Give us your best healthy eating tips…

WE’VE BEEN ON a bit of a health buzz lately.

We’ve asked about your eating habits here and the difference between permaculture and organics here.

Now we want to know – how healthy are your eating habits?

Before you get going, we’ve rounded up a few healthy eating tips we’ve picked up in our extensive research.

We all know about getting our five-a-day in, but it can be hard to consume that much fruit and vegetables in one day, so our first tip is all about sneaking additional goodness into your diet so you can get to five-a-day in no time at all.

  • Top your cereal (or even better, porridge) with fruit and nuts for some Vitamin C as well as protein, magnesium and good fats from the nuts 
  • Make cauliflower rice or couscous and use instead of actual rice or couscous for a lower carb, sneaky veg side to your dinner
  • Pasta made from vegetables is also a good way to cut carbs and add veg – here’s a recipe for courgette pasta 
  • Keep nuts on your desk or in your bag for a snack that’ll keep you full during the day, and prevent that 3pm slump.

Another way to get on track with making healthier choices is to prepare your food in advance. We found this video prepping a week’s worth of food for two people in about two hours – which we will definitely try some day…definitely.
