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). .

Endermology

Endermology.

When legs feel and look heavy,  Endermology can help their appearance whilst you are on your weightloss regime and body transformation journey. 
Yes those are my legs...and this treatment helps me a lot.

It's a roller which is used over your body (whilst you wear a special body stocking). The action of the machine helps lymphatic drainage ( in fact cancer treatment patients have this treatment too to help their lymph drainage) 
It helps reduce cellulite, skin elasticity, skin tone and skin quality. 
A couple of sessions a week over a few months and then an occasional maintenance one definitely makes a difference.

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. .

A quick healthy Summer lunch inspo

A quick healthy Summer lunch inspo.

Organic salmon fillet shallow-fried in organic butter so that the skin goes crispy (start flesh side down) will only take 5 minutes to cook.
On a bed of leaves with avocado and cucumber.
Eating at least 3 portions of oily fish gives you Omega3 fatty acids essential for a healthy brain, heart and eyes.

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.
