My wheat free low carb and protein breakfast

My wheat free low carb and protein breakfast.

The chef in the cafe who cooked breakfast this morning was obviously feeling creative with the chillies.
2 poached eggs on crushed avocado with chillies and wilted spinach. No toast and an espresso.

Basic core and glute strengthening Physio pilates exercise

Basic core and glute strengthening Physio pilates exercise.

Lie with your feet on a ball.
Put downward pressure onto the ball and push the ball away from you. Then bring back in.
Engage the core and glutes to use the hip flexors less.
Make sure ribs are down, back is in neutral and toes relaxed. 
Its a slow journey to regaining full fitness after an injury. Patience is key.

Healthy protein breakfast after morning Pilates to keep energy up during the day.

Omelette with spinach, mushrooms and cheese 
and hot water with lemon to start. 
Leaving 12 hours after the last meal the day before so the body has a chance to digest and if you like- giving it a chance to fast in that period

Light protein and complex carbs fish supper.

Amarinth microseed leaves, Samphire, organic salmon fillet,  baby new potatoes. 
New potatoes have a lower glycaemic index than baked potatoes. Low GI helps maintain blood sugar levels longer. 
Samphire greens are great for iron.
Salmon is a good oily fish for Omega 3. 
Microseeds and microleaves are hugely nutritious.

There’s a heatwave coming! Keep hydrated

There's a heatwave coming! 
Keep hydrated.  Drinking 2 litres of water a day is important for a healthy body and hydrated youthful skin too.
