Crab and courgette spaghetti with chilli and rocket

Crab and courgette spaghetti with chilli and rocket.

Crabmeat with spiralized or courgette strips with spaghetti, olive oil, lemon juice and chillies and rocket leaves.

Mixing spaghetti with courgettes and leaves helps the dish become more nutritionally balanced and to last longer as fuel for  your body.

Courgettes and leaves are healthy low carb foods and crab is protein. Less heathy processed white flour foods such as pasta are carbs which are processed by the body turning quickly into sugar. 
When pasta is only eaten in a small quantity and mixed with healthy options it helps slow down the blood sugar high and low caused by high glycaemic food such as pasta and other refined white flour foods.

Thai king prawn Laksa curry lunch in the sun today at Phat Phuk noodle bar London

Thai king prawn Laksa curry lunch in the sun today at Phat Phuk noodle bar London.

Low carb and protein Thai lunch on London's Kings road Chelsea. My favourite little cafe with Thai street food. Yummy healthy and inexpensive. I always ask the rice noodles to be replaced with vegetables so they add extra broccoli and leaves. 
The base ingredient of a Laksa is coconut milk which has loads of health benefits:

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.
