Sun, sea and seafood

Sun, sea and seafood.
.
The last day of an Indian Summer with lunch by the sea with a healthy but delicious Asian fusion mix of scallop, seabass and tempura prawn on a bed of vegetables, noodles and peanuts.
.
It's so easy to eat healthily when it's presented beautifully and tastes delcious.
Its all about the flavours.
.
Even when you are cooking at home, however simple or basic the recipe or meal, if you take a bit of extra care and time to make it look appetising on the plate, you will feel more satisfied on a smaller portion.
You will crave less of the unhealthy sugary carb laden foods which give high/low spikes to your blood sugar and energy levels.

Healthy lifestyle tips

Healthy lifestyle tips.

Here are 5 tips for a good digestive system and improved gut health which is the key to your general optimum health and well being.

I subsitute oatcakes for bread when I'm craving a healthy carb fix,  especially eaten with unpasteurized cheese (a healthy gut likes unpasteurised cheese and fermented foods as friendly bacteria and probiotics keep your microbiome happy and healthy). .

Friday’s veggie brunch

Friday's veggie brunch.

Midday today, 16 hours after yesterday evening's last meal at 8pm.  The 16hour fasting time gives the gut and body time to have a break from digesting food and if continued 2 days consecutively can help weight loss, gut health and overall wellbeing.

This month's haircut with @andyatagency Thank you as always.

Andy delivers the best haircuts that flatter your faceshape and work best for whatever hair type you have.
My hair is so fine but he makes it appear thick and with graduation to make the cut more interesting and edgy.
He always does a fabulous job and also does a great selfie...

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.

My home-cooked meat-free veggie Bank Holiday weekend cooked breakfast

My home-cooked meat-free veggie Bank Holiday weekend cooked breakfast.

Eggs from the local farm shop chickens, seeded wholemeal bread from the Island Bakery with rather a generous spread of organic butter, wilted spinach, beef tomato slices, avocado and mushrooms.

I always eat breakfast or brunch straight after working out, or doing any fitness or exercise.  Healthy mix of carbs and protein and good fats. .

2 more of my age 50plus ladies Styled by me for the @lookfabforever TV commercial

2 more of my age 50plus ladies Styled by me for the @lookfabforever TV commercial. "Act the age you feel" is the look on the left and
"No olds barred" on the right.
When you reach age 50 and beyond don't become invisible by dressing to fade into the background.
Be bold with colour and design but always dress to flatter your bodyshape.
