Be prepared – invest a bit of time in planning your meals at the beginning of the week and make sure you have everything you need at hand. If you know exactly what you’re going to eat when you arrive home tired and hungry, you are less likely to find yourself phoning for a takeaway.
Get cooking – cut back where ever possible on highly processed and refined foods and cook from scratch whenever you can – if you do that you have much more control over what goes into your food.
Focus on your five-a-day – nutritionists around the world agree that eating at least 5 servings of fruit and veg a day is one of the easiest and best ways to stay healthy.
Think green – green leafy veg provide a host of important vitamins and minerals so whatever you are cooking think about adding in some greens or other vegetables.
Think before you drink – don’t drink your calories – avoid sugary drinks and don’t add sugar to tea or coffee. If you’re thirsty a glass of water is the healthiest way to hydrate your body and the best choice for your waistline and teeth.
