How to Make Hitting Your 5-A-Day-Target A Breeze
Be honest. How many portions of fruit and vegetables do you consume on an average day? Experts recommend a minimum of five portions per day. If you’re struggling to hit the target, here are some tips to make healthy eating a breeze.

Juices and smoothies
Making juices and smoothies is one of the simplest, quickest ways to boost your vitamin and mineral intake. You can rustle up tasty thirst quenchers in a matter of seconds, using ingredients you love. Making juices and smoothies at home is much cheaper than buying products from cafes and stores, and it’s often better for you, as you have control over what goes into the recipe. Some shop-bought smoothies contain a lot of added sugar. Once you’ve invested in a juicer or a blender, you can experiment with different ingredients and flavours, trying everything from a vibrant, refreshing strawberry juicer recipe to an indulgent coconut and banana smoothie. Juices and smoothies are ideal for breakfast, especially if you’re in a hurry. When you’re mixing fruits and vegetables, look for tastes and flavours that complement each other, and don’t be afraid to be bold.

2020 has been a difficult year for most of us. The coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic have meant that back in March, governments around the world started to implement stay at home orders, social isolation measures and social distancing to minimise and slow the spread of the virus. Over the past five months, many businesses have had to remain closed to abide by these new rules and restrictions. One of the industries that has been hit the hardest is the dining and hospitality industry. Restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs and other venues have all had to shut their doors, as social distancing in these spaces wasn’t initially deemed possible. However, as time has passed, and as we are all becoming more aware of how to compose ourselves and act to reduce infection rates, restrictions are being lifted and those of us who own or run restaurants are beginning to be able to consider opening back up. But what can you do to help your business to thrive during these still difficult times? Here are a few tips and tricks to take into consideration!

CHOOSING THE BEST SUNGLASSES FOR YOU

What is the Mediterranean diet
The Mediterranean diet is more than just a diet, it’s a lifestyle based on the ways that people used to live in Southern Italy, Greece and their surrounding countries during the 1960s. The reason why the Mediterranean diet isn’t based on the cuisine of these countries now is that, like many other parts of the world, fast food outlets and convenience stores have changed their previously very healthy food culture bringing with it rising obesity levels and health problems.

That Mediterranean diet of old is still widely considered one of the healthiest ways to eat, combining whole plant foods with lean protein sources, good healthy fats such as olive oil and avocado, with whole grains and legumes. The diet also encourages people to eat slowly and socially rather than to fuel convenience and champions regular exercise and positive mental wellbeing.
