You never know what you can do until you try!
Those who have known me for a long time could never have imagined me gardening-least of all having winning vegetables in the annual local Horticultural Show!
Organic scrambled eggs cooked in salted organic butter with crispy pancetta (fried in olive oil)
All good fats necessary for a successful and healthy weightloss regime
With smashed avocado and chopped red chilli.
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.
When you can’t resist a lobster, burger and chips treat on the weekend
This is the yummiest beef burger patty weekend treat
I reduced the carbs by going wheat-free no bun
With bacon, cheese and salad
And a lobster claw in tempura batter
When you’re feeling stressed, bored, depressed or feeling any emotion that drives you to eat to feed an emotional void not hunger, take a moment and consider why and choose an alternative action.
It could be a short walk, a swim or any activity that takes you away from the cookie jar or fridge.
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.
