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.

Here are 5 tips for a good digestive system and improved gut health which is the key to your general optimum health and well being.

I subsitute oatcakes for bread when I'm craving a healthy carb fix,  especially eaten with unpasteurized cheese (a healthy gut likes unpasteurised cheese and fermented foods as friendly bacteria and probiotics keep your microbiome happy and healthy). .

Friday’s veggie brunch

Friday's veggie brunch.

Midday today, 16 hours after yesterday evening's last meal at 8pm.  The 16hour fasting time gives the gut and body time to have a break from digesting food and if continued 2 days consecutively can help weight loss, gut health and overall wellbeing.

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:

Improves Heart Health by Lowering Blood Pressure and Cholesterol.. Builds Muscle and Helps Lose Fat. .
Provides Electrolytes and Prevents Fatigue. ... Helps Lose Weight. ... Improves Digestion and Relieves Constipation. ... Manages Blood Sugar and Controls Diabetes. ... Helps Prevent Anemia.

Healthy low carb and protein fishy lunch by the sea

Healthy low carb and protein fishy lunch by the sea.

Prawns and smoked salmon on a bed of leaves with cucumber,  olives, tomatoes and avocado.

Smoked salmon and prawns are both goods ources of Omega 3 fatty acids and unsaturated fat. Unsaturated fats can help improve your blood cholesterol levels when you eat them in place of saturated orctrans fats. Omega 3 can reduce inflammation and reduce risk of heart disease.
