As a new year begins, we decide that things are going to be different this year. Sound familiar? As easy as it may be to make these resolutions, we often lack the motivation to see them through. Healthy eating is one of the more popular new year’s resolutions, and here are a few little tricks to make it work:
Mornings make all the difference! Those who eat a good, balanced breakfast are often more productive and get off to a better start. A decent helping of fruit or delicious quark with (home-made) muesli as soon as you get up can really help to strengthen the body. Or perhaps you’d prefer a tasty sandwich?
A good portion of vitamins does the body a whole lot of good, plus it also strengthens the immune system and makes a great alternative to unhealthy sweets. But you don’t necessarily have to eat fruit to get your daily dose of vitamins: water tastes much better and is even healthier if you throw some fresh fruit into the mix. Pour it into a gorgeous FLOW cooling carafe with some lemon, orange, mint or your favourite fruit and steep for a while to make your own infused water. It’s so simple!
Whether you use them in a delicious salad or a stew, vegetables always taste great! With all the nutrients and vitamins that they contain, vegetables help the immune system to ward off all the viruses going around. Why not try a scrumptious salad with avocado, walnuts and pomegranate for a fruity, nutty twist? This is a simply delicious salad – and it’s not just for summer. Stews also do you the world of good when the temperatures hit frosty lows. They warm you up from inside while also providing a healthy, tasty boost. An exotic lentil soup is that bit different and tastes fantastic. And to make sure you can also enjoy these healthy meals on the go, the CLIP & GO lunchboxes are here to help.
Ginger is truly a secret weapon! Brew it with lemon in a beautiful vacuum jug to make a fresh tea or chop it up small and pop some in a tasty stir-fry with vegetables: whatever you do with it, ginger certainly packs a punch and supplies a whole load of vitamins and nutrients. That’s why it’s a good idea to always have little bit of fresh stem ginger in the house. To make sure it lasts, you should keep your ginger in the fridge in a CLIP & CLOSE food storage container. That way it won’t get fibrous too quickly or dry out.
