If you're like us and you LOVE food, here's a nifty little guide to shaping up this New Year, minus the dieting. Yep, you can actually celebrate food and get healthy, all at the same time.
For those of you who are not aware of it already, we launched some delicious <edible> cleansing extras in 2012. The concept was simple. As seasoned cleansers, we are all too familiar with the desire to munch on something between juices, so we came up with a guilt-free way of giving you exactly that.
Every ounce of these tasty little morsels is good for you. There's not a gram of sugar, yeast, dairy, wheat or gluten in sight. Nothing but beautifying good fats, muscle-toning protein, and revitalising vitamins and minerals in these bad boys. We're talking about our Activated Almonds and AMAZEballs (choc, green and almond-flavoured).
If you haven't already, check them out here. For the foodies out there who love to cleanse but need to chew, our cleansing extras are the perfect solution.
1. Make friends with food
Food is NOT the enemy; banish the word 'diet' from your vocab and think healthy, moderate eating instead!
2. Make your own food
Get to know your ingredients and influence what ends up on your plate; you'll save money too! Win win.
3. Focus on the 'experience'
If you enjoy what you eat, you're less likely to fall victim to the 'restrict and binge' cycle. The key is moderation.
4. Reinvent your favourite 'naughty' dishes
Put a healthy spin on them. For example, if you like ice cream, try making it with coconut milk and stevia instead.
5. Keep it social
You don't have to go cold turkey (forgive the pun) and eat alone post-festivities. Get your friends involved in a healthy feast with a 'bring a dish' date. Who said eating had to be a solo activity?
And there you have it, a lovely little guide to getting healthy minus the diet factor...
Food is here to be enjoyed after all!
