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.

Another protein and low carb breakfast idea

Another protein and low carb breakfast idea.

Scrambled eggs with spinach, avocado and tomatoes. You could leave a 12 hours interval before you eat your breakfast,  after your last meal the eve before.  This gives your digestion a chance to rest. 16-18 hours is an optimum gap if you're on a weight loss journey. On 2 consecutive days for the best result.

Spinach, avocado and tomatoes are all good slow release carbs eaten together with the protein of the eggs.  Tomatoes contain the antioxidant lycopene which has been linked to many health benefits including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They also contain Vit C and Vit K.

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.
