The view from my balcony is beautiful this morning , the morning sunshine is dazzling.

Spain seems to be in a grip of a healthy food epidemic judging by the teas and foods on offer…more to see and find out as we journey around together 

No grain no pain….

Last weekend l went camping with the family and some good friends. My lifestyle is based on a philosophy of eating no grains ( pasta , rice , bread and the like ) and no sugar ( white , brown, sweeter products and the like ) .

Of course there are occasions when l consume some of these items but on a whole l generally abstain and its prity easy and l don’t suffer from cravings three years on from starting out on this lifestyle.

I love the benefits it brings , more , even energy levels , better skin, better brain function …there is so much to love.

So , back to camping , a brilliant time had by all camping on Oxwich beach.  Camping and NSNG ( no sugar no grains ) and paleo are ulitmate partners in crime.

All that grilled chicken and beef kebabs….fresh salads and the occasion crisp makes for a match made in heaven…camping and no grain lifestyle is easy , see my easy check list of items that will ensure you have a truly magical time….all that sea air can make a girl hungry!

NSNG / Paleo Lifestyle Camping Shopping List 

  • Chicken , lamb and beef skewers for grilling on the BBQ
  • Chicken thighs and drumsticks for BBQ or open fire cooking on the beach
  • Bags of nuts for snacking
  • Fresh salad leave with tomatoes and feta cheese
  • Sausages , bacon and fried eggs for breakfast in the morning !
  • Fresh fruit salads to cool you down mid afternoon on the beach with slices of water melon
  • Frittata for cooking and bringing to the beach for a lunch time snack alongside salami , choirizo and scotch eggs
  • Ice cream ( its not on spec but you have to have one !)
