrb and protein healthy meal!
Start your day with a protein and low carb breakfast for maintaing energy levels throughout the morning. Having fruit or fruit juice on its own turns straight to sugar. If you want fruit then I suggest eating it with some protein such as Greek yoghurt or walnuts. This helps stop the fruit turning straight to sugar and giving you a false sugar energy high and low.
Wait to have your breakfast or first meal of the day at least 12 hours after your last meal of the previous day. This will help sustain weightloss and give your digestive system a rest.
Poached eggs with avocado, crispy bacon, tomatos and a swirl of balsamic vinegar.
Appetising and appealing food on a plate can be comprised of healthy low carb and protein ingredients. Including some good fats in your diet is better than eating low and no fat, as it can actually help your weightloss and help you feel satisfied.
The hormonal and metabolic benefits of eating more fat are great, but one of the best benefits might be the satiating effects of fat. Nothing is worse than eating a lower-calorie diet that leaves your hungry all the time. This is traditionally a huge problem in diets which deny you foods with a higher fat content such as nuts, fatty fish, cheese, and avocado.
Satiating fat leaves you feeling full. When the fat you eat hits your small intestine, it sets off a cascade of signals which includes the release of hormones such as CCK and PYY. These two hormones play a major role in appetite regulation and satiety; they leave you feeling full and satisfied. The more satiated you are, the less likely that you’re going to sneak in snacks between meals or pile on a second helping.
So for a weekend brunch I have cooked crispy free range streaky bacon, organic scrambled egg in a little organic salted butter, wilted spinach, baby Isle of Wight tomatoes, avocado, with some chopped red chillies.
And an Expresso coffee.
Have a lovely weekend.
Place kale first in a baking dish and lay a boned and filleted wild sea bass fillet on the top. I also added some fennel.
The fish is seasoned with olive oil salt pepper and lemon.
The kale is also sprinkled with olive oil or if you wish, coconut oil.
Bake for about 15 minutes.
A delicious, low carb and healthy meal!
