Even the simplest of food looks more appetizing when presented prettily on the plate

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.

A Thai Laksa prawn curry

A Thai Laksa prawn curry.

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.
Yummy. 
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)

Even when you're filming a TV commercial in a studio and breakfast is served up for the crew members,  it's possible not to choose the bacon butty but have the healthy protein and low carb option.
