BRINGING HEALTH WITH YOU

Bringing healthy food to events during the festive season is an awesome way to not only ensure you don’t overindulge but also encourage your loved ones to eat better with you. We encourage treating yourself and being balanced during celebrations, however, I’m sure many of you can also vouch for this – to look good you must feel good. By ensuring you are still fuelling yourself with wholefoods, vitamins and minerals it will ensure that you will still have a healthy glow throughout the whole holiday season.

Healthy food often gets a bad rap for being bland or not enjoyable. With herbs, spices, natural sugars and flavours it is possible to make treats and meals that taste even better than their ‘unhealthy’ counterparts – with the added bonus of home-made healthy alternatives having more fibre, nutrients and less additives, preservatives and chemicals.

Rather than buying store bought dip with excessive sodium, hidden sugars, canola oil and preserves the recipe for Green pea pesto dip ticks all the nutrition boxes whilst also having an extra protein kick, helping you feel more satiated. Without the processed blood sugar spikes, you will be more present and mindful and able to enjoy the company of the around you. Healthy habits using easy nutritional swaps are a perfect way to still enjoy healthy food and not feel left out.
