Healthy homecooked Sunday brunch

Healthy homecooked Sunday brunch.
.
.
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.

2/3 vegetables, complex carbs and 1/3 protein

2/3 vegetables, complex carbs and 1/3 protein.
.
2 organic Duchy of Cornwall skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs roasted in extra virgin olive oil and salt on the skin so it becomes crispy.
.
4 M&S outdoor bred,  nitrate-free unsmoked, streaky bacon rashers fried in olive oil until crispy.
.
(Free from) Sacla tomato pesto, wheat free, gluten free, dairy free. 
Cauliflower, French beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, sweet potato and squash cubes.
.
.
It looks a lot on the plate, but once the bone is out of a chicken thigh there isn't much meat. 
Vegetables have very few calories.
I am not suggesting counting calories but I am suggesting that filling up on lots of vegetables is the healthy way to eat. 
The chicken protein with some healthy fats (olive oil and chicken skin) will help you fill fuller longer. .

The quickest ever warming home-made curry recipe

The quickest ever warming home-made curry recipe. . Whilst you're baking a salmon fillet (around 10mins), throw together a mix of frozen vegetables -cauliflower, peas, spinach into a pan and simmer them in a "Seeds of Change" all natural jar of curry sauce. Once the vegetables have cooked to be properly soft then add the cooked fish. . So quick and simple and healthy. . Spicy with a bit of a kick is always good for colds and flu. I added turmeric for extra anti-inflammatory healing properties. . . . . . .

My healthy version of the ” full English” breakfast

My healthy version of the " full English" breakfast.

Complex carbs take longer to digest than simple carbs helping you to feel fuller longer with less blood sugar spikes keeping your energy levels constant. Especially when you got up to work at 5.30am and feel like you've had a whole day by midday! 
2 organic eggs (protein) fried in Waitrose bought organic butter, ( good fats) organic multigrain and wholewheat bread ( complex carbs) from the local bakery.
Streaky Duchy of Cornwall free range bacon ( protein)
Wilted spinach ( great spurce of iron)
Avocado (oddly it's a fruit and is also full of good fats )
Some fat in your diet is good for you and also helps you feel fuller longer. .

Saturday night dinner entertaining

Saturday night dinner entertaining. 
My supper party last night was a gaspacho starter with added chopped cucumber and croutons to add texture to the cold soup.
Then this home-cooked paella.
The rice was cooked in shellfish stock (lobster, mussels, chicken, garlic and onions in the vegetable water stock), and chicken thighs roasted first with crispy skin, chorizo, prawns, mussels, squid, and some sliced peppers to decorate.
I served it with a green salad.
Cheeses and strawberries and cream for pud.
