Low carb flatbread - Plant based whole food

Low Carb Easy Flatbread

I’m still wearing the excess of Christmas round my middle so have decided I need a week or two to rid myself of the extra pound or twenty! For me, the easiest way of doing that is lowering my carb intake. I never look to lower my fruit or veg load when lowering my carbs, but look to other areas such as bread and grains. The only problem with that is a) bread (or wraps) are such an easy ingredient to incorporate into your daily eating and b) I love bread!!!

I have come up with a delicious low carb alternative that is also very healthy and very easy to incorporate into your daily life! It’s incredibly easy to make, and also very quick.

Easy DIY Detox

DETOX IS NOT A DIRTY WORD!

Detox should not be about deprivation, drinking just water for a day or swallowing a bucket of pills.
Detox should be packed with nutritious food that will gently help cleanse your body of the toxic rubbish you may have indulged in over Christmas. Try it for just a week (which if you were to draw a line from your birth to where you are now possibly wouldn’t even make a blip) If you stick to it, you should feel fabulous, sleep better, lose weight, have clear whites around your eyes and have bucket loads of energy. However the first couple of days as you come off caffeine and alcohol could make you feel a bit yucky – if you do, then you, and your body, more than anyone ‘need’ this detox. However, if you feel your symptoms are too severe, then consult a doctor – the detox may be too strong for you. 99% of the toxins will be eliminated via your liver. If you don’t have a good functioning liver this detox is not for you.
It’s easy to create your own detox regime with the foods that you actually enjoy rather than following someone else’s. Just follow the golden rules below and you should feel a new person in 7 days!!!
ps: don’t forget to drink lots of water! Here are the steps to take to start your detox

Also just have to say my daughter Tazzie and her friends Maddie and Mckenna designed and photographed the main photo!

Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Before I launch into some great healthy ideas for breakfast, I just want to touch upon the big question; ‘what is healthy?”

For some it’s low carb, for some it’s low fat, and for others it’s high fibre. In the 70’s a healthy breakfast was deemed a grapefruit, in the 80’s Special K made their pinch-an-inch marketing drive the breakfast must have du jour, and in the 90’s a blueberry muffin was the go! It’s really not surprising that we are more confused than ever. But for me, in the 2000’s, the basics for eating healthy are unprocessed, nutrient-rich and low-in-refined-sugar foods.
