Sticking To Your New Year’s Resolutions

A new year brings change, fresh starts and healthy beginnings, which is why we want to give you a helping hand when it comes to sticking to your new year’s resolutions. Don’t forget, a balanced lifestyle is important but don’t put too much pressure on yourself, any improvement is a victory!

Eating Healthy

If you’re finding yourself trying to improve on what you consume every time a new year comes around then you’re not alone. Eating healthy is one of the most popular new year’s goal.

The key to eating healthier is planning and not being too hard on yourself. Find deliciously simple yet healthy recipes that get your tummy rumbling and write a list of the ingredients you need. Get your hands on the required ingredients and be creative in the kitchen.

Taking baby steps towards a healthier lifestyle means you’re more likely to succeed. To start, we’d suggest planning your lunch to take to work. It may just be one meal each day but it will make a huge difference (and you can feel less guilty about having a treat every now and then!)

Purchase glass or bamboo containers and prepare a couple of meals at a time and store in the fridge. This way you’re less likely to consume unhealthy food throughout the week and you’re more likely to stick to your healthy resolution. Click here for 5 simple meal prep recipes.

We stock a huge range of Wholefoods, Superfoods and herbs and spices that are full of nutrients!


Going Vegan

January is a popular time to go vegan due to a charity inspiring people to try vegan for January and throughout the rest of the year. Taking part in Veganuary can appear intimidating but going vegan has never been easier!

Why go vegan? For most, a love of animals is the catalyst. Some people want to feel better about the impact they make on the world. Others would like to set themselves a challenge, and many combine Veganuary with their ‘New Year’s Resolutions’ and see trying vegan as the healthiest start to the year.

Take the vegan pledge

To make sure you consume mostly vegan food and drink throughout the month of January you’ll have to do a little bit of research. Luckily Veganuary have put together a starter kit which you can find here. Once you have an understanding of which foods are plant-based, going vegan can be made easy by planning your meals. Take a look at our vegan recipes by clicking here. Before you know it eating vegan will become second nature and the planning can stop and you can explore the wide world of vegan food and drink.

Good news! Our range of high quality ingredients are vegan. From wholefoods and botanicals to herbs and spices, you’ll find everything you need to go vegan this January.

Drinking More Water

You’d be surprised just how popular this resolution is! Considering water is essential to our well being drinking more water is a goal people struggle with the most.

Consuming a decent amount of water everyday has such a positive impact on our well being, however, we often forget to drink enough water on a daily basis. It’s understandable if you think water isn’t the most exciting drink out there. Which is why we’ve put together 5 different ways you can stay hydrated all year round.

One of the best ways to consume more water is making it exciting. Get creative with our natural botanical tea ingredients and see what flavours your taste buds enjoy. If your beverages are delicious, you’re more likely to reach your goal.

Improving Skin And Hair Care

Self-care is an important new year’s resolution to obtain. Looking after yourself benefits not only your physical health but also your mental health. Make sure you put aside at least half an hour a day where you can relax and take care of your well being. Why not start with a skin care routine?

Fair Trade & Organic

If you’re incorporating more Organic & Fair Trade produce in to your lifestyle this year then we commend you. Not only is organic food better for your health it’s also beneficial to the environment. Supporting Fair Trade promotes training for farmers, which includes advice on switching to environmentally friendly practices.

Working towards a sustainable planet is important for the near future which is why we supply everything you need to stock up on Organic & Fair Trade ingredients for the year ahead.

Eating Breakfast

The most important meal of the day can not and must not be missed! When you’re trying to stick to a new year’s resolution skipping breakfast is not the best of starts. Eating a balanced breakfast sets you up for the rest of the day.

If you’re not used to eating in the mornings then make sure you allow yourself enough time to eat every morning and slowly wean yourself in to the routine of eating breakfast. Prepare a large batch of our Green Tea Chia Seed Pudding and store in the fridge for a healthy breakfast, everyday. Or for an alternative breakfast try our 100% vegan and organic go to breakfast cereal recipe.

Stocking up on a variety of tasty breakfast ingredients everyday makes eating breakfast more enjoyable. Sprinkle our range of seeds on top of your cereal, scatter with berries and ready to eat fruits or mix in our range of nuts.
