Thank you @jamiebuckley5234 for the best dance fitness class ever with the funniest running commentary.
Laughter and dance are the best feelgood combination even in tropical temperatures and no aircon as the class is in the local community centre.

My wheat free low carb and protein breakfast

My wheat free low carb and protein breakfast.

The chef in the cafe who cooked breakfast this morning was obviously feeling creative with the chillies.
2 poached eggs on crushed avocado with chillies and wilted spinach. No toast and an espresso.

There’s a heatwave coming! Keep hydrated

There's a heatwave coming! 
Keep hydrated.  Drinking 2 litres of water a day is important for a healthy body and hydrated youthful skin too.

Even the simplest of food looks more appetizing when presented prettily on the plate

Portion control is important when making how you eat a lifestyle choice not a diet. 
A smaller portion styled attractively on a small plate will make you feel you've still eaten well and satisfied. 
Parma ham with fresh figs and green pesto ( basil, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil)  dressing and salad leaves.

A Thai Laksa prawn curry

A Thai Laksa prawn curry.

When you fancy comforting warming carb-type food instead try a healthy version that nourishes with the warmth coming from chillies and spices rather than starchy or sugary carbs.

This is a Thai prawn Laksa with broccoli, basil leaves, pal choi, a few rice noodles, big fat juicy prawns in a thick coconut broth flavoured with chillies, and Thai spices including lemongrass, galangal, fish sauce, coriander and a pinch of palm sugar etc.
Yummy. 
Filling, warming and healthy.

Hot water and lemon first. 
Avocado on sourdough toast (complex carbs)
Poached eggs ( protein) 
Watercress ( iron) 
A single Espresso coffee (better with food than on an empty tum as it affects your own natural energy resources)
