Prawns and smoked salmon on a bed of leaves with cucumber, olives, tomatoes and avocado.
A light dressing of creme fraiche and herbs.
Smoked salmon and prawns are both goods ources of Omega 3 fatty acids and unsaturated fat. Unsaturated fats can help improve your blood cholesterol levels when you eat them in place of saturated orctrans fats. Omega 3 can reduce inflammation and reduce risk of heart disease.
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
Portion control is important when making how you eat a lifestyle choice not a diet.
A smaller portion styled attractively on a small plate will make you feel you’ve still eaten well and satisfied.
Parma ham with fresh figs and green pesto ( basil, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil) dressing and salad leaves.
When you fancy comforting warming carb-type food instead try a healthy version that nourishes with the warmth coming from chillies and spices rather than starchy or sugary carbs.
This is a Thai prawn Laksa with broccoli, basil leaves, pal choi, a few rice noodles, big fat juicy prawns in a thick coconut broth flavoured with chillies, and Thai spices including lemongrass, galangal, fish sauce, coriander and a pinch of palm sugar etc.
Filling, warming and healthy.
Hot water and lemon first.
Avocado on sourdough toast (complex carbs)
Poached eggs ( protein)
Watercress ( iron)
A single Espresso coffee (better with food than on an empty tum as it affects your own natural energy resources)
One of my favourite Thai dishes of rice noodles, bean shoots, chopped peanuts, king prawns, and lime juice, chillies, fish sauce, galangal, coriander, Thai basil and a tiny pinch of palm sugar to flavour.
