Spring Clean Your Diet

Ready for a fresh diet?

 

Spring is in the air…… It’s the perfect time to swap those soups & stews for something healthy, light and fresh! Whether you’re heading to the beach or for the slopes this Easter, we’ve got the some tips to spring clean your diet and get in shape this season.

  1. Ditch The Crap

This old favourite tops the list for every dieter out there! Cleaning the cupboards of your guilty pleasures is often the first step on successful weight loss journeys. But when you clear those shelves of processed, sugary foods, be careful to replace them with something healthy to grab when hungers strikes!

2. Breakfast

Plenty of people try to cut calories by skipping breakfast. But with snacks so readily available, why take the risk of going hungry? Instead, try starting every day with something that’ll actually fill you up! Whether you go yogurt, go eggy or you go old-fashioned with a bowl of porridge, getting a decent portion of protein in your breakfast keeps you feeling full for longer! Try our breakfast protein pots, such as almond butter & cinnamon quinoa porridge

3. Eat Seasonal

Every season brings a healthy crop of exceptional ingredients, but for me, there’s nothing better than a Spring meal! From artichokes to radishes, strawberries to peas, all the tastiest healthy ingredients will be coming into season in the next few weeks, so don’t miss your chance to fill up while they’re fresh!

4. Be Smooth

If you struggle with your five a day, a green smoothie is the perfect option for a spring health kick! You might not fancy going all out (nettles, or kale), but a blend of spinach and apple, or of avocado and mango, could be the delicious source of pure nutrition and fibre you’ve been missing!

Tip: Use seasonal ingredients to get your green smoothie as fresh as they come.

5. Cool Down

A key reason people over eat is plain old thirst! Whether you’re out and about or have your feet up, keeping an icy drink of water close at hand is the best way to stave off hunger as it gets warmer. Staying hydrated can make all the difference when it comes to keeping that urge to snack at bay.

6. Get Colourful

Winter food tends not to be too colourful… Potatoes, squashes, pies and pasta, while there’s nothing wrong with these colours, Spring is the time to get your fill of all the colourful, nutrient rich foods that your body has been missing. From fresh herbs to ripe and juicy fruits, filing your fridge with colourful ingredients will help vary your diet and get you the tastiest nutrition out there while it’s at its best!
