How to Make Hitting Your 5-A-Day-Target A Breeze

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!

Scrumptiuous Spring: Lighter Dishes You Will Salivate Over

Joy of joys, springtime is here and we can finally enjoy fresh produce returning to our shops. Nothing beats a ripe apple to go with your morning granola.

Whether you’re into big lenses, tinted glasses, cat-eye glasses, huge, oversized trendy pairs or something else entirely, you’re going to have plenty to choose from, even in the most out-of-the-way places.

Plan Out Your Meals
Meal prep is essential when it comes to eating healthy. When you don’t plan ahead, trying to decide on a healthy meal when you’re hungry normally results in you buying something that’s not fresh or ends up being processed. That’s because when you’re hungry, your body is just focused on getting food into your stomach. So take a moment at the start of the week to plan your shopping list and to prep your meals in advance. That way, you’ve got the food you need, planned for the week ahead, and that everything you’ve bought is mostly fresh and not containing all those ingredients that aren’t good for you.

Try A Food Subscription Service
Food waste is something many of us try to avoid where possible, and there is more of a conscious effort to waste less. A food subscription service might be a good thing to try out if you’ve not yet given it a go. Meal kits for families are very popular in many households, but you can also get subscription services for smaller households of couples or individuals. These meals come with a how-to guide of how to cool it and has all the ingredients specific to the meal. That means less waste and hopefully saving more money in the process.

Give Something A Try Once
There’s probably plenty of food that you’ve yet to try, or maybe you tried when you were younger and hated. Your taste buds do change over the years, and those who loved sugar as a child may now prefer savory as a treat for dessert. It’s always best to live by the rule of trying something once when it comes to food. You may surprise yourself and end up liking some of the healthier options that never seemed appealing in the first place. Try everything once and give yourself the opportunity to revisit a certain food later on in life as you may find your taste buds have changed, and you now like it.

Avoid Certain Aisles When Shopping
When food shopping in a grocery store, it can be very easy to drop food into your shopping trolley or basket. There will be certain aisles in a store that have more unhealthy food options, and this can be a distraction from what you’re trying to aim for. So when you shop in-store, try to avoid any aisles where the unhealthy, junk food lives. Make a rule for yourself that when in line for the checkout, you do an audit of your shop and take out anything that may have slipped its way in.

Having a good relationship with food is essential to living a long and healthy life!
