Sunday breakfast

Sunday breakfast.
.
Poached eggs and smashed avocado on a slice of granary toast, with chopped chillies to sprinkle on top snd some watercress snd spinach leaves. 
A hot water with a slice of lemon to start and an Expresso to finish. 
Sunday is one of the few days I have a slice of toast treat. The rest of the week is wheat free as much as possible. A mostly wheat and grain free lifestyle helps me to keep at an even weight and not bloat.
Also leaving a minimum of 12 hours from my last meal of the previous evening to the next day breakfast or first meal of the day gives the digestive system a rest for good gut health.

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.

This post on eating disorders ( thank you to @jayeazoff ) has many of the thoughts that I include in my UK school talks to kids ranging from age 7-17 and also their parents

This post on eating disorders ( thank you to @jayeazoff ) has many of the thoughts that I include in my UK school talks to kids ranging from age 7-17 and also their parents.
.
My talks include social media-the positives and negatives, body image, comparison anxieties, bullying and exclusion, mental health and all issues to do with feeling good about yourself. .
I  was a celebrity stylist for over 30 years and now work with private and corporate clients with lifestyle, image and life change and have seen how the relationship with food and eating habits can affect people's lives, their mental health and well-being. .
I took a nutrition degree over the last few years to add to my expertise and knowledge of how to help my clients with a healthy balanced lifestyle. 
I want my clients to be the best versions of themselves they can be. .

Sometimes a little of what you fancy (a slice of granary seeded toast) when your daily diet is wheat free, is better than denying yourself, craving it and then succumbing and binging

Healthy low carb and protein post workout breakfast

Healthy low carb and protein post workout breakfast.

Scrambled eggs with organic butter, wilted spinach, and smashed avocado on seeded multigrain  toast. A nutritious breakfast to keep you feeling fuller longer with less blood sugar highs and lows. 
12 hours since last meal and this 1st meal of the day to help digestion.
I start the day with warm lemon water and then a small swig of Kefir with a liquid multi-vitamin mixed in with it.  All fermented foods help to promote good gut health.

My healthy version of the ” full English” breakfast

My healthy version of the " full English" breakfast.

Complex carbs take longer to digest than simple carbs helping you to feel fuller longer with less blood sugar spikes keeping your energy levels constant. Especially when you got up to work at 5.30am and feel like you've had a whole day by midday! 
2 organic eggs (protein) fried in Waitrose bought organic butter, ( good fats) organic multigrain and wholewheat bread ( complex carbs) from the local bakery.
Streaky Duchy of Cornwall free range bacon ( protein)
Wilted spinach ( great spurce of iron)
Avocado (oddly it's a fruit and is also full of good fats )
Some fat in your diet is good for you and also helps you feel fuller longer. .

Early morning beach walk time

Early morning beach walk time.

For a healthy gut which helps you to be healthy overall,  if you leave 12 hours between your last evening meal and your breakfast/brunch/first meal of the day you are giving your digestive system a chance to digest and rest. 
Take your exercise before this first meal of the day. 
20 mins fast walking or 20 mins HIT exercise will help your weightloss programme.. .

Breakfast for three on the beach- my human, her friend and me

Breakfast for three on the beach- my human, her friend and me. 
My human's breakfast is the healthier one of the two on the table with the poached eggs(protein) with smashed avocado(good fats) on granary toast(complex carbs-low glycaemic index that helos keep blood sugar levels more constant) and crispy bacon( protein). And an Espresso coffee 
The other is eggs Benedict (white muffin-simple carbs-not so good has a high Glycaemic index which creates blood sugar spikes) hollandaise sauce-eggs and olive oil protein and good fats if made with extra virgin olive oil- not made with a mix of processed and refined oils). And an Americano coffee. The black expresso is a better option. .

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). .
