With breakfast yesterday at midday, lunch was at 4pm with bone broth supper at 7pm for the final and 3rd day of a 3 day consecutive fast.
As you can see it’s hardly starvation!
This quick and easy recipe was sliced organic beef from a rib of beef ( which was made into the bone broth) stir fried in coconut butter with spring greens ( again already cooked leftovers from another meal in the fridge) with wheat free soy sauce, teaspoon of honey, chopped garlic and chillies.
Yummy simple and healthy., @grayshottspa
When I’m by the seaside I’m permanently hungry! It must be the sea air.
So the next 2 days will have 16 hour breaks between the last broth at 6pm and breakfast the following day which willl be at 10am after an exercise class. So basically squeezing 2 proper protein and healthy complex carb meals into an 8 hour period.
The bone broth was cooked from grass fed beef short ribs which had been previously slow cooked with vegetables, onions and garlic as a dinner the day before.
My new favourite restaurant @fancycrabuk
Grilled Squid Steak with squid ink, roasted beetroot, salad
Grilled over charcoal and served with a yuzu lime, szechwan pepper, lemongrass & galangal dressing.
And ‘Merus’ from the largest part of the crab leg grilled with butter and hollandaise sauce with triple cooked fries ( I didnt eat them).
With a side of Steamed Kale Roasted anchovy & bone marrow butter
Breaking the 5:2 fast with breakfast of spiced cured salmon with avocado and butter bean houmous ( no coffee)! Yummy and super healthy with omega 3 and good fats.
A swim in the indoor pool, a plunge in the very cold but invigorating icy plunge pool after a steam room. All fitted in befire a 16 minute hydrotherapy bath with Epsom salts which are great for magnesium, detoxification and relaxation.
Lunch is a buternut, chilli and lime soup followed by cold salmon with green baby pea shoots, a walnut dip and a designer swoosh of pureed beetroot. Accompanied with a rainbow mix of vegetables for vits ACE and zinc with their health giving benefits as antioxidants.
Of course digestive bitters and sauerkraut to start to get those digestive juices working for good gut health and a few soaked mixed nuts (and some olives) for their good fats.
So as you can see a Grayshott regime is by no means a starvation diet and there is still a 2 course dinner later after a pilates class.
No grains, no sugar, no milk,
but simply protein, healthy fats, vegetables,, fibre, nuts and fermented foods all helping the body to become its optimum best with a healthy functioning gut.
This doesnt mean starvation however as it’s all about leaving a space of time between last meal and next and also reducing the amount of food in a day as in 5:2 diet.
This is bone broth boiled for over 12 hours with chopped carrots, parsley and courgettes.
Lunch today is in the following post.
