A low-carb, wheat-free recipe for crab pasta using spiralized courgettes instead of spaghetti

A low-carb, wheat-free recipe for crab pasta using spiralized courgettes instead of spaghetti.

Spiralize the courgettes.
Then saute in coconut oil or olive oil some onion, garlic, chopped red chillies, adding salt and pepper until soft and translucent.
Then finally add the spiralized courgettes, courgette flowers, and crab meat. This only needs cooking quickly as you dont want it to go too soft or mushy.
Finish off with some parsley.
A quick and easy low csrb and protein healthy meal!

Starting the day with protein and low carbs is better for you than cereals or fruit

Starting the day with protein and low carbs is better for you than cereals or fruit.

Start your day with a protein and low carb breakfast for maintaing energy levels throughout the morning. Having fruit or fruit juice on its own turns straight to sugar. If you want fruit then I suggest eating it with some protein such as Greek yoghurt or walnuts. This helps stop the fruit turning straight to sugar and giving you a false sugar energy high and low. 
Wait to have your breakfast or first meal of the day at least 12 hours after your last meal of the previous day. This will help sustain weightloss and give your digestive system a rest.

Poached eggs with avocado, crispy bacon, tomatos and a swirl of balsamic vinegar.

Your Summer #bikinibody weekend brunch can be both healthy and yummy

Your Summer weekend brunch can be both healthy and yummy. 
Appetising and appealing food on a plate can be comprised of healthy low carb and protein ingredients. Including some good fats in your diet is better than eating low and no fat, as it can actually help your weightloss and help you feel satisfied.

The hormonal and metabolic benefits of eating more fat are great, but one of the best benefits might be the satiating effects of fat. Nothing is worse than eating a lower-calorie diet that leaves your hungry all the time. This is traditionally a huge problem in diets which deny you foods with a higher fat content such as nuts, fatty fish, cheese, and avocado.

Satiating fat leaves you feeling full. When the fat you eat hits your small intestine, it sets off a cascade of signals which includes the release of hormones such as CCK and PYY. These two hormones play a major role in appetite regulation and satiety; they leave you feeling full and satisfied. The more satiated you are, the less likely that you're going to sneak in snacks between meals or pile on a second helping.

So for a weekend brunch I have cooked crispy free range streaky bacon, organic scrambled egg in a little organic salted butter,  wilted spinach, baby Isle of Wight tomatoes, avocado, with some chopped red chillies.
And an Expresso coffee.

Have a lovely weekend.

Quick healthy homecooking

Quick healthy homecooking. When you're time-poor and wanting to keep on your healthy eating protein and low carb regime, an all-in-one tray bake is the way forward. Chicken thighs, cauliflower, carrots , red onions, butternut squash, garlic.. With a little coconut butter. Yummy! The broccoli was boiled for a few minutes as an additional green vegetable.
