The two items I couldn’t live without in the kitchen this Summer were: My @zerowateruk filter jug to filter my tap water making it taste as good as the bottled water I used to buy daily, and also in my opinion filtering more efficiently than other filter jug brands

And
My Lavazza coffee machine for my morning expressos and guests' capuccinos.
.
What are your kitchen must haves? .
Btw...
It's always good to drink a glass of water together with every cup of coffee.
Coffee is a diuretic.
When diuretics flush away sodium, the body also flushes away water, dehydrating the body. .

Some days we all feel less than

Some days we all feel less than...
.
However
.
I'm not talking about social media comparison anxiety here
But 
maybe when we're not feeling like we are OWN personal best and need to take back control of our healthy eating habits and healthy lifestyle.
.
So my posts over the next week will be my intermittent fasting regime and recipes to inspire you and to keep myself motivated too.
.
Love to know at the end of the week how you're doing too if you're following.

Sunday's breakfast.

Good morning

Good morning. Good Friday 
.
My happy place by the sea with dogs @misslucy_lou and family for Easter weekend.
.
This picture was taken by my daughter on our morning dog walk after 4 days of the 5 day Prolon intermittent fast-mimicking 1000 calorie a day diet plan. My daughter commented I was looking significantly slimmer. I don't know how much weight I've lost as I prefer to not weigh as I don't believe obsessing with weight or calories is a healthy mindset.
.
The scientifically researched mix of vitamin supplements together with the packeted vegan soups, nut and cocoa bars and fresh olives were actually really tasty and quite easy to manage for 5 days without feeling faint or too hungry or deprived. I do like my food.  .
Prolon do caution no exercise during this period, however I did have a yoga class and dog walks and was fine. .
Intermittent fasting is how I live day to day always leaving 12 hours after my last meal to my first of the following day. And when I can, 2 consecutive days a week, leaving 16-18 hours overnight ( an early supper, no breakfast, late lunch) . Not difficult. .
So these 5 days mimicked this way of eating but with reduced calorific intake. Much the same as the Michael Mosely 1000 cal a day eating plan for helping to reverse type 2 diabetes.
.
Happy Easter everyone.
I'm now looking forward to family Easter weekend with proper meals which are still healthy and also a bite or two or three of a dark chocolate Easter egg.

Good morning Sunday

Good morning Sunday.

A makeup free face no filters. .
Over the last month I had 5 x BDR facials at the lovely Elena's Fulham aesthetics beauty clinic Elenique.
.
I've been using the BDR products regularly every day. Cleanser, toner, 2 x serums and a moisturiser. Seemed a lot of products to use twice a day at the beginning as I'm all about speed as never have time to faff around, but 
I' ve got used to the routine now and even managed to fit an exfoliation in one evening too. .
My skin tone seems improved, maybe a bit firmer and plumper, still have wrinkles but I wasn't hoping for a miracle. 
.
10 facials apparently is the best for optimum results with occasional monthly maintenance one after that.
.

With thanks to @welovebdr and @elenacudworth @eleniqueskinclinic .
