A regime morning @grayshottspa

A regime morning @grayshottspa . 
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.

Starting lunch with a delicious homemade soup

Starting lunch with a delicious homemade soup.

The soup is celery (diuretic) with turmeric, cumin (both anti-inflammatory) 
Main course is mustard and honey roasted ham with mango or red pepper dressing choices. Courgette and pickled lime dip. Blanched ( not raw-as more indigestable) salad with a large bowl of mixed mostly green vegs.
Yummy.
Hardly starved am I? Even though detoxing. All healthy low/good carb and protein food choices.

Good gut health is important for your whole health and wellbeing

Good gut health is important for your whole health and wellbeing.

A healthy gut supports your immune system, your body's response to stress and how your body responds to the food you eat.

Fermented foods such as Sauerkraut eaten before a meal help trigger the digestive processes. As do digestive bitters or a tablespoon of organic raw apple cider vinegar.
This can also help acid reflux problems.
