There is a wonderful local old fashioned-style greengrocers on the New Kings Road london SW6 that sells an amazing array of loose vegetables-no plastic wrap to be seen- and all sorts of yummy health foods too

These sunflower, broccoli and kale micro greens have a higher concentration of vitamins, phytonutrients, antioxidants and  minerals than normal greens contain. Microgreens are also rich in enzymes, which enable them to be more easily digested.
.
This lunch I threw together looks huge on the plate but is mostly the microgreens, avocado ( for healthy fats) and wilted spinach ( for iron) 
With a salmon fillet ( for omega3)  griddled for a crispy skin in extra virgin olive oil (healthy oils) .
.
The sauerkraut is for good gut health, a tablespoon eaten before the meal, .
and a couple of olives can also act as a natural probiotic as well as all their other antioxidant and healthy oil benefits.

Scrambled local farmshop free range eggs, smoked salmon from the village fish shop, smashed avocado with red chillies that were home grown in my garden, peashoots, and artisan seeded sourdough bread from the local baker. .
When you're by the seaside it's so much nicer to be able to shop locally for your ingredients, supporting the local community and village shops but also to know that the food you're buying is mostly locally produced and free range or organic..
.
Sometimes the food we eat may look and taste delicious but add nothing positive to daily diet or our nutrition. These include simple carbs which are mostly foods that are beige ( ie: bread, biscuits, cakes, pastries, pasta). Processed foods.  Hormone-fed meats.  Battery-reared chickens and eggs.

Your brain and digestive system are very much interactive together.
.
This is why you should always sit quietly and properly enjoy the food you are eating,  visually and tastewise.. .
Try to avoid eating when you're on the go, in your car, in a rush or in front of the TV.

Tuna, sundried tomatoes, tomatoes, cucumber, mixed leaves, organic egg, extra virgin olive oil.

Eat Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Queen

Eat Breakfast like a King, 
Lunch like a Queen. 
Dinner like a Pauper.

My breakfast here was eaten late morning and was a 2 organic egg omelette with spinach and Gruyere cheese (a brand made with raw cow's milk for gut health).

Nutritional science helping our bodies function best evolves all the times with new findings. .
Breakfast doesn't have to be 1st thing in the morning but at least 12 hours after your last meal of the day. This could mean that if you ate last at 8pm then your breakfast is anytime from 8am again.  If you are following an intermittent 16/18 fasting regime (2 consecutive days a week), then your breakfast would be around midday to 2pm. .
Then your subsequent 2 or 3 meals can  be squeezed into an 8 hour window. .

Creator and author of the 5:2 diet and brand The Fast 800.
How to combine rapid weight loss and intermittent fasting for long term health.
.
Here I am at his talk, Q&A and launch of his new book and diet regime for good gut health and reduction of both external fat/weight and internal visceral fat surrounding the organs. This can reverse Type 2 Diabetes and many other lifestyle illnesses.
.
This style of eating with intermittent fasting is similar to how I live and eat, and teach my clients to eat. .
I personally choose to have a 12 hour fast overnight into the following day with 2 days a week of 16/18 hours overnight fasting. 
I dont restrict my own calories unless it's after Christmas or after lots of partying or entertaining. 
I do like my food and I like to enjoy life. .
It's a very easy regime to follow and continue as a lifestyle choice -NOT a faddy diet.
.
It works! 
Apparently Hugh Jackman and Aiden Turner both follow this healthy eating plan too
