  • Gut health mission! The last two months have been busy, a little stressful and filled with various indulgencies, lots of flying and not having a routine. This often (more like 100% of the time) leads to disrupted gut flora and generally poor gut health, which in turn compromises out immune system. 😷😰😣 So on top of getting my diet back to normal (I eat mostly paleo) and getting into my usual sleeping and fitness routine, I'm stocking up on probiotics. I made a batch of kefir (way too easy) and got some ready made raw sauerkraut (I should really make my own but that's for next week). If you feel like you often come down with colds, flu or just feeling off, look at your gut health first. Always helps me 😃 #guthealth #healthyeating #healthyliving #paleo #nourishing #kefir #jerf #westonaprice #fermentation

  • Thai lunch for one 😉 Salmon tartare, grilled chicken with herbs, veggies and fish cakes. Fresh coconut with lime! At Cafe Chilli (Siam Paragon). Great food but overpriced as you can get equally good grub much cheaper at the markets or in a street cafe. Paying for the aircon. At least I'm doing research 😋😎 #bangkok #food #thai #foodie #travel #recipeplanning #paleo #primal #glutenfree
