We cannot emphasise enough the importance of good eating habits. What you put into your body has a significant impact on your health and wellbeing – and your overall quality of life.
So, we have put together some of our top tips to help you kick-start better eating habits in 2018.
Never skip breakfast!
Eating a balanced and nutritious breakfast can help keep you fuller for longer, and can also help you avoid making unhealthy meal choices later in the day. A good breakfast can also help improve your mental alertness and overall performance. We have a number of tasty breakfast recipes, such as our Bircher muesli. Why not give this a try today?!
Eating small regular meals can help boost your metabolism and remove the ‘hunger factor’ often brought on by other crash diets. If you’re looking to lose weight, try six small meals a day, which include plenty of nutrients.
Make meal time a social event
When we eat with others we tend to be more mindful of our food choices. Telling our friends and family about your health and wellness goals can also help keep you on track.
Plan your meals
If you have pre-prepared your meals you are less likely to choose unhealthy alternatives. If your meals are planned in advance and you can shop for all you need in one trip (saving you time!).
Get enough sleep
If you don’t get enough sleep your body can reduce the hormones produced that make us feel full. This can tempt us to make unhealthy snacking and/or food choices. So, make sure you’re getting enough rest each night!
