2/3 vegetables, complex carbs and 1/3 protein

2/3 vegetables, complex carbs and 1/3 protein.
.
2 organic Duchy of Cornwall skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs roasted in extra virgin olive oil and salt on the skin so it becomes crispy.
.
4 M&S outdoor bred,  nitrate-free unsmoked, streaky bacon rashers fried in olive oil until crispy.
.
(Free from) Sacla tomato pesto, wheat free, gluten free, dairy free. 
Cauliflower, French beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, sweet potato and squash cubes.
.
.
It looks a lot on the plate, but once the bone is out of a chicken thigh there isn't much meat. 
Vegetables have very few calories.
I am not suggesting counting calories but I am suggesting that filling up on lots of vegetables is the healthy way to eat. 
The chicken protein with some healthy fats (olive oil and chicken skin) will help you fill fuller longer. .

Homemade spaghetti alla vongole

Homemade spaghetti alla vongole. (spaghetti with clams) .
.
Ingredients for the sauce: chopped shallots, garlic, fennel, chillies, fresh parsley.
.
All the above ingredients shallow fried in extra virgin olive oil until soft and the shallots translucent. .
I then added the clams to the pan (rinsed first in cold water to make sure they shut before cooking) and also a little extra boiling water.
.
Simmered for a few minutes until the clams all opened.
.
Then added the pre-cooked and rinsed( to get rid of the starchiness) wheatfree/ gluten free spaghetti into the sauce.
.
Finally more extra virgin olive oil and fresh parsley leaves.
.
Yummy, healthy, simple and quick.

The quickest ever warming home-made curry recipe

The quickest ever warming home-made curry recipe. . Whilst you're baking a salmon fillet (around 10mins), throw together a mix of frozen vegetables -cauliflower, peas, spinach into a pan and simmer them in a "Seeds of Change" all natural jar of curry sauce. Once the vegetables have cooked to be properly soft then add the cooked fish. . So quick and simple and healthy. . Spicy with a bit of a kick is always good for colds and flu. I added turmeric for extra anti-inflammatory healing properties. . . . . . .

If you saw this last bikini body post of mine please could you comment on the following: 
Did you like because..
I'm an older woman body-confident enough to wear a bikini?
Because I don't filter -what I post is the reality?
Because there were boobs!?
Because I looked ok?
Informative nutrition and lifestyle eating tips?
Because as a woman yourself I hopefully am inspiring you to be confident and not care what others say 
.
Please let me know your thoughts as I will adjust my posts accordingly.
.
Btw, This is my first home cooked lunch continuing on the same protein and good complex carbs eating regime.

Broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower.

Faddy instant quick fix diets can never work successfully as they're not sustainable long term. So finding a way of healthy eating that works for your own lifestyle is the way forward. .
.
So over the next week I'm going to post examples of the Grayshott "regime week"
with nutrition tips for you to follow. 
So you too can do a simple home version.
.
.
The key to the Regime is improving gut health with fermented foods (sauerkraut and bitters) before each meal and then having a good balance of complex carbs (vegetables) and protein ( chicken, fish , beef, etc). .
.
Yummy carrot, kale and spinach soup to start. Main course fillet of red mullet in miso broth with crispy shallots and stir fry vegetables in wheat free soy sauce. .

Healthy breakfasts dont need to be boring and can be attractively plated and colourful

Healthy breakfasts dont need to be boring and can be attractively plated and colourful. .
Organic scrambled eggs, organic streaky bacon, smashed avocado with chillis, wilted spinach, roasted sweet potato. .
If you make each plate of food appealing, it can help you regulate portion control and also create each meal to be a more sensory total experience. Always eat and focus on what you're eating rather than watching TV or reading. It's not good to eat on the move. The brain won't register you have eaten and you will remain hungry.
.
Eating with mindfulness can help remind the brain to send a timely message to the stomach when you are actually full.  This will stop you binge eating or over-eating and help you to to maintain an optimum healthy weight.
