.. Today is back to 3 full meals around exercise, treatments and relaxation.
Creamy scrambled eggs with button mushrooms and chives for brekky after a brisk early morning walk on the heath.
Mid morning liver detox is a warm castor oil pack placed over the liver area (the 2nd of these treatments)
Lunch (I’m stuffed now)! Is lentil and roasted tomato soup and then Thai Green Curry with a side of mixed vegetables (various greens vegs and onions)
Nap time next and then maybe a yoga class or a swim with possible energising very speedy immersion in the icy plunge pool.
Kimchi is a mix of fermented cabbage carrots and spices.
Fermented foods are great for promoting gut health
1 Chinese cabbage
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2½ cm/1in piece ginger, grated
2 tbsp fish sauce (optional)
2 tbsp sriracha chilli sauce or chilli paste
3 tbsp rice vinegar
8 radishes, coarsely grated
2 carrots, cut into matchsticks or coarsely grated
4 spring onions, finely shredded
The soup is celery (diuretic) with turmeric, cumin (both anti-inflammatory)
Main course is mustard and honey roasted ham with mango or red pepper dressing choices. Courgette and pickled lime dip. Blanched ( not raw-as more indigestable) salad with a large bowl of mixed mostly green vegs.
Hardly starved am I? Even though detoxing. All healthy low/good carb and protein food choices.
A healthy gut supports your immune system, your body’s response to stress and how your body responds to the food you eat.
Fermented foods such as Sauerkraut eaten before a meal help trigger the digestive processes. As do digestive bitters or a tablespoon of organic raw apple cider vinegar.
This can also help acid reflux problems.
Ingredients include coconut milk, soaked almonds, soaked chia seeds, soaked flax seeds (all soaked to be more digestible) avocado for good fats, spinach, cucumber, ( good carbohydrates) lime juice, blueberries, water, vanilla extract, sea salt, raw honey, mixed spice (cinnamon coriander dill seed nutmeg cloves). @grayshottspa

Last coffee for the next week.
I will be eating low carb (healthy ones) protein and loads of vegetables and good fats including avocados, butter, oils and oily fish for Omega 3.
And most importantly fermented foods such as sauerkraut, for a healthy gut.
